ITRI has been doing research and development of flexiable AMOLED displays for over a decade and have already completed their R&D and attained production capacity. However, they are still continuing to refine their products' performance including display stability and full integration of touch functions while also strengthening anti-wear and folding capabilities of display panels.

At Touch Taiwan 2017 they showcased their newest edition product, which have been tested to have the capacity to be folded up to 200,000 times with a folding radius of 3mm. In addition, it can withstand being subjected to 1kg of steel wool friction over 50,000 times. It already meets the requirements of smart mobile devices and allows for further room for imagination of future mobile devices.

ITRI commented that the front plate of this wearable foldable touch AMOLED panel utilizes a specialized material patented by ITRI which can increase wearing and anti-folding performance while also having no influence on light penetration. Consequently, it can maintain display quality and also increase the lifespan of products.

This material is one of ITRI's trade secrets; therefore, it will not be leaked to the public. However, ITRI stated that is a composite type material.
