Overview of flexible
display technology

Flexible display offers many advantages over conventional display technology: ultra-thin,
light weight, bendable, portable, shatter-proof, unbreakable and low energy, etc. Royole’s
flexible displays will have profound implications for next generation electronics by
enabling brand new form factors and applications.

Royole - flexible display technology

In three years, we have rapidly accumulated hundreds of intellectual property rights and key technical know-hows covering all aspects of display manufacturing including materials, processing, devices, circuits, electronic systems and module development.Based on our proprietary flexible display technology, we created the thinnest color AMOLED flexible display that was integrated with a fully-functional mobile phone platform. The overall display thickness was only about 0.01 mm (10 µm), as thin as an onion skin. Due to its ultra-thin thickness, bending radius of the flexible display can be as small as 1 mm, which is even thinner than a pen refill. The display still has the capability to display high quality videos with brilliant and vivid colors in the bending status or after 50K ~ 100K of bending cycles.

As thin as butterfly wing: a thickness of 0.01 mm.
Flexible form factor: a bending radius < 1mm.

Potential applications of flexible displays

It is widely accepted by the display industry that flexible
Active-Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode (AMOLED) technology will dominate the next-generation flexible displays,
offering unquestionable advantages over liquid crystal display (LCD) and electrophoretic display (EPD),
in applications ranging from novel smart phones, wearable electronic devices and Internet-of-Things (IoT).
