News & Reviews: Apple iPhone 6 Plus
Sep 10, 2014
While the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus have yet to arrive in Malaysia, and won't be for another month or so, the Apple iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C have both received a price cut at the Malaysia Apple Store. The 16GB version Apple iPhone 5S now starts from RM1999 (previously it was RM2399), while the 32GB version will be priced at RM2199. An 8GB Apple iPhone 5C on the other hand will be priced from RM1499, with no 16GB or 32GB version available at the Malaysia Apple Store. Colours remain the same though, with the iPhone 5S coming in silver, gold and space gray while the iPhone 5C comes in vlue, green, pink, yellow and white. We expect the pricing at Malaysian telcos to go down even further soon, perhaps even for FREE for the Apple iPhone 5S (the iPhone 5C is already free). We also expect the higher-end 16GB and 32GB Apple iPhone 5C and 64GB Apple iPhone 5S smartphones in stock to either get a quick sale or disappear off the shelves quietly.

Confirming many of the rumours, Apple is finally entering the phablet market with the official announcement of the Apple iPhone 6 Plus. Like it's smaller Apple iPhone 6 sibling, the overall thinner design with rounded corners and sides remains the same as all the dummy casings which were leaked lately. The iPhone 6 Plus will be 7.1mm thin and there is no premium version which will have a sapphire crystal glass display. As it is, most of the tech specs and features on the Apple iPhone 6 Plus remain the same as the Apple iPhone 6, except that the Apple iPhone 6 Plus has a larger 5.5-inch display with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution for a 401 ppi pixel density. Other tech specs different in the Apple iPhone 6 Plus include optical image stabilization for the still 8MP iSight rear camera. The iPhone 6 Plus also has support for landscape mode and some apps can activate a split display while the keyboard also has more keys.
