So, I would say there will be at least 2 models available to buyers in Malaysia.

It's even possible that the WiFi and GPS would still be built in to simplify the manufacturing process, but disabled in firmware beyond the reach of anyone but Canon.

That doesn't explain why the non WiFi version is 5 grams lighter, my guess is the cost of the chips exceeds the cost of having two different production lines.
