The premium smartphone is sold through Redington, Ingram Micro, Rashi Peripherals and Reliance.

The entire 55,000-unit batch was sold within 72 hours. Apple plans to ship another 25,000 units in the next few days. "We take a few days for the iPhones to be brought here, a minimum of three days for new stock," said a source from Apple India. Store sources indicate that the wait may well be longer if the stocks do not reach in time.

A Samsung spokesperson said the company has sold more units of its Galaxy Note 4, which was also launched on the midnight of October 16, than iPhone6 and 6Plus.

Apple and Samsung are trying to cash in on the festival season in India to push their latest premium products, priced in excess of 50,000.
