It took them a while but the iPhone 5S and 5C is set to reach Malaysia on 1 November. The release is part of Apple’s product logistics for both devices to 35 countries on 25 October and 16 countries (including Malaysia) on 1 November.
However, there are no news so far from major telcos such as Maxis, Celcom and DiGi on the price and pre-booking dates. But I guess things will get pretty busy in the next two weeks or so.
The iPhone 5S will be available in silver, gold and space gray. Although we haven’t heard anything about the price for the iPhone 5S, but according to the trend so far, the price won’t stray further than the previous iPhone 5 launch. The iPhone 5C is supposedly to be cheaper but don’t put your hopes too high, I’ve got a feeling the iPhone 5C price will start at RM1599 for the non-contract unit.
