Apple’s iPhone X was a smash hit on Black Friday, with Apple selling as many as six million of its tenth anniversary smartphone over the weekend.
That’s the bold claim from Chinese analyst Jun Zhang, who reckons Apple has already sold 15 million iPhone X units since it first hit shelves on 3rd November.
Zhang also says that the larger, 256GB iPhone X, which costs a massive £1,149 SIM–free, is outselling the smaller £999 64GB model by two to one.
The same analyst has said that Apple will now have four million iPhone X units rolling off of production lines by December. That reflects a growing belief that concerns surrounding the availability of the iPhone X were overblown.
The news is likely to mean the iPhone X will prove even harder to match up to for the likes of Google and Samsung. The latter is hard at work on its Galaxy S9, due for launch next February, but it’s unlikely to be able to offer the same quality facial scanning as Apple’s latest bestseller.
