While others are clamouring to get their hands on the iPhone 6 through illegal means, Chinese tycoon Qian Fenglei has achieved the impossible by gifting an embossed iPhone 6 to his entire high school class, numbering at least 14, at a renuion dinner.

The iPhone 6 launches officially only on October 17. Qian, who is chairman of Universal International Holdings (Hong Kong) Limited, is well known for being generous – he had also previously donated 2 million yuan for relief work after the 2008 Wenchuan earthquake, reports CCTV News.
While his ex-high school classmates are definitely more than grateful to receive the phones with the line “Class of 1992, Maoshan Middle School” inscribed on it, jealous netizens have been much more derisive.
