Apple Vision Pro selling for as much as $5,000 overseas

I haven’t experienced any problem, but several users on Reddit have shared images of a clean-cut shear in their Apple Vision Pro front glass appearing for no obvious reason.

According to Bloomberg, Apple’s limited release of the Vision Pro headset is fostering a resale market that’s pricing the device far beyond its $3,500 starting price.

The article says 256GB Apple Vision Pro sold for $5,400 dollars (¥800,000) on Japan’s Mercari marketplace. A seller in China is purportedly asking for $5,000 (36,000 yuan), while another in Singapore is asking for more than $6,000 on Lazada. 

Bloomberg also says a Hong Kong electronics importer wants $4,850 (HK$35,800) “with the price shifting on a daily basis.” As far as markets outside the U.S. go, Apple’s Vision Pro headset will be released in China as early as April and “no later than May,” according to supply chain sources quoted by Asia’s Wall Street News (via IT Home).
