iPhone sold out in Samsung’s Home Turf, South Korea

3iphone6s_3448296biPhone pre-order units have vanished in south Korea and people are lining up at the physical stores with a hope that they might lay their hands on an iPhone 6s or 6s plus.

South Korea is the home country of Samsung and LG; both are dominant players in the smartphone world. To combat the iPhone fever, LG has lowered the price of its flagships as much as 30% and Samsung apart from reducing the price tag, introduced 2 new colours of the note 5 with a hope that people will pick up their phone. But the dent made by them seem to be a small one as people have line up near the brick and mortar stores on the Thursday morning to buy an iPhone that will be available the following morning.

The three major Korean carriers have reported that their pre-order units have sold out under 30 minutes and they are also holding separate event to welcome the iPhone into their country. The below twitter picture is a clear evidence that the people of south Korea clearly love the new iPhone.

The iPhone 6s and 6s plus have sold more than 13 million units in their first weekend of availability and despite the fact that they look similar to last year’s iPhone, people lined up to buy them. The iPhone 6s is available for 720,000 won (US$635) for the 16GB model.
