Apple iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C will be released in Malaysia on October 31st, 2013. Malaysia telcos already open registration of interest. However, as usual, all Malaysia telcos can not disclose the official prices before the launch date.
iPhone 5S price in USA is same price as iPhone 5 last year, we knew that the USA official prices are USD$649 (RM2061) for iPhone 5S 16GB and USD$549 (RM1744) for iPhone 5C 16GB.
According to the iPhone 5 comparison I did last year, the iPhone price difference is around 10%.
What are the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C prices in Malaysia?
The unofficial iPhone 5S & 5C prices
Malaysia unofficial sellers are selling iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C before the official launch date. Generally, they are selling iPhone 5C matching price in US, but set a high price for iPhone 5S.
Most sellers are selling iPhone 5C 16GB below RM2000. The cheapest I saw is from a seller on eBay Malaysia – RM1870 for iPhone 5C 16GB. For iPhone 5S, the price can go as high as RM2900 for iPhone 5S 16GB!
Why are iPhone 5S so expensive? I think most people will buy best performance iPhone 5S instead of plastic iPhone 5C repackage from iPhone 5. Plus, many people would like to buy golden iPhone 5S.
I really feel sorry to those people who bought iPhone 5S at over-charged price…
