  • Rumours: HTC One A9 leaks show another Apple iPhone look-a-like

    Rumours: HTC One A9 leaks show another Apple iPhone look-a-like

    Leaked images of the upcoming HTC One A9 (set for announcement tomorrow) indicate that like the Lenovo Sisley, the One A9 is going to look like the Apple iPhone 6. While the Sisley didn't have a protruding camera and actually changed up the antenna positioning, the One A9 looks to be nearly identical to the iPhone 6. Cher Wang, HTC CEO was even quoted as mentioning that the One A9 will be a good alternative to Apple's iPhones, as it "strikes a balance between beauty, performance and simplicity."

    Tech specs and features include a midrange Snapdragon 617 processor, 2GB / 3GB RAM, 16GB /32GB storage, a 5-inch FHD display, 13MP rear camera and Android 6.0. No Malaysia release dates or pricing details yet but it is going for €599 (RM2883) in Europe. We do recommend taking a pinch of salt with this as it is still a rumour but we'll find out more tomorrow.

  • Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus now officially available in Malaysia

    Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus now officially available in Malaysia

    After the various midnight launches last night, the Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are now officially available in Malaysia. Yesterday we did manage to handle both the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus and both feel as slim and premium as the previous iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The major difference here is that only the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have gold and rose gold colour options, the other smartphones, including the iPhone 5s only come in silver and space grey. Pricing remains the same despite the ringgit stabilizing somewhat at RM4.18 against 1 USD. This probably means we'll have to see a drop back to the previous RM3.5 or RM3.3 levels for Apple to reduce the pricing further. Regardless, you can get the latest and most expensive Apple iPhone now from the Apple Store Malaysia or check out our phone comparison tool for a plan which might suit your needs or budget.

  • Apple Malaysia confirms official iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus pricing from RM3199 to RM4699

    Apple Malaysia confirms official iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus pricing from RM3199 to RM4699

    As the roll-out of Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus pre-order initiatives continues for Malaysia's telcos, a closer look at Apple Store Malaysia has revealed official pricing for the two smartphones. Confirming our previous Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus price listings, the iPhone 6 PlusiPhone 6 and iPhone 5s are also available but only in 16GB and 64GB (just up to 32GB for the iPhone 5s) storage versions. Pricing has not decreased since the earlier price hike, in fact, there have been increases across the board for all Apple iPhones. Quite obviously, the main culprit is Malaysia's current currency value and the addition of 6% GST. However, the value of the ringgit seems to be improving, so lets all hope that it recovers enough for Apple to lower the price somewhat. In the meantime, check out the price listing below for an idea of how much you're going to have to save up for the latest Apple iPhones.

  • Rumours: U Mobile has a Flexi U MicroCredit installment plan for the Apple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus?

    Rumours: U Mobile has a Flexi U MicroCredit installment plan for the Apple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus?

    In the wake of the recent reveal of the Malaysia pricing for the Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, we managed to get some leaked images of U Mobile's latest Flexi U MicroCredit installment payment plan. The leaked slides detail an installment plan that offers you the choice to decide payment schedules of 12, 24, 30 and 36 months with interest rates from as low as 0.84%. You can also choose to pay by cash or credit card and also select the financing amount from RM1000 to RM3500. As before with the U MicroCredit plan, the new Flexi U MicroCredit plan will allow both U Mobile postpaid and prepaid users to get the iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus. In addition, you can apply either online or through U Mobile branches or dealers with minimal submission documents. While we do caution you to take this with a pinch of salt, the slides also seem to be genuine, which is more good news for those of you wanting a more flexible way to buy the new Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Check out the Flexi U MicroCredit slides for yourself in this article

  • Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus telco pre-orders reveal Malaysia pricing details

    Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus telco pre-orders reveal Malaysia pricing details

    Malaysia's telcos have started the pre-orders for the Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, inadvertantly revealing the pricing for both smartphones in Malaysia. While the official pricing is still due on 16 October 2015, we assume that the price won't change that much as it follows our earlier predictions of being about RM400 or so more than before. You can see the complete listing according to Digi below but according to their pre-order page, they are offering a special promo of RM200 discount with the iPhone 6s pricing from RM1152 and the iPhone 6s Plus from RM1577. Celcom don't have any pricing details but do have a listing of Celcom and Blue Cube outlets that you can walk in to do a pre-order. Maxis are offering 12 month and 24 month contracts with the iPhone 6s from RM1990 and the iPhone 6s Plus for RM2415. U Mobile is the only other major Malaysian telco to not have a pre-order but they are offering the iPhones on U MicroCredit and also have what looks to be a more flexible Flexi U MicroCredit plan in the works.

  • Apple iPhone 6s confirmed coming to Malaysia on 16 October 2015

    Apple iPhone 6s confirmed coming to Malaysia on 16 October 2015

    The Apple Malaysia site recently revealed that the Apple iPhone 6s will be available in Malaysia on 16 October 2015. While Malaysia has never been in the first batch of countries to get the latest Apple iPhone, traditionally the latest iteration has almost always appeared sometime in November or December. The Apple iPhone 6s brings a number of new hardware upgrades to the iPhone along with a stronger, tougher full metal body. These features and tech specs include the latest Apple A9 processor, a 12MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, 3D touch, new Rose Gold colour and more but there are still no details on Malaysia pricing just yet. No news yet if this also means that we could be seeing the Apple iPhone 6s Plus on the same date as well but due to Malaysia's current currency rating we expect that the traditional $100 (RM445) price increase will be higher than before. Currently the iPhone 6 is going for RM2699 so a jump to RM3199 for the iPhone 6s doesn't seem entirely out of the question.
