The highly-anticipated new iPhone X is selling for extortionate prices on eBay.

It comes after Apple fans were told they’d be waiting up to six weeks for the pre-ordered handsets to arrive via post.

Apple doesn’t provide pre-order figures on iPhones, but a spokesman for the Cupertino-based company said customer demand for the latest device is ‘off the charts.’

The 256GB model of the iPhone X is the tech giant’s most expensive smartphone, costing $1,829.

But on eBay, resellers are taking advantage of the demand by offering them for sale at hugely inflated prices.

One seller is offering a 256GB model in space grey for $12,000, while another is offering the same model along with Apple Care for $6,000.

A seller in Melbourne is offering a 64GB model in silver to be picked up or sent via express post for $5,000. 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted eBay for comment.
