First batch of Apple iPhone X shipped from China, only 46,500 units headed to UAE and Netherlands: Reports

After a long wait, news is now coming in from China that the first batch of Apple’s iPhone X has been shipped. Reports from Chinese media outlets ITHome and Xinhua state that 46,500 units of the iPhone X have shipped from Zhengzhou Xinzheng Integrated Bonded Zone in China, as per information obtained from Zhengzhou customs.

Sadly, the iPhone X units are not headed to India, or even their home market. As per reports, the hot off the press iPhone X units will be further shipped to  Netherlands and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) from Xinzheng International Airport and Shanghai Pudong International Airport. To ensure smooth shipment of the first batch of Apple’s Tenth Anniversary iPhone X, Zhengzhou customs had reserved the clearance status of the consignment in advance.

Chinese reports further claim that the iPhone X could be up for pre-order in some countries by October 27 and would available to customers by November 3.

The iPhone X has been facing majour production issues as reported by famous Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. The analyst has gone as far as to say that the availability of the iPhone X will be limited till 2018, due to the complicated nature of the phone’s True-Depth camera system.

The iPhone X was earlier reported to launch in India on November 3. The flagship device has sports an edge-to-edge display, with a cutout for all the sensors at the top. The Touch ID has been removed (we hear it’s gone for good) and the phone can be charged wirelessly. The iPhone X will be priced at Rs 89,000 in India for the 64GB variant. The phone will also come in a 256GB variant, which will come with a whopping Rs 1.2 lakh price tag.
