Three certifications are needed for the large-scale commercialization of 5G smartphones: 3C certification, network access license and State Radio Regulation Committee (SRRC) certification. These three certificates are independent and indispensable. Obtaining these certificates means that the phone can be sold on the market. In addition, insiders told reporters that in general, smartphone manufacturers will strive for these three certificates at the same time, and there will be no discrepancies in the time of delivery.

It is worth noting that among the eight smartphones mentioned above, OnePlus and Vivo obtained their 3C certification on July 15, and Huawei first obtained the certification for the three 5G smartphones on June 11. The official website of the China Quality Certification Center also disclosed the details of the manufacturing plants. Among the four 5G phones of Huawei, two of them were produced by Huawei Machine Co., Ltd., with the other two manufactured by Flextronics Manufacturing (Zhuhai) Co., Ltd. and Foxconn Shenzhen.
