Celcom reveals iPhone 8 plans and pricing ahead of Malaysian launch

Pre-orders of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus officially start tomorrow, 13 October 2017. The new generation smartphone from Apple is set to hit retail channels starting 20 October 2017. This hasn’t stopped telco Celcom in revealing its contract plans and retail pricing of the devices ahead of time.

As expected, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are offered together with Celcom’s FIRST Postpaid contract plans. The iPhone 8 goes from as low as MYR1,748 while the iPhone 8 Plus starts from MYR2,188. Celcom has inadvertently revealed full retail pricing of the iPhone models (before GST), even before any official Apple announcement.

Based on 6% GST, the iPhone 8 line-up should be priced as follows:

  • iPhone 8 64GB – MYR3,599
  • iPhone 8 256GB – MYR4,299
  • iPhone 8 Plus 64GB – MYR4,099
  • iPhone 8 Plus 256GB – MYR4,799

It’s slightly more than the iPhone 8 Malaysian pricing as predicted by our friends at Soyacincau, but it’s close nonetheless.

Do take note that this could be different from Apple Malaysia’s official pricing, which should be revealed tomorrow.

In terms of contract plans, Celcom is bundling the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus with various plans ranging from MYR98 to MYR188 per month.
