Malaysia will be getting the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus soon as Apple has announced the release date for the company’s latest smartphones on its webpage today. The date? 14th October 2017.
While Apple has yet to announce the official pricing of both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, it is expected that either phones will be a lot cheaper than the ones that were available for pre-order on Lazada a few weeks ago. Of course, with the iPhone 7’s availability looming on the horizon, Malaysia’s telco companies have begin preparing the expect contract-iPhone bundle plans. Maxis, Digi, Celcom and UMobile have all opened their iPhone 7 pages, allowing anyone to register their interest in the iPhone 7. However, none of the telcos are revealing their iPhone 7 Plans yet.
For those who have been waiting for the iPhone 7 with bated breath, you need only wait for another two weeks or so before you’re able to get your hands on one without resorting to international imports.
While Apple has yet to publish the price that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will go for, local resellers such as Machines have begun listing the prices for both phones. In the case of the iPhone 7, the smartphone will start at RM3,199 for the 32GB model, going up to RM4,199 for the 256GB model. For the iPhone 7 Plus, prices begin at RM3,799 for the 32GB model while the 256GB model will cost RM4,799.
In the meantime, Maxis, Digi and Celcom have announced that they will be opening pre-orders for the iPhone 7 on the 7th of October. Those interested in acquiring an iPhone 7 through either telcos will be able to do so via Celcom’s Blue Cube webpage, Maxis’ webpage, or Digi’s webpage.
