Apple today announced iPhone XR, in an all-screen glass and aluminum design with the most advanced LCD featuring a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display will be able to pre-order beginning October 19 and availability beginning October 26 in India.
iPhone XR brings the powerful A12 bionic chip with next-generation neural engine, the TrueDepth camera system that creates dramatic portraits using a single camera lens. iPhone XR comes in six new finishes – white, black, blue, yellow, coral and red.
Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing said, “The new iPhone XR has a gorgeous new aerospace-grade aluminum and glass enclosure that has IP67 protection from liquids and dust, long all-day battery life and comes in six beautiful finishes. iPhone XR makes it possible for even more people to have the great experience of the latest iPhone X technology, in beautiful new designs, at a more affordable price.”
The Apple-designed A12 Bionic, the smartest and most powerful chip in a smartphone, features the first 7-nanometer chip ever in a smartphone that delivers industry-leading performance in a more power-efficient design. Even with all this power, iPhone XR lasts up to an hour and a half longer than iPhone 8 Plus.
iPhone XR features a 12-megapixel f/1.8 aperture wide-angle lens with an all-new sensor, delivering faster auto-focus, while larger and deeper pixels improve image fidelity and low-light performance on photos and videos. Improvements to the ISP, neural engine and improved software algorithms enable portrait photos with a beautiful bokeh effect. Smart HDR brings better highlight and shadow detail across photos.
iPhone XR uses LTE Advanced for fast download speeds and introduces Dual SIM through the use of a nano-SIM and digital eSIM.
iPhone XR comes with iOS 12, the world’s most advanced mobile operating system. iOS 12 changes the way iOS users see the world using augmented reality, helps people rediscover and share photos, and makes communications more expressive and fun with new Animoji and Memoji.
iPhone XR will be available in 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB models in white, black, blue, yellow, coral and red starting at $749 from apple.com and Apple Stores, and is also available through Apple Authorized Resellers and select carriers (prices may vary).
