Yesterday, Chinese iPhone 6 reservations were stated as 2 million
in six hours, a rather stunning statistic. Today, an update from
the Chinese media press Tencent now says that reservations have
topped 4 million. If all these reservations convert into orders,
China alone may beat out the iPhone 6’s launch numbers, which —
at the time — were considered to be impressive.
What’s more interesting is that Tencent claims it has exact order
numbers from one of the main companies offering reservations. This
gives some insight into how sales will be split between the 4.7
inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 Plus. According to the
report, Jingdong has seen 1,106,379 reservations for the iPhone 6
and 1,189,083 for the iPhone 6 Plus.
