Apple iPhone XR: Specifications, features
Apple had launched iPhone XR along with the iPhone XS series last month. iPhone XS and XS Max are available in India with a starting price of ₹99,900. Apple is launching the iPhone XR after a month since the release of the iPhone XS. The delay is said to be due to software-related challenges Apple is facing on the Liquid Retina Display of the iPhone XR.
Unlike the OLED display on the iPhone XS series, iPhone XR has a cheaper 6.1-inch LCD display with a notch. It is powered by Apple's A12 Bionic chip and comes with Face ID. This iPhone doesn't have 3D Touch but a feature Apple calls 'haptic touch'.
In the photography department, iPhone XR sports a 12-megapixel wide-angle single rear camera with OIS, f/1.8 aperture and True Tone flash. Up front there's a 7-megapixel TrueDepth camera with f/2.2 aperture and Retina Flash. iPhone XR comes with IP67 rating for water and dust resistance.
Connectivity options on the iPhone XR include 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and Wi-Fi. It also supports dual-SIM where the secondary slot is an eSIM.
