It's the moment local iPhone fans have been waiting for. Apple's latest flagship device, the iPhone X, finally goes on sale today in Malaysia.

The iPhone X is officially priced at RM5,149 for the 64GB model and RM5,899 for the larger 256GB option.

Calling it "the future of the smartphone", the iPhone X (it's pronounced "ten" by the way, not "X") features a 5.8-inch OLED screen that boasts brighter and sharper colours. It's also the first iPhone to do away with the iconic home button.

Apple Premium Resellers across Malaysia held midnight launches for eager fans who couldn't wait any longer to get their hands on the device

Despite its steep price tag, long lines could be seen at various outlets, a sign of strong demand from Malaysians waiting for the company's 10th anniversary phone.

While some fans started lining up as early as 9pm yesterday, a young lady had apparently been queueing up in front of Celcom Blue Cube at Sunway Pyramid for the past four nights!

Celcom took to its Facebook page last night to announce that 23-year-old Tan Hui Sze had been lining up in front of the store since Monday, 20 November. She was the first one in the queue. 

"98 hours later, she is still here and in great spirits! The girl who waited in line for 4 nights is here at Blue Cube Iconic Sunway Pyramid," the caption of the post reads.

Her perseverance paid off as she only had to fork out RM10 to purchase the iPhone X!

Joining Tan was Imee Juiana Tajuddin, who was the first customer to pre-order a unit at Celcom's online store. Imee also paid RM10 for an iPhone X.
