Apple announced on December 17 that it had sold more than 2 million iPhone 5 smartphones on the Chinese mainland since its launch there.

"Of the total iPhone 5 sales in the country in the first three days, China Unicom has contributed the largest share," said Lu, adding that he believes that the company is still in the leading position, in terms of iPhone 5 sales.

Currently, iPhone 5 distributors in the country include China Unicom (Hong Kong), China Telecom Corp Ltd and some other retailers.

Statistics show that more than 300,000 units of China Unicom's iPhone 5 were ordered online, Lu said.

"I can assure you that aside from the iPhone 5 online orders, we also sold over 300,000 units (via our shops, stores and counters)."
