We hope the long wait is worth it for these folks

If you want to know why Samsung continues to mock Apple customers in its commercials, look no further than this. Apple’s next generation smartphone hasn’t even been announced yet — the keynote is just under a week away — and CNBC is reporting that eager Apple fans have already marked their place in line to be among the first to purchase the iPhone 6.
 
Customers started lining up on Sunday with sleeping bags in hand at Apple’s flagship store in New York City. According to CNBC, Jason and Moon Ray paid BuyBackWorld employees Brian Ceballo and Joseph Cruz $1,250 to nab their top two spots in line. The Ray couple plans to use their first place position in line to promote their iPhone app.


Ceballo claims that he has made $7,000 in the past five years by staking out a top spot in line prior to each new iPhone launch.
 
Apple’s iPhone 6 will be announced on September 9, reportedly in both 4.7” and 5.5” versions. Online pre-orders will likely commence on Friday, September 12, while general availability should begin on September 19.

The smartphones are expected to bring a 2GHz dual-core processor, NFC technology for a new mobile payments system, and a Category 4 LTE-A modem. The iPhone 6 will also forgo the squared off design of the iPhone 5/5s for a more rounded shape that fits easier in your hands.
