Official iPhone 6s Malaysian pricing revealed

UPDATE: Maxis reveals conflicting RRP prices for the new iDevices
UPDATE 2: Apple Malaysia reveals its iPhone 6s pricing on the Online Store

Scalpers can be gone, unless they want to price their stocks at a more competitive price; as the official prices of the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are revealed by Digi. It’ll cost you from RM 3,199 for the iPhone 6s, while the iPhone 6s Plus starts from RM 3,699. Pre-orders start on the 9th can be made through the Celcom, Digi, Maxis and U Mobile but these devices will only be in your hands from October 16th onwards.

Hotly anticipated by Malaysians, as the Apple craze will sweep the nation yet again this year, though the long queues have dissipated since the iPhone 4s. Other than the previously stated telcos you’ll be able to get the smartphones from authorised retail outlets.


Tougher and thicker, thanks to the 7000D series aluminium that added 0.1-0.2mm to its overall footprint. It also adds on 14grams of extra heft at 143 grams for the iPhone 6s and 20grams on the iPhone 6s Plus at 192g.

Stacking the phones side by side, you’ll see a 4.7-inch (iPhone 6s) and 5.5-inch (iPhone 6s Plus) Retina Display – the same on the older 6 and 6 Plus smartphones. Under the hood, there’s a 64-bit enabled A9 chip that has a 70% increase in performance over the A8 processor.

Performance is multiplied by integrating the M9 motion co-processor onto the A9 chip, saving some space internally as well at the same time. Taking a look at its battery, in actual fact the capacity decreases but in real-life situation it still maintains the same battery life with stronger power efficiency in iOS. For its colour options, Apple now adds a Rose Gold variant that is probably aimed to draw in the more feminine high-class crowd.

Storage of these two devices remain the same at 16GB, 64GB and 128GB, a hard-case to justify why Apple doesn’t raise their bare minimum to 32GB but people will likely accept it.

Force Touch is a new feature on the latest iPhones that we’ve seen in action on the MacBook trackpads and Apple Watches. Already multi-touch packed, the screen now adds pressure sensitivity technology dubbed as 3D Touch. Gentle taps, long presses and hard presses bring up new options – allowing users to do more with the same device.

Doubling the iSIght camera on their new duo, both of them get bumped up to 12-megapixels with f/2.2 aperture, at the same time it also gets dual-tone LED flash for a more natural looking flash. The big brother in the form of the 6s Plus does have an upper hand in the camera department, as Apple has added Optical Image Stabilisation. On the front however, the old 1.2-megapixel sensor is replaced by a 5-megapixel shutter with f/2.2 aperture and adding the new Retina Flash to brighten up your selfies.

Apple has prepared their new iPhones’ by adding more pixels to their sensors but how well will the devices stack up against the other camera smartphones in our latest camera comparison between the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s Plus, LG G4 and Samsung Note5.
