Malaysia iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C retail prices have been revealed by Apple online store, a week before official launch.
It is unusual that Apple Malaysia reveal the retail price for iPhone 5S and 5C before the launch date - Oct 31, 2013.
For the past years, the iPhone price only revealed on the day of telco’s iPhone launch. This year, Malaysia iPhone prices are revealed 1 week before launch date, just after the Apple special event on 22nd Oct!
What a surprise!
Malaysia iPhone 5S price
- iPhone 5S 16GB – RM 2,399
- iPhone 5S 32GB – RM 2,749
- iPhone 5S 64GB – RM 3,149
Malaysia iPhone 5C price
- iPhone 5C 16GB – RM 1,999
- iPhone 5C 32Gb – RM 2,399
Both iPhone models are not available for online purchase yet. Malaysia telcos – Maxis, Celcom, DiGi – already start registration of interest for iPhone 5S and 5c.
This year Malaysians have to pay more for new iPhones. The prices are few hundreds more expensive than my previous price guess, which are also last year’s iPhone 5 prices. Anyway, Malaysians still enjoy cheaper iPhone price than our Singapore friends.
