The Kunlun glass is the first smartphone glass to receive a five-star review from Switzerland’s SGS
Huawei’s Kunlun glass is the first smartphone glass to receive a five-star review from Switzerland’s SGS, a testing, inspection, and certification company. The Kunlun glass is created using a special process that includes 108 different procedures including 24 hours of crystal growth and a melting process that takes place at a sizzling hot 1600 degrees. Thanks to billions of high-strength nanocrystals, Kunlun glass reportedly handles an impact 10 times better than any other smartphone glass. PBK Reviews put the orange Huawei Mate 50 through a drop test to see how the Kunlun glass holds up after getting dropped on concrete from various heights. The results of the test were quite impressive, with the glass surviving four drops from various heights without any major damage.
The Huawei P60 line is expected to be unveiled next month
Huawei is expected to launch the P60 series next month and it is expected to also feature Kunlun glass. Besides the toughened glass display, other innovations on the Mate 50 Pro that should be found on the P60 Pro include Huawei’s in-house XMAGE photography system and the Low battery emergency mode. This kicks in with only 1% of battery life remaining and allows users to make up to 12 minutes of phone calls while keeping the device running on standby for up to three hours. The Kunlun glass and the other innovations show that even with the United States holding one hand behind the Chinese manufacturer’s back, it can still come up with worthy innovations.
