How to book iPhone XR - cheaper alternative to iPhone XS, XS Max

Apple Suppliers Continue to Remain Cautious – Believe the iPhone XR Might Not Be a ‘Home Run’

Analyst Details Apple’s 2019 iPhone Lineup

In a note to investors, Kuo also said Apple would continue to offer 5.8 and 6.5-inch OLED iPhones in 2019, along with one 6.1-inch LCD model. Priced at Rs 76,900, iPhone XR sales will start on October 26 in more than 50 countries including India. The cheapest iPhone that was launched this year, iPhone XR, managed to remain under the spotlight with its low pricing - serving an opportunity to upgrade for those who were critical of iPhone XS-series pricing. It's not all bad news though: one camera advantage of the XR over the XS is that you don't need to back up as far when taking Portrait photos since there's only one lens being used, and all depth recognition is being done via software rather than the dual-lens hardware. Of course, given that we are 10-months away from an announcement, this is still subject to change.

Of course, the price is the main factor here: the iPhone XR will cost Dh3,179, Dh3,389 and Dh3,809 for their respective incrementing capacities.

Moving into 2019, we can hope to see Apple pushing the boundaries again, and releasing devices which really give us the sense that the iPhone-maker is trying to continue pushing the envelope. It'll be available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage options as well as black, blue, yellow, white, coral, and red color options. It bears an all-glass design with an aluminium frame surrounding the perimeters.

In terms of size, the iPhone XR slots between the iPhone XS and XS Max. Additionally, the iPhone XR is IP67 rated for dust and water resistance.

It features a Liquid Retina edge-to-edge display, which Apple calls the most advanced LCD display ever implemented in a smartphone.

The iPhone XR sports a 6.1-inch screen and will be available with three storage capacity options: 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. The iPhone XR also supports Face ID and will ship with iOS 12.
