Russians who snapped up the new iPhone X devices following Friday’s launch have already started reselling them on the internet.
“Since eight in the morning, those who got the brand new iPhone X devices from the Apple Store and official retailers, have already presented around 50 of them on the Yula free ads website,”.
“The average price for the 125GB model is 144,000 rubles ($2,470), which is almost 57% higher than the price set by the manufacturer. The highest price is 210,000 rubles ($3,600), which is 2.3 higher that the in-store price,” the Yula source stressed.
Besides, many individual resellers have several of the latest models and confirm it by attaching photos of the smartphones to their advertisements.
Apple CEO Tim Cook called the new iPhone X “the biggest leap forward since the original iPhone,” and it’s easy to see why. The OLED display — an iPhone first — is called the Super Retina Display and measures 5.8 inches, with a resolution of 2,436 × 1,125 pixels. It features Dolby Vision and HDR10 for stunning high-contrast video playback, as well as TrueTone dynamic white-balance adjustment, a feature of the 10.5-inch iPad Pro and the new iPhone 8 models. The screen takes up the whole screen and there’s no home button — you unlock your phone with your face. Oh, and it’s water- and dust-resistant, and capable of charging wirelessly.
The iPhone X costs $1,000, and it’s available in limited stock at Apple stores, carriers, and retailers on November 3. You can nab one in either 64GB or 256GB, but the latter will cost $1,150. If you’re planning on picking one up at a store, Apple recommends arriving early — you may want to consider waiting on line the night before or early in the morning.
Some carriers, like Sprint, are cutting customers a discount. New and existing customers on the carrier’s Sprint Flex plan will be able to get a 64GB iPhone for $22.22 per month for 18 months ($400) with an eligible trade-in.
