Apple on Monday said it has sold over two million of its new iPhone 5 in China, just three days after its launch on December 14. iPhone 5 will be available in more than 100 countries by the end of December, making it the fastest iPhone rollout ever.

“Customer response to iPhone 5 in China has been incredible, setting a new record with the best first weekend sales ever in China. China is a very important market for us and customers there cannot wait to get their hands on Apple products,” said Tim Cook, chief executive officer of Apple.

The high initial sales of the iPhone 5 in China shows that the interest towards Apple’s smartphones in the country is very high despite competition from Google Android and Microsoft Windows Phone 8.

Successful start of sales in China may also signal that Apple can finally fulfill demand in the rest of the world and that the iPhone 5 yields at Foxconn have finally reached the desired numbers.

Apple’s iPhone 5 is made of glass and aluminum and sports entirely new design that removes glass from the back side of the device and features long 4" screen with 1136*640 resolution (326ppi, 800:1 contrast ratio, 500cd brightness). The sixth-gen Apple iPhone sports brand-new Apple A6 system-on-chip with two ARM Cortex-A15 cores with NEON SIMD accelerators, quad-core PowerVR SGX543MP2 graphics adapter, new image co-processor, new audio co-processor and numerous other features. The iPhone 5 supports ultrafast wireless standards including GSM/EDGE/UMTS/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA/CDMA EV-DO/4G/LTE thanks to a unique single-radio 4G/LTE solution that provides fast speeds while fitting into the new thin design. The new iPhone 5 also features dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi support with up to 150Mb/s transfer rates. Apple iPhone 5 features the new Lightning connector that is smaller, smarter and more durable than the decade-old 30-pin connector. Apple iPhone 5 comes in either white and silver or black and slate.
