AMOLED displays are mostly used in mobile phones and small-screen tablet computers as they consume less power and offer wider viewing angles and faster response times than liquid-crystal display panels.

Demand for such panels has risen as global smartphone-makers such as Samsung Electronics and China’s Oppo and Vivo adopted them on their devices.

Samsung Electronics recently unveiled its fitness wearable tracker the Gear Fit2 that comes with a 1.55-inch AMOLED display.
