Looks like our neighbour down south will be first to receive the much anticipated iPhone 5S and 5C while Malaysians have to wait a little longer before they can get their hands on it. Singtel today announces the pricing plans for the iPhone 5S and 5C variants.
The iPhone 5S will retail starting from $698(RM1798) for the 16GB model when bundled with SingTel’s cheapest two-year contract. The 32GB model will cost $818(RM2106), while the 64GB model will go for $968(RM2494) under Singtel’s SuperLite plan.
The iPhone 5C will start at $468(RM1206) for the 16GB model under the same plan, and as for the 32GB model, it will be $698(RM1798).
It is still unknown when will Maxis, Celcom and even DiGi will make an official announcement of the arrival of iPhone 5S and 5C, but I’m quite sure no Malaysians will be travelling down to Singapore to get their hands on a non-contract set for now, at least not with the current exchange rate.
Pricings are based on $2.58 conversion rate.
