Comcast confirmed that Xfinity Mobile, a service that leans on an MVNO deal with Verizon and the MSO’s WiFi network, will offer the iPhone X, Apple’s new pricey, high-end smartphone that starts at $999.
Comcast said its customers can pre-order the iPhone X starting October 27 at XfinityMobile.com and at Xfinity Stores. The product will become available in Xfinity Stores across the country at 8 a.m. local time on November 3, the company said.
Xfinity Mobile also offers Apple’s recently introduced iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus models.
Comcast, like other mobile service providers, will be looking for Apple's new device to give its sub base a boost.
Comcast launched Xfinity Mobile in May, but hasn’t announced sub figures. An industry source confirmed a Bloomberg report earlier this month that Comcast has amassed more than 200,000 Xfinity Mobile customers. Comcast is scheduled to release Q3 results on Thursday, Oct. 26.
Comcast also announced that, through December 3, new customers who switch to Xfinity and buy an X1 triple-play with internet, TV and mobile service will receive a $500 gift card.
