Apple may have just had their best weekend for sales in their history. Although they haven’t shared any figures, Jun Zhang an analyst who works for Rosenblatt Securities has calculated that they might have sold 6 million iPhone X models.
It’s a long weekend (4 days) that’s being looked at, but no matter how it’s worked out the numbers are staggering. In a regular 4 day period 1.75 million iPhone X phones are sold so if these figures are right they more than tripled their normal sales rate.
18 iPhone X units sold every second
If you are still struggling with such big numbers it works out something like 17 or 18 iPhone X units sold every second over a 4 day period!
Before the top end handset was launched many said that such an expensive mobile phone wouldn’t sell. It’s looking fairly clear that despite the price tag of £999 for the iPhone X 64gb and £1149 for the iPhone X 256gb these smartphones are selling like hot cakes.
Samsung Galaxy S9
The next big smartphone launch is expected to be the Samsung Galaxy S9. I’m sure the Samsung senior management are now thinking that maybe they should offer a handset in the same price range. Maybe they too will bring out 2 handsets at the same time as it seemed to work pretty well for Apple.
