china iphone 6

During a three-day period since the start of pre-orders for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on October 10, Chinese carriers and e-commerce site Jingdong Mall ( have collected a combined total of an estimated 20 million units, according to a Tencent report [Google Translate] Monday relayed by Digitimes.

The country’s three leading wireless operators — China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom — have collected about ten million pre-orders while Jingdong Mall processed about 9.5 million pre-orders, of which 4.66 million are for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 model and 4.82 million are for the bigger 5.5-inch handset.

DigiTimes notes that the 20 million milestone includes pre-orders processed by Apple Stores, but excludes those accepted by the Cupertino firm’s authorized resellers in the 1.33 billion people market.

Tencent previously reported that Chinese carriers booked four million reservations for both devices, with two million pre-orders processed in just six hours and four million in within the first day.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are scheduled to hit store shelves in China this coming Friday, Apple said in a media release. Analysts are expecting about sixty million iPhone sales in China during the fourth quarter of the year.

The new iPhones are scheduled to launch in an additional 36 countries and markets later this month, Apple confirmed via a media release this morning.
