1. A display apparatus, comprising:

  • a flexible display panel capable of undergoing deformation between a flat configuration in which the flexible display panel is substantially flat and a curved configuration in which the flexible display panel is curved; and

    a first arm section and a second arm section for deforming the flexible display panel between the flat configuration and the curved configuration;

    wherein each of the first arm section and the second arm section comprises a first terminal and a second terminal, the first terminal of the first arm section and the first terminal of the second arm section coupled to each other, and the second terminal of the first arm section and the second terminal of the second arm section coupled to the flexible display panel on a side distal to a light emitting surface of the flexible display panel and at two opposite margins of the flexible display panel, respectively;

    the first arm section and the second arm section constitute a folding arm for deforming the flexible display panel between the flat configuration and the curved configuration, the first arm section and the second arm section forming an included angle, the folding arm is capable of having a first included angle corresponding to the flexible display panel in the flat configuration and a second included angle corresponding to the flexible display panel in the curved configuration;

    wherein the display apparatus further comprises an included angle controller for adjusting an included angle of the folding arm thereby deforming the flexible display panel; and

    wherein the included angle controller comprises a retractable shaft capable of having a retracted state corresponding to the flexible display panel in the flat configuration and an extended state corresponding to the flexible display panel in the curved configuration;

    the retractable shaft comprises a first end coupled to the first arm section and the second arm section, and a second end coupled to the flexible display panel at a side of the flexible display panel distal to a light emitting surface.
