TCL CSOT aims to make joint efforts towards building a semiconductor display industrial ecosystem
TCL CSOT announces the launch of 17-inch Printed OLED Scrolling Displays and 6.7-inch AMOLED Rollable Displays, at CES 2021. TCL CSOT is a subsidiary of TCL Technology, which is dedicated to driving greater innovations in semiconductor display.
The flexible 17-inch Printed OLED Scrolling Display, at 0.18mm thick, is a unique example of a larger-scale flexible display technology. The portable 6.7-inch AMOLED Rollable Display re-defines the standard form of a smartphone. With a rollable AMOLED display, it can be extended from 6.7-inches to 7.8-inches with a simple tap of the finger, turning it from a smartphone into a tablet and creating an entirely new user experience with its easily adaptable user interface. The smartphone is less than 10mm thick, making it significantly thinner than the foldable smartphone.
Through the enhanced design of the smartphone’s flexible screen, the curling and sliding radius of the flexible screen can be as small as R3mm, combined with the special sliding mechanism design. With the simple swipe of a button, the screen originally curled and hidden inside the case can be pulled out, therefore enabling the phone to stretch out and draw back. The sliding life of the device is up to 100,000 times. The software interface can be adapted accordingly for single-hand use or multi-tasking.
This year, reports published by Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) have further highlighted the huge potential of the display market. In its OLED material market forecasts report, DSCC projected that the AMOLED stack material market will grow from $951 million in 2019 to reach $2.69 billion in 2024 at a CAGR of 23 per cent. Specifically, in another foldable/rollable display shipment and technology report, DSCC forecasted an 80 per cent CAGR increase in foldable/rollable smartphone revenues from 2020 to 2025, reaching $105 billion.
“TCL CSOT will venture further into new applications for display technologies. The company will continue to strengthen its cooperation with upstream and downstream partners in the industry, focusing on panel microsystems, new materials and key components. TCL CSOT aims to make joint efforts towards building a semiconductor display industrial ecosystem,” read company’s official statement.
