IPhone XR Release Date And Cheaper Price Revealed At Apple Keynote 2018

IPhone XR Release Date And Cheaper Price Revealed At Apple Keynote 2018

"While it's now the cheapest new iPhone of the lot, the iPhone XR gets a large 6.1" edge to edge display that uses IPS instead of OLED.

For comparison, the iPhone XS Max is bigger even than the Galaxy Note 9, which spans 6.4 inches. Despite being all glass and steel, the iPhone XS Max isn't slippery at all. Apple says the camera along with smarter AI-based algorithms can deliver better imaging capabilities than the iPhone 8.

The Max is the Xs' bigger brother. While we still don't know what the R stands for (Regular, Rookie, Rad?), it's obvious this is the iPhone for Apple fans with a smaller budget, with a design that isn't quite as flashy, a single 12-megapixel camera and a 6.1in LCD display. Apple has used its A12 Bionic chipset, which means performance should be on a par with the more expensive, OLED phones too.

So mark your calendars, if you're ready to pay Apple's highest price point yet, the new phones will be out in Malta on September 28th. It comes equipped with a 12MP wide-angle camera with an all-new sensor and 1.4 million pixels (the same as in the iPhone XS and XS Max).

Other camera features include Portrait Lighting, Animoji, and Memoji. It supports Qi-standard wireless charging and fast charging as well - up to 50 per cent charge 30 minutes.


The iPhone XS will cost $1,649 and up, while the iPhone XS Max begins at $1,799, available in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB, and with the choice of space grey, silver, and a new gold finish.

As expected, Apple revealed several new iterations of the iPhone during its Keynote 2018 address.

And technology-lovers will only have a few days to wait before they can pre-order the latest incarnations of the world's most popular phone, with orders being taken from Sept. 14 and shipping for Saudi Arabia and the UAE starting on Sept. 21. iPhone addicts in Oman and Bahrain will have a week longer to wait, with the iPhones arriving in the two countries a week later on Sept. 28.

Apple's announced a new smartphone model on Wednesday, the iPhone XR. For the benefit of owning an iPhone with a 6.5-inch screen you will have a hard time to carry that around in the back pocket of your jeans. The XR will be available in three storage variants - 64GB, 128GB and 256GB, and in five colour variant - white, black, blue, yellow, coral and a (PRODUCT) RED edition as well. Apple WatchSeries 4 has a redesigned UI with new complications.

Apple aficionados in the Middle East will not have long to wait before they get their hands on what the company are calling the "most handsome and advanced" iPhones.
