China Mobile said it will buy 10,100 smartphones from five domestic manufacturers for 5G testing — the first planned purchase after the leading carrier formally received a commercial license for the new technology last week.

The phones would include 5,000 Huawei Mate 20Xs, 2,000 Xiaomi MIX3s, 2,000 ZTE A10 Pros, 1,000 Oppo Renos and 100 Vivo NEXs, China Mobile said this week. The carrier would also buy 5,000 Huawei CPE Pros and 2,000 ZTE CPEs, devices that convert 5G signals into Wi-Fi signals.

Despite the recent license approvals, some analysts said China’s major carriers may be slow to offer consumer 5G services because of high costs.
