Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus is set to launch in China on October 17th, with the pre-orders kicking off on Friday, October 10th.
According to a new report, China’s top three carriers, China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom, received over one million pre-orders of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in the first six hours of availability.
It’s not just the carriers, Apple Online Store also started taking pre-orders of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus on Friday, along with 6,700 authorized resellers. Additionally, it’s still unclear if the one million figure includes pre-orders taken through the online Apple website or the authorized resellers.
Even before the pre-orders kicked off, some websites and retailers were taking reservations of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Fortune reported that a Chinese website Jingdong, received almost nine million reservations for the devices, which were distributed equally. However, the reservations doesn’t mean the units were sold, so it doesn’t make much of a difference. We can’t be sure of how many people pre-ordered the device out of those nine million.
Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus is already available in a number of markets across the globe. Apple announced that iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sales reached a whopping ten million units over the launch weekend.
