By now if you haven’t pre-ordered your iPhone X, don’t be surprised if you are greeted with shipping estimates that say you’ll have to wait as long as 5-6 weeks before your phone arrives to your doorstep. However it seems that not everyone is buying that particular shipping estimate.

In a memo obtained by BGR, it quotes RBC Capital Markets analyst Amit Daryanani as saying that Apple is simply being conservative with its shipping estimates, and that customers could actually be getting their phones earlier than expected. He writes, “We checked lead times for US, UK, Germany, UK, China, Japan and UAE, and interestingly the 5-6 week lead time is consistent across carriers, colors, memory size and geographies. This could mean that the 5-6 weeks number is conservative and users would likely receive it before that timeline.”

There is a chance that Daryanani could be right, because an earlier report had suggested that customers who were previously faced with 1-2 week shipping estimates found their shipping times brought forward. However this is not necessarily a guarantee and if you are planning to order the iPhone X, you best proceed under the assumption that it will take 5-6 weeks, or possibly even longer to avoid being disappointed.

So far things are looking pretty good for the iPhone X pre-orders as Apple has claimed that pre-orders are “off the charts”, which was echoed by Canadian carrier Rogers who claimed that they are seeing “tremendous customer excitement” for the phone.
