UPDATE: The iPhone SE is officially priced in Malaysia from RM1,949. More details here.
The iPhone SE has hit first wave countries including our southern neighbour Singapore. While it will take some time before it hits Malaysia, a few enterprising stores have already started selling imported sets. If you can’t wait to get your hands on the most powerful 4-inch phone, you can get one now and the price markup isn’t as insane as its former flagships.
Over at Lazada, the iPhone SE can be yours from as low as RM2,049 for the 16GB version in Silver and Grey, while the Gold and Rose Gold colours are going for slightly more at RM2,088 for the same spec. The larger 64GB iPhone SE is offered at RM2,549 for the Silver and Grey, and it’s the same extra RM39 if you prefer Gold or Rose Gold.
Over at DirectD, they are offering the 16GB version at RM2,099 for Rose Gold/Gold, while the 64GB version is going for RM2,599. Alternatively, SatuGadget offers the iPhone SE 16GB at RM2,088, while the iPhone SE 64GB is offered at RM2,588.
Is RM2,000 too much to pay for a 16GB iPhone SE? Over at Singapore, they are selling them officially at S$658 (RM1,897) and $828 (RM2,387) for 16GB and 64GB respectively. Depending on how Apple perceives the strength of our ringgit, we are guessing that the iPhone SE could be priced from RM1,999 when it gets here. If you can wait, the iPhone SE should be out on our shores in the next 2 months and our 4 big telcos have already started teasing that it’s coming soon. According to Apple, the iPhone SE will hit 110 countries by end of May.
