Apple and its carrier partner China Unicom will be launching the new iPhone 4S in China on January 13. However, people have started lining up outside Apple Stores in China almost a day before to get their hands on the new handset. Steven Millward posted on Asia Tech News:

There are already huge queues outside of China’s five official Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) stores in readiness for tomorrow’s launch of the iPhone 4S. At the two stores in Beijing, and the three in Shanghai, there are clearly lines stretching hundreds of meters, with reports of hundreds of queuers at each, snaking around city blocks.

Hopefully, this time crowd outside Apple Store in China won’t create a problem like the iPad 2 launch. When a grey market scalper was beaten up by people for creating problems in the queue, resulting in broken Apple Store glass door.

From the lines outside Apple Store in China it looks like Apple will have another hit product launch in China tomorrow.
