According to the company, the popular smartphone is now available in Bahrain, Brazil, Chile, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Malaysia, Morocco, Peru, the Philippines, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, and Vietnam.
The pricing for the devices is ridiculous in some of the nations, as expected, topping out at $1400 USD in Brazil for the starter 16GB models. In Russia, the 16GB models start at $1100 and top out at $1350 for the 64GB models. These are, of course, currency conversions and subject to some fluctuation.
In most of the other nations, prices were just about $50 more than in the U.S., where unsubsidized devices sell for $649/$749/$849.
