iPhone-5-official-thumb-4.pngIt was only revealed by Apple last night, but you can already buy the iPhone 5. Well, if you live in Australia at least. Aussie retailer Kogan have already begun selling the new handset, despite worldwide pre-orders through Apple themselves not kicking off until tomorrow.

Not only that, but Kogan are selling the unlocked handset at a considerable discount too. They’re undercutting Apple’s retail price by $100 (£64). It’s offering the 16GB model for $699, the 32GB model for $799 and the 64GB model at $899, with plans to ship the devices on 21 September; the same day as Apple’s shipping date.

“We’ve been working very hard here at Kogan to be the first retailer in the world to sell it, and can confirm that they are now available for our customers to order at unbelievable prices,” said Kogan.

If you’re hoping to grab an iPhone 5 early from Kogan, but live outside of Australia, you’re out of luck. The company do not offer international shipping on the iPhone 5.

Pricing for the iPhone 5 in the UK sits at £529 for the entry-level 16GB model direct from Apple and unlocked. iPhone 5 models with larger storage capacities have yet to have their pricing revealed, though a number of UK networks have already confirmed they will be selling the device.
