Unknown Upstart Pioneers Foldable Glass That’s 50% Cheaper

  • Global smartphone makers testing ultrathin foldable glass
  • UTI CEO looking for tenfold growth within a couple of years

South Korea’s UTI Inc. has set itself the ambitious goal of growing tenfold over the next two to three years, and its key for unlocking that surge is its ultrathin foldable display glass.

The company, a supplier of camera lens covers to many of the world’s top smartphone vendors, has developed what it calls UTI Folding Glass (UFG), which costs half as much as rival technology and is already in testing by around ten firms, including Chinese and American phone makers, Chief Executive Officer Doug Park said in an interview.
