TCL subsidiary China Star Optoelectronics Technology (CSOT) is set to start construction on a Gen 11 LCD panel fabrication plant in Shenzhen, China.
Expected to cost RMB50bn ($7.8bn) the facility will produce extra-large high-resolution flat panel displays targeting 45", 65" or even larger LCD TV markets.
Upon completion, the new production line will exceed BOE’s Gen 10.5 — which commenced construction in December 2015 in Anhui Province — in terms of generation and investment.
Currently, CSOT has three production lines, namely T1, T2 and T3, producing small and large LCD panels for TVs, smartphones and tablets.
