iPhone XS Malaysia

Apple has yet to announce the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max officially in Malaysia but a couple of retailers have started offering imported units since last weekend. If you can’t wait to get your hands on the latest and greatest iPhone models, the iPhone XS can be yours from RM4,799.

Retailer Satu Gadget Dot Com is offering the iPhone XS 64GB for RM4,799. According to their product page, this is an Apple Singapore unit and they are offering the device in both Gold and Space Grey.

If you’re looking for more options, DirectD is offering the complete iPhone XS range and you can even get it with dual-SIM slots for the iPhone XS Max. Below is their complete price list for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max:

iPhone XS (Dual E-Sim) Hong Kong set ‘SEALED BOX’
iPhone XS (64GB) – RM4,888
iPhone XS (256GB) – RM5,688
iPhone XS (512GB) – RM6,588

To refresh your memory, the iPhone XS is an incremental update of the iPhone X. While it shares a similar exterior, it runs on a newer 7nm Apple A12 Bionic Chip. It still retains a dual 12MP setup but it actually uses a new camera sensor that has a larger 1.4-micron pixel size for better low light performance. Apple has also added depth-control for portrait mode as well as a new Smart HDR feature.

The official Malaysian release should be happening soon and we think it could go on sale as early as mid-October based on last year’s release. Several telcos have started teasing the iPhone XS on their website and both models have also gotten the green light from SIRIM.
