Design and Display
As compared to iPhone Xs, and Xs Max, Apple iPhone XR isn’t as attractive, pointing out its slim heavier bezels and its edges aren’t made out of the same premium-feeling materials. These are a few compromises in order to make it a low-cost smartphone. Not only this, with curved edges, a glass rear and two speakers grilles at the bottom making it feel noticeably chunkier compared to iPhone Xs and Xs Max handset. However, it certainly doesn’t feel that bad and you won’t be disappointed after getting your hands on one.
Onto iPhone XR screen, measuring a 6.1-inches LCD “Liquid Retina” with 18:9 aspects ratio – a cheaper compared to OLED Panels fitted to iPhone Xs and Xs Max. The phone in hands feels like a Plus-size handset but doesn’t feel unwieldy due to the fact the display stretches from edge to edge.
Camera and Battery
The iPhone XR comes with a single 12MP rear sensor instead of a dual camera system on iPhone Xs and Xs Max whereas a front comes installed with a TrueDepth camera for selfies as well as facial unlocking. The camera is being supported by enhanced Portrait Mode and Smart HDR, enabling users to capture high-end elements of images.
Battery-wise, an iPhone XR is expected to have a better battery life as its battery remains unknown in terms of mAh. Apple put a little less RAM in here alongside the company’s latest A12 Bionic Chipset – combining less power with a more efficient engine. The display is expected to be less power-hungry and that chunkier casing might sport a massive battery. Everything aside for a short second, Apple claims that an iPhone XR will last around 1.5 hours longer than iPhone 8 Plus.
Price and Availability
The iPhone XR is a little late as compared to iPhone Xs and Xs Max – both were announced on September 12 and will start landing on shelves a week later on September 21 and onward. The iPhone XR will be available for pre-order on October 19 and will ship worldwide on October 26.
Price-wise, iPhone XR will be available in three different storage tiers and price will vary accordingly. For an instant, Apple iPhone XR 64GB Price in Australia will be around AU$1046 and 128GB variant will set users back around AU$1116. 3rd variant with 256GB, however, goes for a whopping AU$1256.
