Despite rumours of stock shortages and claims that Apple would be unlikely to meet demand for its new flagship smartphone, the Cupertino firm has announced that the iPhone X will be available in Thailand before the end of November.
According to an official announcement from Apple on Tuesday, the iPhone X will go on sale in Thailand on November 24th.
On the same day the iPhone X will also be released in 12 other countries including Albania, Bosnia, Cambodia, Kosovo, Macau, Macedonia, Malaysia, Montenegro, Serbia, South Africa, South Korea and Turkey.
Apple said the iPhone X will be available in silver and space gray from authorised Apple resellers, Apple.com and mobile carriers.
The price for the iPhone X in Thailand is as follows:
iPhone X 64GB – Bt 40,500
iPhone X 256GB – Bt 46,500
Apple’s other new iPhones, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, went on sale in Thailand on November 3rd priced from Bt 28,500 [iPhone 8 64GB] to Bt 32,500 [iPhone 8 Plus 128GB], respectively.
Early reviews of the iPhone X in the run up to its release have unanimously judged it the best iPhone yet, although some reviewers pointed out potential glitches in FaceID, the company’s new face recognition system, Reuters reported.
Despite initial negative forecasts for Apple’s new smartphone, demand for the iPhone X has been strong in countries where it has already launched.
Analysts now predict that sales of the iPhone X will put Apple firmly on course for a $1 trillion valuation.
