Chinese Carriers Take In 1 Million iPhone 6 Pre-order In The First 6 Hours

Earlier today, Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have been available for pre-order in China, making the sales really very hot. According to a new report from Tencent, the country's three major wireless carriers recorded more than 1 million pre-orders during first 6 hours of availability.

It is still unknown what sales looked like throughout the rest of the day, and the 1M figure doesn’t include orders taken directly by Apple, or its 6,000 authorized resellers. It also doesn’t account for the 9+ million iPhone 6 and 6 Plus reservations that were made last week.

The new iPhones will launch in China on October 17. Both will support TD-LTE and FDD-LTE, and be offered by China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom across the country. The first two carriers are among the world’s largest, with 800M and 300M subscribers, respectively.

Stay tuned...
