After a slow start, China Unicom’s iPhone 5C and 5S Online Sales Reaches “100,000’ Mark
According to Apple Balla, China Unicom Ltd, China’s second largest carrier, has been reportedly found to sell 100,000 iPhones online within the first four days of the launch in China.
Executives of China Unicom Ltd inform that the company is almost out of iPhones due to the massive pre-orders it has received from the buyers.
Since releasing the iPhone 5S and 5C, Apple has been fighting with the downfall of its share. The situation gets even worse as China telecom declares that the estimated subsidiaries are about 15% lower than the previous model. Though the number of sales is not up to the mark yet, it has strengthened Apple’s chance of making the new iPhones a ‘blockbuster’ in the world’s largest mobile phone market.
Analysts believe that China Unicom’s intelligent strategy of providing lucrative contracts for the new iPhones is a key reason for the massive response of the buyers.
The new iPhones will be found in stores from the 20th September.
