Apple newly-introduced iPhone 4 could be a record-breaker. Apple is accumulating millions of iPhone components, expecting its latest handset could break 10 million units sold in one fiscal quarter, reports suggested Friday.
Since May, Asia Optical has shipped an average of 3 million VGA lenses for the iPhone 4’s front-facing digital camera, according to the supplier’s chairman, Robert Lai. Apple’s orders mean up to 30 percent higher revenue for the company.
If correct, Apple could be on track to ship at least 9 million iPhone 4s during the fiscal September quarter, a 20 percent jump in iPhone sales before the iPhone 3GS is counted. The reports may also mean Apple could break its previous single-quarter sales record of 8.75 million units set during the second quarter of 2010.
