IPhone XR India Pre-Orders Begin, Sales Start From October 26

Introduced more than a month ago, the iPhone Xr pre-orders just went live. The lowest priced iPhone of this generation will be available for pre-order starting today (that is, October 19) through brick-and-mortar Apple stores as well as directly from Apple's own official Indian online store.

The iPhone XR falls well below the iPhone XS and XS Max because it brings an LCD display rather than OLED.

The iPhone XR is a mid-range 6.1-inch handset that sports numerous features of its OLED counterparts, including Face ID, an edge-to-edge display, wireless charging, and Apple's A12 Bionic chip.

"IPhone XR makes it possible for even more people to have the great experience of the latest iPhone X technology, in handsome new designs, at a more affordable price".

It costs R6,000 less than the 64GB iPhone XS, and R8,000 less than the iPhone XS Max. All capacities of the coral and Product Red versions of the iPhone XR for T-Mobile are showing delivery delays of one to two weeks, while the 128GB and 256GB versions of the blue model are also delayed one to two weeks.

That said, you still have to exercise some amount of patience, as shipping doesn't start for one more week.

It will still be some time before you can actually get your hands on the device, though; the iPhone XR won't hit the shelves until October 26.

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

In the camera department, the iPhone XR sports a single rear 12-megapixel camera sensor with a 6P lens, f/1.8 aperture, OIS, Focus Pixels, and a quad-LED True Tone flash. The phone is powered by Apple's latest six-core A12 Bionic SoC, coupled with a quad-core GPU, 3GB of RAM, and 64GB/ 128GB/ 256GB of inbuilt storage.

Contract pricing will be revealed tomorrow but expect this device to set you back around £40 per month.

If you're reading this and you want an iPhone XR, we recommend that you get your preorder in as soon as possible.
