Apple iPhone Xr - South African pricing

Pre-orders have finally begun for the most affordable handset in Apple's new line-up, the iPhone XR.

The iPhone XR comes in five colours: Black, white, yellow, coral and a special edition that comes in red. The 128GB storage model has been priced at Rs. 81,900, while the top-end 256GB storage variant comes in at Rs. 91,900 in the Indian market.

The iPhone XR will go on sale in more than 50 countries and territories including Singapore from Oct 26, Apple Singapore said in its news release on Wednesday.

While everyone is talking about how great and expensive the new iPhone XS and XS Max are, the silent spectator of it all is ready to steal the limelight.

If you're after a certain version of the iPhone XR, perhaps with an exact colour and memory combination, then you might want to get yours reserved before the pre-order rush starts.

The iPhone XR has the same software and the same powerful chip as the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max.

The body of the iPhone XR is sealed and precision-fitted with the aerospace-grade aluminium band that helps create an enclosure that's water resistant up to 1 metre for 30 minutes. Apple describes it as 'the most color-accurate LCD in the industry'. The glass panel on the back also enables wireless charging support.

A video by Tyler Stalman mentions a couple other strengths of the XR, including that its LCD display looks excellent, and that even though the device is technically heavier than the XS due to being larger, it actually feels lighter in the hand relative to what he expected. It features 6.1-inch liquid retina display with a resolution of 828 pixels by 1792 pixels at a PPI of 326 pixels per inch. 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. The iPhone XR also offers stereo speakers and supports dual SIM dual standby.

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.
