Apple has announced that the new iPhone 5S and 5C will be reaching Malaysian shores on November 1, major telcos and Apple resellers in Malaysia are putting up teaser ads and gearing up for the much awaited launch. And with just two weeks to go, Malaysian Wireless has got some insider information of the pricing of iPhone 5S and 5C in Malaysia.

We are not sure the accuracy of this information but we’re pretty certain that these prices are definitely cheaper than the current retail price of parallel import units. Check out this price list from a local mobile phone vendor in Malaysia.

According to some sources, Celcom is the first to open up their pre-booking site and the packages their offering are pretty tempting. Their lowest package, the Celcom First Data mPro Plus has a monthly commitment of RM88 over 24 months contract and price of the device is only RM1,588. Their premium package is rather tempting, for a monthly commitment of RM128, you only pay RM1,538 for the device and you get the Samsung Galaxy Gear worth RM999 for FREE! But of course, it’s only for their 1st 100 customers. So if you really want the Galaxy Gear for FREE, then you better sign up quick.
