Comcast will open pre-orders for pricey smartphone on October 27 10/24/2017 1:07 PM Eastern

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.
