A new survey conducted by RBC Capital Markets offers a clue on what iPhone X model you should buy if you want to get the new handset on launch day, Nov. 3. The survey, which included 832 would-be iPhone X buyers, was first reported by MacRumors.
Of those surveyed, 28 percent said they plan to purchase the iPhone X as their next smartphone. An additional 20 percent said they intend to buy the iPhone 8 Plus, while 17 percent will go for the iPhone 8. The remaining 35 percent will probably purchase an older iPhone model, ranging from the iPhone 6s to the iPhone 7 Plus.
Of those planning on buying an iPhone X, 57 percent think they’ll purchase the 256GB model priced at $1,149, while 43 percent say they’ll buy the $999 64GB model.
Demand for the iPhone X will far outpace supply for months to come. Because of this, it might be wise to purchase the 64GB version when the handset goes on sale Oct. 27. This model might be in less demand and therefore, the one you’re most likely to receive on Nov. 3.
