iPhone 12 Malaysia: Here’s the official local pricing, starts from RM3,399

Apple has unveiled its latest iPhone 12 lineup which consists of 4 models – the iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max. All models are coming to Malaysia soon and the official local pricing has been revealed.

Here’s the full pricelist for Apple’s new lineup:

5.4″ iPhone 12 mini
64GB – RM3,399
128GB – RM3,599
256GB – RM4,099

6.1″ iPhone 12
64GB – RM3,899
128GB – RM4,099
256GB – RM4,599

6.1″ iPhone 12 Pro
128GB – RM4,899
256GB – RM5,399
512GB – RM6,299

6.7″ iPhone 12 Pro Max
128GB – RM5,299
256GB – RM5,799
512GB – RM6,699

What’s remarkable is that Apple has retained the same starting prices from the previous generation iPhone 11. Last year’s entry-level iPhone 11 starts from RM3,399 and this is the new starting price for the iPhone 12 mini. Meanwhile, the iPhone 11 Pro at the time of launch was priced from RM4,899 while the Max was going from RM5,299. It’s also worth pointing out that the iPhone 12 Pro series now comes with a starting storage capacity of 128GB instead of 64GB.

At the moment, the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro are already listed on Apple Malaysia’s website but they have yet to reveal its availability details. In first wave countries such as the US, Australia, UK and Singapore, pre-order for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro will start this Friday 16th October and it will be available on 6th November. The iPhone 12 Pro Max and 12 mini will be released much later with pre-order to start from 16th October and 6th November respectively in first wave countries.

The iPhone 12 and 12 mini come in 5 colours – blue, green, black, white and red. For the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max, they are available in graphite, silver, gold and pacific blue. All models across the range supports 5G and they all come with OLED-based Super Retina XDR display. Even the most affordable iPhone 12 mini is now rocking a Full HD+ resolution of 2340×1080 pixels.

For the first time, Apple no longer includes the charger and headphones in the box as part of its sustainability efforts. The new packaging is smaller and it only comes with a USB-C to lightning cable.
