Tianma emphasizes durability of its OLED display

Tianma had a demonstration of folding its OLED display while displaying an image. The display was not placed in a plastic case. The company emphasized the high durability of the display, saying, "You can freely touch it." According to the company's exhibition panel, it can be folded more than 200,000 times.

The OLED display can be folded with the screen facing outward. The curvature radius (outer radius) of the folded display is 5mm. Its screen size and pixel count are 7.41 inches and 1,440 x 3,360 (WQHD), respectively.
