Sorry scalpers, the iPhone X is coming to Malaysia on 24 November

No more selling iPhones at MYR10,000, OK? Apple has just announced that its 10th anniversary iPhone will be coming to Malaysian shores on Friday, 24 November 2017.

The iPhone X is priced at MYR5,149 for the 64GB model, while the top-of-the-line 256GB model goes for MYR5,899. The device is available in Space Grey or Silver.

Surprisingly, Apple did not mention any pre-order but it is expected to be a week before it hits retail channels, which is Friday, 17 November 2017.

As usual, you’ll be able to buy one (or two) from Apple authorised resellers, Apple Store online, telcos as well as other retail partners.

It would be an understatement to say that the iPhone X is the most anticipated Apple product of 2017. And as it goes, the world went a little berserk when the device was made available last Friday, 3 November, in tier one countries.

Apple CEO Tim Cook said during Apple’s quarterly financial announcement that iPhone X orders have “already been very strong.” He said that Apple is working very hard to get the device to customer hands.

The Cupertino company has reclaimed the #2 spot in global smartphone sales on the back of strong iPhone sales, despite the absence of the iPhone X. The company also saw double digit growth in iPad sales, as well as healthy Mac sales and impressive growth in its services category.

Apple’s best smartphone features an all-new glass-metal design with an all-screen 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED display, cutting-edge TrueDepth camera with FaceID, powerful A11 Bionic chip, incredible 12MP dual cameras, wireless charging, just to name a few. It runs the latest iOS 11 out-of-the-box.

Earlier, DxOMark remarked that the iPhone X “delivers one hell of a smartphone camera” after the device recorded the best ever subscore in still photography.
