According to the report, the Science Park Administartion approved Apple, Auo and Epistar's plan on February 18. The new fab will act as an expansion of Apple's existing display center in Taiwan.

In early 2019, AUO announce it plans to accelerate its development of Micro-LED products, and last month the company announced that it has developed a 9.4" 228 PPI flexible LTPS microLED display together with PlayNitride. In September 2019 AUO's president said that he expects Micro-LED displays to enter the market within 1-2 years, starting with large-area signage and small-sized VR displays.
