The new affordable iPhone XR by Apple with Dual SIM, A12 Bionic Chip & Liquid Retina LCD does not seem affordable at Rs.76,900
The time has come, finally, Apple has launched their greatest iPhones last night with a huge price tag. The three new iPhones are quite elegant and look good also they have been high priced especially when compared to the Indian market.
Much like the previous year, there will be a low-end iPhone with the purpose to make it affordable to a wide range of audience. So, the new iPhone XR, which was already rumored previously, has been named as the budget model of the latest iPhone series.
The iPhone XR looks almost similar as we expected from leaks, with thicker bezels, a notch on top and with a single rear camera. Apple has made it clear that though this model will be a low budget one but it will have almost all the similar specs and features available for iPhone XS and XS Max.

- Primary Camera: 12MP wide-angle (f/1.8), with OIS, Quad-LED true-tone flash
- Secondary Camera: 7MP (f/2.2)
- Operating System: iOS 12
- IP Rating: IP67

iPhone XR: Classy yet not that affordable
The iPhone XR sports a 6.1-inch “Liquid Retina” LCD display, which the company claims to be the most vivid LCD display ever. Coming to the design, it features some huge black bezels, and sits inside a 7-Series aluminum body.
The phone is powered by Apple’s signature A12 Bionic chipset that is based on 7nm chipset. This is the fastest ever mobile processor made by Apple. The chipset comes with six CPU cores, a quad-core GPU and is built on Fusion architecture.
The camera department here might sadden you because it features a single 12MP rear camera. It has got the same sensor as on the iPhone XS and XS Max. But, Apple has promised that the smartphone’s single lens will be enough to capture some great portrait shots with the help of software & hardware optimizations.
Also, there’s the same 7MP selfie camera on board, with bokeh mode and AI features, as seen on the other models. First time Apple has given the option of dual SIM option on an iPhone keeping in mind of the global market.
Well, the exact amount of battery has not been disclosed by Apple, but it states that this iPhone XR will give 1 and half hour more battery than the previous iPhone 8.
Price & Availability
According to Apple’s official press release the smartphone costs $749, which when converted, accounts to Rs.53,900. But according to Apple’s actual pricing, the iPhone XR in India will have a starting price of Rs 76,900. The iPhone XR will be up for pre-order in India from October 19th next month. Shipping of the product starts from October 26th.
The smartphone will be available in six different color variants: white, black, blue, yellow, coral, and PRODUCT(RED).
Well, the iPhone XR seems promising, classy and kind of a new innovation intended for masses. But, at a huge price of Rs.76,900, how much impact will it create in the Indian market is certainly not sure.
