The Apple iPhone XR is for sure the last of its kind, as it still came with an LCD screen. But the screen is quite taller – a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, so you are entitled to more surface area than an iPhone 8 Plus, even when you account for the notch. Let me show you some of the Apple iPhone XR key features, specifications, price,s and release date.
Apple iPhone XR Features
Apple has a new name for the display the Apple iPhone XR came with – Liquid Retina. Putting the name aside, the pixel density is the same as the iPhone 8 Retina display (326ppi), the resolution is 822 x 11792 pixels (which is below 1080p). This LCD panel did gain the 120Hz touch sensing and wider color gamut of its AMOLED-based siblings.
The Apple iPhone XR came with a single camera, which is essentially the main module of the XS camera. It has the larger 1.4µm pixels and all the advanced shooting techniques (Smart HDR, adjustable bokeh) that the Apple A12 Bionic chipset enables. Yup, this one uses the same chipset as the iPhones that cost $250 more.
Still, with the Apple iPhone XR, the manufacturer did ditch the Touch ID fingerprint reader in favor of the Face ID scanner, so Apple’s 2018 iPhones are consistent on that count. To be precise, all three iPhones use the same new True Depth camera for Face ID.
The Apple iPhone XR is the more budget-conscious model, so its highest storage capacity is 256GB, though the base is the same 64GB as the Apple iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max. It has a 128GB middle storage option as well. The iPhone XR evokes memories of the 5c with its boldly-colored exterior. Apple is offering Blue, Yellow, Coral, Black, and Product Red.
Apple iPhone XR Price and Release Date
The Apple iPhone XR price for the 64GB base storage version is $750 in the United States, £749 in the United Kingdom, and €849 across Europe. Pre-order of the iPhone XR starts on October 19, 2018, and shipment will commence on October 26, 2018.
