According to analyst Jun Zhang of Rosenblatt Securities (via Redmond Pie), it seems that he has estimated that Apple might have received anywhere between 9-12 million iPhone X pre-orders within the first 3 days of the phone going up for sale. He also writes that he estimates that China alone accounted for 6.5 million pre-orders.
Zhang’s note reads, “Based on the 5-6 week wait time for an iPhone X, we estimate that there were 9-12 million iPhone X total preorders over the last three days due to iPhone X’s current production ramp schedule (Oct: 2.5M, Nov 5-6M, Dec 15-16M). We also believe total preorders in China reached 6.5M over the last three days (including some pre-registrations without payment).”
At this point in time it’s hard to verify if Zhang’s estimates are correct, but from what we can tell the iPhone X is certainly in high demand and are seeing an estimated shipping time of anywhere between 5-6 weeks. However recently analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that Apple has managed to get a handle on production after smoothing out issues with the Face ID components, but we guess we’ll have to wait for the official numbers from Apple to see if the iPhone X is really selling as well as many seem to think, although Apple themselves are claiming that pre-orders are “off the charts”.
