The opening volume of the iPhone 11 series released yesterday (25th) was 30% higher than the previous iPhone XS and XR series.

According to the mobile communication industry today, the opening volume of the iPhone 11 series that started yesterday is estimated to be 130,000 to 140,000 units.

This is more than 30% higher than 100,000 units of the first day of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR that were released in November last year.

However, the gap between the 220,000 units of the first day of the Galaxy Note 10 released in August is very different.

Yesterday, the number of three telecommunications companies was 27,000, slightly lower than 28,753 previous works.

By telecom company, KT increased by 160, but SK Telecom and LG U + dropped by 50 and 110, respectively.
In the first industry, the expectation that the iPhone 11 series would fall out of LTE only and demand would fall in the domestic 5G market is growing rapidly.

However, first of all, the response from consumers in the first launching countries, such as the US and Japan, was more positive than expected, and many domestic customers were not satisfied with the 5G quality of mobile carriers.

A telecom official said, "I expected the demand to be very low because it was modeled on LTE while 5G was in place, but Apple's influence is more than expected."

In response to the launch of the iPhone 11, Samsung announced yesterday that it will hold a special used phone compensation program for customers who purchase new smartphones from Samsung until November 30 with 3 mobile carriers.

If you return used phones while purchasing new smartphones such as Galaxy Note 10, Note 10 Plus, Galaxy S10 series, and Galaxy A90, you will be rewarded up to 180,000 won more than the purchase price of used phones.
