3G network was first introduced by NTT Docomo in Japan in 2001. Those phones have 4 times data transferring capabilities than 2G , which is near 2Mbps. From Blackberry’s first phone Blackberry 5810 to Apple’s first ever smartphone iPhone 1, those all released in that era.

Currently most countries are using 4G technology which was working from 2009 and provides high-quality video streaming/chat, fast mobile web access, HD videos, and online gaming. iPhone 6 is considered one of the most successful in this era.

Already various companies like Sony, Huawei,  Blackberry, Realme, IQOO, OnePlus are in the way of making these smartphones or already made it.
