iPhone X shipping dates slip to 5-6 weeks as scalpers flood eBay with >100% premiums
The iPhone X went on sale just two hours ago, and it is now very much sold out around the world. Almost all models of iPhone X listed on Apple.com are now estimated to ship at least five weeks out, which means customers trying to order now won't see the phone until December.
As always, scalpers are trying to profit on the constrained supply with dozens of ‘confirmed preorders' hitting eBay … with prices skyrocketing above the normal retail price …
There are many listings on eBay touting 256 GB iPhone X units, which retail for $1149, priced at $1500, $2000 and climbing.
The 100% price premium $2000 model currently has 17 bids, so it certainly seems like there is demand. Other classified selling sites are also flooded with confirmed preorder units at similar prices.
On Apple.com, all iPhone X models are reporting 5-6 week delivery estimates across both Space Gray and Silver colours, and both 64 GB and 256 GB storage options.
