Cebu City, Philippines - Orlando B. Vea,Smart Communications chief wireless adviser, said that Filipinos may get their hands on Apple Inc.’s upcoming iPhone, expected to be launched next week, much sooner than expected.
“Hopefully, we can be in the early batches. We can’t get that information from Apple yet, but we’re working on it,” Vea told reporters this week. “Hopefully, we will be one of the first in Asia,” Vea said.
Smart Communications was negotiating with the Cupertino-based consumer electronics giant to include the Philippines in the second batch of countries to officially get the latest model of the popular smartphone.
The next iPhone model, expected to be named either iPhone 5 or simply “the New iPhone,” will likely be launched next Wednesday. The device is expected to be slightly bigger than the existing iPhone model, and will likely introduce 4G high-speed Internet connectivity as its key feature.
Meanwhile, Apple iPhone 4S is one of the best-selling high-end smartphones which Smart communications has ever offered to its subscribers.
Smart’s rival Globe Telecom enjoyed exclusivity over all previous iPhone models until Smart communications carried the the first iPhone model, iPhone 4s, which was launched in December 2011—three months after it was unveiled by Apple CEO Tim Cook at the company’s California headquarters.
The Philippines was included in the fifth batch of countries to receive the iPhone 4S, together with Brazil, Russia, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan and the United Arab Emirates, among others. Singapore was the only country in the second batch, while Hong Kong, South Korea and India were in the third and fourth batches.
Japan was the only country in the region to be included in the first batch of countries for the iPhone 4S.
