It appears China is ready to embrace the Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones, as preorders reportedly topped 20 million in three days. A mix of China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom, the three largest Chinese wireless carriers, snagged 10 million preorders, while retailers racked up 9.5 million preorders.

Previous generations of the iPhone sold extremely well in the United States and Western Europe, but struggled against Google Android-powered devices in emerging markets. However, analysts have predicted huge potential for consumer electronics in China, as the market continues to mature.

 

The iPhone will hit China starting on Friday, October 17, and should continue to generate surprising interest leading into the 2014 Christmas holiday season.
