IPhone XR pre-orders start today

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

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.

Apple invited me to check out the iPhone XR for a brief test drive before preorders start tonight. Touted as the most affordable offering in the iPhone 2018 lineup, the iPhone XR offers an LCD display, a single rear camera, and multiple colour options differentiating it from the flagship iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

The XR has a 6.1inch edge-to-edge LCD display (rather than the more expensive OLED used in the other models) which Apple has called Liquid Retina.

While the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max come in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage variants, the iPhone XR comes in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage options.


The device, launched along with luxury iPhone XS and XS Max, houses A12 Bionic chip with next-generation "Neural Engine", which unlocks new experiences for immersive augmented reality (AR), games and photography.

And it also comes in more colours - six to be exact, reminiscent of the iPhone 5C from 2013: white, black, blue, yellow, coral and (Product) RED. Friday October 26 is the date to circle on your calendar in that regard, and that's when you'll start to see the iPhone XR on the physical shelves of phone and electronic retailers, too. While pre-order for the iPhone XR will begin tomorrow, the device will go on sale starting October 26 across Apple Authorised Resellers in India. Additionally, the iPhone XR is IP67 rated for dust and water resistance. Apple says the glass is the most durable ever on a smartphone.

The camera also packs a f/1.8 aperture wide-angle lens with an all-new sensor, delivering faster auto-focus, while larger and deeper pixels improve image fidelity and low-light performance on photos and videos.
