iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are here in Singapore. As per every iPhone launch in the recent years, Singtel has held the event at Marina Bay Sands (MBS).
If you happened to be on social media, you might already see some of your friends posting pictures of them.
This time, it is interesting because Apple has launched 3 iPhones and only 2 have arrived. The hottest one, the iPhone X, will only be here from November. I am sure Singtel will host such an event for the iPhone X (my opinion).
Check out the picture above. They are the first 10 Singtel customers to get hold of the iPhone 8 or 8 Plus. And here is the Media Release.

Singapore, 22 September 2017– Singtel this morning launched the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus with great fanfare at its exclusive event at Marina Bay Sands Exhibition Hall C. Mr Eng Guan Theng, 30, was the first in line at 6am, waiting eagerly to purchase two iPhone Plus phones, one for himself and the other for his mother.
A Singtel customer since 2008, Mr Eng’s first iPhone was the iPhone 3G. “I’m very excited to be the first Singtel customer in Singapore to get the new iPhone 8 Plus. I got one in Space Grey and another in Gold – I’ll let mom choose which colour she wants!”
Ms Gan Siok Hoon, Vice President, Retail & Channel Sales, Consumer Singapore, Singtel, said, “With our recent network upgrade to offer 500Mbps speeds and the launch of our new Combo and DATA X INFINITY plans, we are pleased to offer our customers the ultimate iPhone 8, 8 Plus experience in Singapore.”
An annual highlight on Singtel’s calendar, iPhone launches are always an exciting time for the telco. This year’s two-day event features 40 sales counters, and an entertainment, connectivity and family zone where customers can explore services such as Singtel Circle, Singtel Dash and MobileSwop Unlimited. Customers will also be entertained with live streaming of Singtel TV while they wait for their appointments.
Singtel recently unveiled Singapore’s first truly unlimited mobile experience featuring unlimited voice, SMS and data, with the launch of new Combo plans and data add-on, DATA X INFINITY. It also offers Singapore’s fastest and widest mobile network at 500Mbps speeds.
