“Official Prices” for iPhone 5S and 5C in Thailand


A number of Thai tech websites have published a price list from True that seems to suggest official prices for the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. Obviously no reaction from True yet on this supposedly leaked document. The official prices are not normally published until close to release time so we cannot confirm for sure that these prices are correct. But, they are around what we expected. At the moment, we are not expecting an official release of the iPhone 5S and 5C in Thailand until towards the end of the year.


iPhone 5s (all colours) 16 GB 24,550 Baht
iPhone 5s (all colours) 32GB 28,250 Baht
iPhone 5s (all colours) 64GB 31,950 Baht

iPhone 5c (white) 16GB 20,700 Baht: 32GB 24,500 Baht
iPhone 5c (yellow) 16GB 24,550 Baht: 32GB 28,250 Baht
iPhone 5c (pink) 16GB 24,550 Baht: 32GB 28,250 Baht
iPhone 5c (green) 16GB 24,550 Baht: 32GB 28,250 Baht
iPhone 5c (blue) 16GB 24,550 Baht: 32GB 28,250 Baht

It’s interesting to compare these prices with the present prices of the iPhone 5S and 5C on the grey market at MBK. They are doing the opposite with the 5S being sold at different prices based on their colour. The gold version sells for 13,500 Baht more than the black version! However, the 5C is being sold at the same prices. If you want to buy a black iPhone 5S 32GB now, you only have to pay 1,750 Baht more than the official price. For the iPhone 5C 16GB, the white 16GB device is actually 1,700 Baht cheaper! Of course, if you buy on the grey market there is no warranty.


iPhone 5s 16 GB (black) 27,500 Baht, (white) 31,500 Baht and (gold) 41,000 Baht
iPhone 5s 32GB  (black) 30,000 Baht, (white) 32,500 Baht and (gold) 47,000 Baht
iPhone 5s 64GB  (black) 33,000 Baht, (white) 37,000 Baht and (gold) 51,000 Baht

iPhone 5C 16GB (all colours) 19,000 Baht
iPhone 5C 32GB (all colours) 22,500 Baht

    I’m looking to buy one this weekend on MBK, is it factory unlocked?

    Hi Richard,

    Thanks a lot for this post. I was just looking out for exact prices for this Apple’s new iphones and got it at your site.

    As TechInAsia mentioned, the official prices are weird: why the white version is cheaper than the other colors? Why the 32GB of the 5C are the same as 32GB from the 5S?

    What we should normally see is the 5C 32GB having the same price as the 5S 16GB, and the 5C all colors should all have the same price. So what I think is that the 5C white displayed here is actually the price for all models of 5C, it would make sense if we see how that works in the US.

    right now you just can buy on Grey Market in Thailand, check MBK, Central or SecondSquare, Paradise…what ever Mall you will find.

    There are a lot of seller they sold iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C from USA and other Countrty!
    But don’t forget…if you buy a US iPhone, the Apple Care is only in US!

    And the prices on grey market are very diffrent to the prices here:

    iPhone 5S all colors 16 GB is around 31,000 THB
    iPhone 5C all colors 16 GB is around 28,000 THB

    i stay in Thailand and will wait for offical release on iPhone 5S by AIS, True and DTAC because they only can really support and take care the iPhone if you still have some probelems!

    so thik about this!

      I live in US now and have a Verizon iphone 5. I am looking at staying in Bangkok for about a year. Can I bring my phone there and have a local company put a nano sim card in it? I get 4g lte here what speeds in Thailand? What does it cost for unlimited internet for I phone if htat is even an option, What does it cost to call back to us?

      • October 19, 2013 at 3:12 pm

        US iPhones are a pain to convert, it may cost as much as 300 US so it’s not worth.
        Jailbreak is not an option in many cases. Sell your US phone and buy a new one in Thailand.
        Unlimited internet costs about 600 baht (20USD) depending on the promotion you choose.
        Thailand starts to use 4G but 3G is the norm, but internet does not always work well.
        If you want to call the US use Skype or another cheaper way than direct dialling.

        Hi i brought my Verizon 5s over and works with LTE on TrueMoveH for 40dollar unlimited. Easier than riding a bicycle.

        All Verizon 5s Iphones are unlocked and work on CDMA and GSM and cover LTE Band 5 (850MHz) which you willl need in THailand for LTE.

        Have fun
