iPhone 8 & iPhone 8 Plus Prices in Malaysia – It’s Official

Malaysian iPhone fans rejoice, Apple’s latest smartphone, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, is finally coming to our shores.

With an official launch date of 20th October, the local telcos have begun their pre-order campaigns for Apple’s new phones, giving those who want one a chance to get the new iPhones for a discounted price.

For this article, we’ll be looking at all four major telcos: Maxis, Digi, Celcom and U Mobile. Hopefully, this handy guide will allow you to decide which plan best suits your budget.

Apple Malaysia

Before we get into the telco prices, let’s talk about the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Pluses’ recommended retail price.

While Apple themselves have yet to officially announce the local pricing of the phone, and indeed, have yet to open pre-orders on their own site, Apple resellers such as Machines and Switch has since revealed the official pricing of the phones.

They are as follows:

Model Capacity Pricing
iPhone 8 64GB RM3,649
iPhone 8 256GB RM4,399
iPhone 8 Plus 64GB RM4,149
iPhone 8 Plus 256GB RM4,899

Now that you know what the iPhone would retail for on its own, let’s move on to the telco offerings.
