iPhone XR features 6.1-inch display and six color options



Rounding out Apple’s announcements today is the iPhone XR.

This new iPhone XR is positioned as the lower-cost alternative to the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. For example, it swaps the OLED screens found on those models for an LCD screen. A 6.1-inch Liquid Retina LCD screen with a resolution of 1792×828, to be specific. It does get many of the same features as its flagship siblings, though, including Tap to Wake and True Tone. There’s no 3D Touch here, but there is a Haptic Touch feature for pressing on the home screen to quickly launch your flashlight or camera.

Apple has included its new A12 Bionic processor inside the iPhone XR, too. It’s got a 6-core CPU with two high-performance cores and four efficiency cores, a 4-core GPU that’s up to 50 percent faster, and an 8-core Neural Engine. The iPhone XR gets faster Face ID, too, thanks to software optimizations and a faster secure enclave.


Around back is one of the other major changes from the iPhone XS to the iPhone XR. The iPhone XR packs a single 12MP wide angle camera, but it’s the same sensor as the one on the iPhone XS. That means that it’s got OIS, an f/1.8 aperture, Smart HDR, and better low-light performance. You get Depth Control, too, letting you adjust the depth of focus on your photos after they’ve been taken.

Other notable features of the iPhone XR include IP67 water and dust resistance, an anodized aluminum band, and a glass front and back. Apple also touts the battery life on the iPhone XR as giving you 90 minutes more battery life than the iPhone 8 Plus.


When it comes to cellular connectivity, the iPhone XR will offer Dual SIM support in the form of one eSIM and one physical SIM, with Dual SIM officially coming in a software update this fall. LTE Advanced connectivity is in there as well. And like the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, T-Mobile has confirmed that the iPhone XR includes support for its 600MHz LTE connectivity.┬áHere’s the full list of LTE bands supported by the iPhone Xr: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 29, 30, 32, 34, 38, 39, 40, 41, 66, and 71.

The iPhone XR will be available for pre-order beginning October 19th and will ship on October 26th. It’ll be available in six colors: white, black, blue, yellow, coral, and red. Pricing will start at $749 for the 64GB version and go up to $799 for the 128GB version and $899 for the top-end 256GB model. T-Mobile has confirmed that it’ll carry the iPhone XR on October 19th, but no EIP or JOD pricing has been announced yet.

    Am I correct that all the new iPhones will be bigger then the current iPhones? The Xs the smallest is 5.8 inch screen which is still bigger then iPhone 8 Plus? My wife thinks she will keep her iPhone 8 cos any screen bigger then her phone. Is too big for her

    • theicehog

      The SCREENS are larger, not the body of the phone. The iPhone 8 was almost the exact same body as the X… The XS will be the same size as the X. The XS Max is roughly the same body size as the 8 plus but because the screens stretch from end to end the screen size is bigger.

    • Rene Shabastari

      IPhone X/Xs will probably be fine but I agree the rest are too big.
      I feel they might release an iPhone SE in a year or two with the iPhone 6/7/8 body like they did with the last SE for 5/5s body

  • Iphart

    Stupid notch on all of them.

  • Jerry Rich

    I’m going to Samsung. No notch for me!

  • Phil7474

    I’m sticking with my S9 Plus until the S10 comes out. I’m not with the notch.

    I’m an Android guy but wife is into iPhone so I follow this stuff. I like what they did with the XR and the size of it w/out a huge jump in the size of the body of the phone but leaving out 3D touch makes no sense, “haptic touch” is what they’re saying but my daughter’s previous phone the SE didn’t have 3D touch and that sucks…no 3D touch on the XR might be a deal breaker for some. Wife has the 8 Plus so no reason really for her to upgrade at this time the only real upgrade would be to the Xs Max she’d get 1″ more of screen at the same body size of the 8 Plus which would be cool but for $1,100…pass!

    • Mickey T

      my wife has the 7 and the only phone left in their lineup near that size is the iphone XS. Hopefully they’ll have some deals on the Iphone X

      • Ty Christensen

        Yep, the X and Xs are pretty much the same size as the 7 and 8. I think we’ll see some good deals on the X now for sure.
