TCL Ramp Up Flexible Panel Production

Chinese electronics manufacturer TCL, who is the parent licensee of Australia’s third-biggest smartphone seller Alcatel, is gearing up its flexible OLED production.

The company said in February it planned to introduce foldable devices, and is expected to begin producing panels for them by the end of the year after purchasing low-temperature polycrystalline silicon equipment for its Chinese plant, according to local press.

TCL will reportedly also use the plant equipment to produce OLED television panels.

Several companies are working on foldable phones at the moment, with proposed devices from Samsung, Huawei and Apple.

Samsung was supposed to release its Galaxy Fold smartphone earlier this year, but has pushed back release a number of times after problems from  early reviewers.

Foldable phones will likely be premium models with high price-tags, so it remains to be seen if Australians will take to an Alcatel foldable with the same gusto they have for its budget-priced models.
