We all know that the new iPhone will be reaching our shores on 31 October 2013, all three major local telcos as well as several Apple resellers here have already started their teasers and registration of interests but one big question remains, what will the retail price be? Only about 2 more weeks till we know for sure but it looks like Malaysian Wireless has got some insider information about the pricing as well as launch programs for the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S in Malaysia.
- iPhone 5C 16GB – RM1,899
- iPhone 5S 16GB – RM2,299
- iPhone 5S 32GB – RM2,599
- iPhone 5S 64GB – RM2,899
Looking at how the iPhone 5S is slightly more expensive in certain countries around the world compared to the iPhone 5 at launch, it make sense that it might be a little more expensive here too (the starting price of the iPhone 5 last year was RM2,199) but Malaysian Wireless noted that there could be about a RM100 difference between certain operators for the iPhone 5S. The iPhone 5C’s pricing is pretty much confirmed.
As for the launch event, unlike previous iPhone launches in Malaysia, it looks like there will not be a midnight launch this time round, from the telcos at least. Celcom will have a day launch on the day itself, DiGi will do its usual online store thing while Maxis is still deciding on the launch. Find out more on Malaysian Wireless. What are your thoughts about these pricing? Will they really be that expensive?
