Rather than packaging older internals into a new design (like iPhone 5c), it boasts numerous features that make the significantly more expensive iPhone XS and XS Max so special.
It will, however, come in a 128GB model - along with 64GB and 256GB options - which is said is the ideal storage option for a smartphone. In comparison, both the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max start at around Rs 1,00,000.
There's some good news for Yellow fanatics who are less fussy about which carrier they get service from: the yellow iPhone XR tied to AT&T, Sprint or Verizon is still in stock and slated for an October 26 delivery when you order from Apple. The iPhone XR should also be available on some e-commerce platforms as well, but details on that are still unknown at the moment.
Apple made the iPhone XR available for preorder starting at 12:01 a.m. On one side, analysts claim that this particular variant is going to be the most popular one out of three announced during Apple's keynote, while a different report stating that the tech giant's suppliers are actually cautious for the future. However, it uses an LCD panel and lacks 3D Touch support.
The phone will be available in blue, yellow, red, black, white and coral similar to the iPhone 5C in 2013. Now the spotlight turns to the iPhone XR. It gets a 6.1-inch LCD Liquid Retina HD display (1792x828). It comes powered by the all-new 7nm Apple A12 Bionic chip featuring a 4-core GPU, 6-core CPU, and a dedicated 8-core Neural Engine. She mentions how Portrait mode on the XR only works on human subjects due to the way the single-lens camera operates, and interestingly she also says that the two Stage Light effects in Portrait mode aren't available with the rear-facing camera.
For selfies, the iPhone XR sports a 7MP selfie camera with a f/2.2 aperture along with a TrueDepth camera for FaceID.
