After a year of rumors and expectations, Apple has finally come out with its new version of iPhone and it is not iPhone 9 like most speculated but the more affordable iPhone XR. While a slight diversion from Apple’s usual naming scheme, the new iPhone XR clearly has a lot to offer and if you’re an iPhone user it may well be the best choice for your needs.
Apple iPhone XR will be available for pre-orders in India from tomorrow and will be available in retail stores on October 26 in more than 50 major markets including India. The price of IPhone XR in India starts from RS 76,900 and it is available in different storage options like 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB and it also has six different color options: black, white, blue, yellow, coral and red.
The iPhone XR looks a lot like the iPhone X, featuring an edge-to-edge display and a ‘notch’ at the top of the screen that houses the facial recognition sensors along with a speaker and front camera. That means, as expected, there’s no Home button. The display is 6.1 inches LCD display and it has a resolution of 1792 x 828.
It delivers all day battery life, lasting up to an hour and a half longer than iPhone 8 Plus. The camera on the iPhone XR comes in at 12-megapixels with an aperture of f/1.8, and has support for Portrait Mode through machine learning — not through the dual-sensor camera like on other iPhones. We’ll have to wait and see just how high quality that Portrait Mode is. On the front, the iPhone XR features the same TrueDepth camera system as the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, meaning you get the same Face ID features as other new iPhone models.
