On Sept. 22, Apple announced it had sold 4 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus units worldwide during the first weekend of release. Reservations in China for Cupertino’s newest smartphones have already topped that, according to China’s Tencent (via 9to5Mac).
The report notes that Jingdong, one of the main companies accepting iPhone reservations, has seen preorders evenly split between the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, with the latter having a slight lead.
As 9to5Mac rightly notes, “outside of China, the 4.7 inch model is generally considered to be the more popular version, although it is unclear how much of this is down to consumer demand or simply a by-product of supply constraints.”
Perhaps confirming this, Digitimes said on Friday that the iPhone 6 Plus accounts for 60 percent of iPhone 6 production.
On Thursday, Chinese news outlets were reporting that initial reservations for Apple’s newest handsets had topped 2 million after just six hours.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus officially launch in China on Oct. 17.
