iPhone XR Specifications and Price


Rumoured as the cheapest of the bunch before the actual launch, the iPhone XR is actually the most afforfable. Taking a bit away from what you have on the iPhome XS and iPhone XS Max so as to cut price, the smartphone still feels everybit like the iPhone X of last year. Some of the lay off includes a single rear camera ,less RAM, lesser resolution and a switch from.OLED to LCD. Nonetheless, the smartphone still carries the same flagship SoC as the other models.

iPhone XR Key Specs and Features

  • 6.1-inch, IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 828 x 1792 pixels (326 ppi)
  • iOS 12
  • Octa-core Apple Bionic 12 CPU with 3GB RAM
  • 64GB/128GB/256GB built-in storage, no support for expansion
  • 12MP rear camera and a 7MP front camera
  • 4G LTE
  • Face ID
  • IP68 water and dust proof
  • Non removable Li-ion battery

Design and Display

To the business of how it looks, the smartphone looks everybit like a flagship with thick surrounding bezels and the same mettalic frame. However, the bezels around the screen are a bit thicker and there is the fact that it is a bit chunkier. Also, it is water and dust proof with an IP67 certification like last year’s iPhone X. This means it can stay in water up to 1m for 30mins unlike the IP68 label on the iPhone XS and XS Max. It is covered by scratch resistant glass and with oleophobic coating to prevent smudges.
 
A major difference can be noticed in the change from OLED to LCD to cut cost and a further reduction in resolution too. In comparison to the iPhone XS, it is a bigger and a lesser one than the iPhone XS Max. Sporting the characteristical notch, the display has a size of 6.1-inch and a resolution of 828 x 1792 pixels. There is no 3D Touch display but you’ll still be getting the True-tone display on the smartphone.

Battery and Camera

Nothing yet on the battery capacity on the smartphone but you should expect the conventional a day usage on it. Since it’s using the same set of chipset as the others, you can expect a typical efficient power consumption on it. In addition, you still get to enjoy fast charge and Qi wireless charging is also supported.
One major change and a quite obviously one you’ve got here is the absence of the extra telephoto camera. This means no more 2x lossless zoom but it still manages to take imoressive portrait shots and you can even adjust the bokeh effect. It comes with the single f/1.8 aperture 12MP camera and the Truedepth 7MP front camera stays the same.

Hardware and Software

To be candid, the iPhone XR is a decent offering considering it is going to be featuring the latest Neural engine as the more premium models. The Bionic 12 processor is the real deal when it comes to flagship prowess. Even if the RAM size has been reduced to 3GB on the smartphone, you’d still expect a stellar performance. Unfortunately, the 512GB storage option is not available on the iPhone XR but you will still be getting 64GB, 128GB and 256GB storage space alternative. The latest iOS 12 is on board too  alongside Apple Pay, Siri assistant and AI optimization.

iPhone XR Pricing and Availability

Pre-order can be made come October 19 but it will go on sale on October 26 in select stores. The 64GB variant of the smartphone costs $749 (271, 000 Naira( while the 128GB model will go for $799 (290, 000 Naira) and the 256GB model for $899 (325, 000 Naira).
