Apple tend to set records: each new product — a new record for sales. And although the new 4-inch iPhone SE, the successor released in 2013, iPhone 5s is the flagship solution, the demand for the device was very high.
The boom in the Chinese market was expected, but such ardent desires from the buyers, perhaps, was not expected and the sellers themselves. For the first three days from the start of pre-orders for iPhone SE Chinese vendors have received orders for more than 3.4 million devices, according to CNBC. The most popular in China is version of the smartphone in Golden casing, in the second place the model in the color “rose gold”.
The start of the official preorder iPhone SE was held on 24 March, and the first smartphones to get into the hands of the owners on March 31. Pre-orders for the device will only be accepted in the first wave of countries – Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore, UK, virgin Islands and USA.
CNBC if the data is correct, then forecasts of experts of Wall Street in the person of UBS Group AG and RBC Capital Market, announced the iPhone will be SE 10-15 million a year, may be far from the truth. Interest in the new product in the world’s largest market allows to speak about the failure of the new 4-inch smartphone.
In Russia accepting pre-orders for iPhone SE will begin March 29, and the exact start date sales still unknown. The device will be available with 16 and 64 GB of internal memory. Price 16 GB version will be 37 990 rubles, 64 GB – 49 990 rubles.
