Mobile confirms iPhone XR pricing ahead of pre-orders

The iPhone XR pre-bookings listing is now live on IndiaiStore, the official offline partner for Apple in India.

Apple has posted its two new iPhone XR ads to YouTube to promote the device on preorder day.

Several weeks after the iPhone XS and XS Max went on sale, we're finally getting closer to the release of the iPhone XR. The iPhone XR should also be available on some e-commerce platforms as well, but details on that are still unknown at the moment.

The Apple iPhone XR is powered by hexa-core processor and it packs 64GB of internal storage that can not be expanded.

On to the iPhone XS Max, we're looking at prices of RM4991, RM5591 and RM6491 for the 64GB, 256GB and 512GB versions, respectively.

"Spectrum" doesn't really tell us that, serving instead to showcase the many bright and attractive color options the iPhone XR is available in. Alternatively, Walmart is also offering $100 off an iPhone XR with an installment billing agreement for AT&T, Verizon and Sprint for those customers who buy a device in-store starting October 26. The 128GB variant will be sold for Rs 81,900, whereas the 256GB variant will retail for Rs 91,900.

Google Pixel 3 vs Pixel 3 XL: battery life
Both, however, share the same stock version of Android 9 Pie , a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, and 4GB RAM. The Pixel 2 had a Samsung display and the larger Pixel 2 XL had an screen made by LG.

The body of the iPhone XR is sealed and precision-fitted with the aerospace-grade aluminium band that helps create an enclosure that's water resistant up to 1 metre for 30 minutes. It features 6.1-inch liquid retina display with a resolution of 828 pixels by 1792 pixels at a PPI of 326 pixels per inch.

It also mentions the A12 Bionic chip - the same chip that powers the iPhone XS and XS Max.

Preorders for the iPhone XR opens on iStore's website on Friday.

It uses a single 12mp camera, but will be able to do Portrait Mode thanks to specially designed software. I especially appreciated getting a good view of the colors of each aluminum band that wraps the phone; I'm a big fan of the Coral option for the glass back, but that color's aluminum band is more orange than I'd prefer, which is good to know.

For selfies, the iPhone XR sports a 7MP selfie camera with a f/2.2 aperture along with a TrueDepth camera for FaceID.
