It is no longer a secret that Xiaomi should launch its patented device with flexible display later this year. The device, which had been leaked by the famous leaker Evan Blass, was recently confirmed by the company’s chairman, Lin Bin.
Today new information has surfaced regarding the screen supplier of the Xiaomi’s flexible display. As reported by DigiTimes citing industry sources, Chinese manufacturer Visionox will provide the displays for Xiaomi‘s tri-folding smartphone.
The website further reports that as per the data from All View Consulting, in 2018 Visionox ranked as the world’s third-largest AMOLED panel maker.
According to Chinese market research firm Visionox was the third largest manufacturer of AMOLED displays in 2018. At the end of 2018, the manufacturer began building its flexible AMOLED production line in Hefei, Anhui Province, in China.
Currently, there is no exact date for the launch of flexible display smartphone, but it is under development. The company had to overcome technical difficulties during the development of the smartphone, Bin said.
If Xiaomi is really partnering with Visionox as a display supplier, it will have to wait until its production line is completed. Visionox has not stated how long it will take to complete the new line.
