Some people in the queue are ready both to wait in line and to deliver the new iPhone X to a client. This service costs 75,000 rubles (some $1,300).

Apple unveiled its new iPhone X, as well as iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, on September 12.

According to re:Store, Apple premium reseller in the country, Russians are more interested in the new iPhone X than in iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

The number of iPhone X devices preordered in the first six minutes is the same as the number of iPhone 8s preordered in the first 24 hours.

The 64 GB iPhone X will cost in Russia 79,990 rubles for ($1,380). Those who want a 256GB device will have to cough up another 12,000 rubles, since its price tag will be practically 92,000 rubles ($1,570).

According to analysts, Russia will see a deficit of iPhone X devices until the end of 2017, since supplies to the country are limited and the first delivery was pre-ordered in a few hours.
