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.
GREY MARKET PRICES:
