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!

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. :)

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…

LiewCF guess iPhone 5S & 5C prices will be…

Based on previous data and my secret magic, here is my guess of iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C price list:

  • iPhone 5S 16GB – RM2199
  • iPhone 5S 32GB – RM2499
  • iPhone 5S 64GB – RM2799
  • iPhone 5C 16GB – RM1899
  • iPhone 5C 32Gb – RM2199

Do you agree or disagree?
