IPhone XR India Pre-Orders Begin, Sales Start From October 26

IPhone XR India Pre-Orders Begin, Sales Start From October 26

While everyone is talking about how great and expensive the new iPhone XS and XS Max are, the silent spectator of it all is ready to steal the limelight. After you check them out, be sure to let us know in the comments which iPhone XR model you're going to preorder, if you've made a decision to pick one up.

Pre-orders have finally begun for the most affordable handset in Apple's new line-up, the iPhone XR.

Apple iPhone XR is priced at Rs 76,900 for 64GB variant, which is not small sum but affordable when compared against the iPhone XS and XS Max. Nevertheless, the notched 6.1-inch IPS LCD bezel-less display found on the iPhone XR will most likely exhibit the same quality that iPhone LCD displays have been known for.

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.

The iPhone XR measures 150.90 x 75.70 x 8.30 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 194.00 grams. It has been a while since Apple has deviated from its usual array of colours for iPhones, and the iPhone XR will be available in black, white, yellow, blue, coral and (PRODUCT) RED colour options.

Apple is also offering Reserve and Pick Up for iPhone XR at their retail stores, beginning on launch day, which is October 26, 2018. Apple says the glass is the most durable ever on a smartphone. Improvements to the ISP, Neural Engine and improved software algorithms enable portrait photos with a handsome bokeh effect. New Depth Control allows users to adjust the depth of field both in real-time preview and post-capture to create portraits with a handsome bokeh effect.

The iPhone XR with 12MP rear camera and 7MP front sensor claims to have better low light performance. This setup supports FaceID for unlocking the phone.

One common message across multiple videos is that the iPhone XR doesn't feel at all like a budget phone.

The iPhone XR boasts the same internals as the XS series, but comes with just a single-lens camera on the back.
