IPhone XR hands-on: Colorful phones make a great first impression

Apple Suppliers Continue to Remain Cautious – Believe the iPhone XR Might Not Be a ‘Home Run’ Supply chain on edge with iPhone XR demand
Allan Lindsey | 19 October, 2018, 15:58

The caution could exist because of the weak demand and sale record of the already released iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. The iPhone XR will have to be activated in the October 26-28 period, too, on Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint.

Interested parties will be able to place their order for the new iPhone XR starting at 12:01 a.m. PST on October 19.

It features a Liquid Retina edge-to-edge display, which Apple calls the most advanced LCD display ever implemented in a smartphone.

This phone features plenty of new technology including a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina edge-to-edge display, wireless charging and new A12 Bionic processor which is now outperforming all of its Android rivals in speed tests.

The retailer has an agreement with FNB, whereby the XR can be bought with an FNB credit card for R499 a month over 37 months for the 64GB version, R535 a month for the 128GB version, and R610 a month for the 256GB version.

"The new iPhone XR has a gorgeous new aerospace-grade aluminium and glass enclosure that has IP67 protection from liquids and dust, long all-day battery life and comes in six lovely finishes".

Pricing aside, the Apple iPhone XR gives up the one important feature that has now become a hallmark of every modern flagship smartphone - the AMOLED display.

The iPhone XR will be available for purchase in Israel on November 1, while the following countries will get the phone a day later: Armenia, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, South Korea, Macau, Maldives, Myanmar, Ukraine and Vietnam. The device comes with an Aluminum frame and glass back body. However, those who wish to own an iPhone without applying for a bank loan can set the ball rolling by pre-ordering the iPhone XR today.

Apple has marketed the iPhone Xr as the "more affordable" iPhone for 2018.

As far as the cameras are concerned, the Apple iPhone XR packs a 12-megapixel (f/1.8) primary camera on the rear and a 7-megapixel front shooter for selfies.
