Hong Kong and Singapore are the countries to be included in the first batch of iPhone 5 release this September 21 and these countries are the only ones who sell factory unlocked units among Asian countries. There are no prices yet posted on Apple Store Hong Kong site so I headed to Apple Store Singapore to check. Here are the prices without GST.
Conversion rate at $SG1 = Php33.90 (Singaporean dollars converted to Philippine pesos)
- 16GB – Php 32,140
- 32GB – Php 36,886
- 64GB – Php 41,972
I suspect an October release of the iPhone 5 here in the Philippines because both Globe and Smart made some teaser on their websites.
