Apple hasn’t even officially announced its new iPhone 8 and iPhone X lineup of devices, and people are already lining up for it in Australia. As noted by CNBC, the first people have started camping out in front of Apple’s Sydney retail store…

The image was first shared on Twitter by Australian journalist Luke Hopewell and shows a person who has set up nothing but a lawn chair and a MacBook.

We’re still 24 hours away from Apple even announcing the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X, and even further from the devices being released to consumers. At this point it looks like the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be released on September 22nd, while the iPhone X could be even further away than that if rumors of production problems turn out to be true.

Even though Apple hasn’t yet announced its new trio of iPhones, there’s plenty we already know. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will feature a new glass design with support for features such as wireless charging, while the iPhone X will be radically different with a new bezel-less design, Face ID, and much more. 

Whether or not these people stay in line for nearly three weeks remains to be seen, but if they do, then that’s some true dedication.
