Chinese display maker BOE capped off a busy event showcase at the International Display Technology Conference (ICDT 2021) held in Beijing. Among the brand’s latest developments we got to see the first flexible sliding OLED display.
Details on the actual panel are scarce with BOE revealing an outer bending rate radius of 4mm and a dynamic scrolling frequency. The panel appears to have no visible crease while expanding which is the major advantage over current foldable displays.
BOE’s new prototype reminds us a lot of Oppo X 2021 rollable concept which is no coincidence since BOE was confirmed as the display maker for Oppo’s concept phone. We’ve also seen other sliding display prototypes with LG’s now canceled rollable concept phone and TCL’s own Roll-out display concept showcased last year.
Apart from the new slide-out panel, BOE also showcased a new micro LED panel with a peak brightness of 10,000 nits and a 360Hz professional gaming monitor with a 1ms fast grayscale response time.
