Select Huawei phones can now get screen upgraded to Kunlun Glass in PH

Huawei‘s self-developed Kunlun Glass is one of the main attractions of the Huawei Mate 50 Pro orange-leather variant, which is officially priced at P68,999 (around $1,264) in the Philippines (although you can also purchase it with a Globe data plan, too). And rightfully so.

As seen in numerous promotional videos — and as we can personally attest to — the new screen glass is impressively durable and likely strong enough to save your smartphone from an accident or two. But did you know that if you own a recent Huawei flagship like the P40 Pro or Mate 40 Pro, your device can now receive the Kunlun Glass treatment at a reasonable price?

Huawei Philippines recently announced that certain Huawei phones are eligible for an upgrade to the Kunlun Glass outer glass, which is said to be up to 10x tougher than traditional screen glass. It likewise has the first-ever five-star glass drop-resistance certification from SGS, one of Switzerland’s leading providers of inspection, testing, verification, and certification service.

You can drop your phone off at select Huawei service centers to get the upgrade, but you’ll need to back up your data first and reformat your device before going there.

The graphic above lists all the eligible models on the local market, as well as how much the Kunlun Glass enhancement for each handset will cost. Unfortunately, if you own a P30 or Mate 30 series device or older, your phone is not among the models listed. The same goes for Huawei tablets. Interestingly, the regular Mate 50 Pro is not eligible as well. The flagship was priced at P58,999 ($1,081) in the Philippines at launch.

Of course, you can still have your Huawei device’s screen replaced if it is damaged or cracked, albeit with ordinary screen glass instead of Kunlun Glass. We suggest heading over to a service center near you to get a proper quotation. Hopefully, the company adds more Kunlun Glass-eligible models to the list soon. More drop-off locations and service centers would also help.
