Fresh off the release of the absurdly tough Huawei Mate50 Pro Orange Vegan Leather that had a reinforced Kunlun glass sheathed display that was tough enough to crack walnuts open, Huawei Malaysia is now introducing two new Mate50 Pro Kunlun variants in Carbon Black and Silver.
Alongside the two new phones, Huawei has also released the new Huawei Watch D that has a built-in pressure cuff to allow for accurate blood pressure measurement and monitoring in real time.
@hitechcentury We put the Huawei Mate50 Pro Vegan Leather variant that features their tough new Kunlun glass that’s coming soon to Malaysia in a drop test versus a floor and a walnut with surprising results! #huawei #mate50pro @huawei #everonwards #kunlunglass #droptest #tecktok #sembanggadget #hitechcentury ♬ I Really Want to Stay at Your House – Rosa Walton & Hallie Coggins
What is the Huawei Mate50 Pro Kunlun Carbon Black and Huawei Mate50 Pro Kunlun Silver
The new Huawei Mate50 Pro Kunlun Carbon Black has a textured Vegan Leather finish on the backplate akin to the Orange Vegan Leather variant while the Mate50 Pro Kunlun Silver variant has a smooth metal finish backplate akin to the regular Silver versions.
For the uninitiated, the new Kunlun armoured glass sheathing the Mate50 Pro Kunlun variants is as tough as it gets with a rated resistance of up to 32kg pressure on account of the usage of a sophisticated heating process that introduces nanometer sized crystals into the glass over a 24-hour heating process. In fact, it’s tough enough to get 5 star drop resistance certification from Switzerland’s SGS authority. This is on top of the Mate50 Pro’s IP68 water and dust resistance.
Bar the enhanced toughness from the Kunlun glass, the Huawei Mate50 Pro Kunlun Carbon Black and Huawei Mate50 Pro Kunlun Silver are functionally identical to the standard Mate50 Pro versions with a 6.74-inch 120Hz OLED display, a Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 processor with a 4G modem, 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage, an XMAGE 50MP Ultra Aperture quad camera system and a 4,700mAh battery with 66W fast charging.
While they run Huawei’s own EMUI 13 and get apps from their AppGallery, the recent addition of the Lighthouse app has now put Google apps support back on the menu for their most recent phones including the Huawei Mate50 Pro Kunlun Carbon Black and Huawei Mate50 Pro Kunlun Silver
