Apple iPhone Xr is the last iPhone that Apple announced today.The iPhone shares a lot of its major features from the Apple iPhone Xs and the Apple iPhone Xs Plus. This is a cheaper 2018 iPhone model with a tall LCD screen. The tall 19.5:9 display has a surface area slightly larger than the iPhone 8 Plus, with a slightly smaller footprint.
Apple iPhone Xr is made of an areo-gradded Aluminuim 7000 series with splash of six new colors to its beauty. The screen is edge to edge making it most ever beautiful smartphone Apple has ever made. The smartphone has been made available in six new colors that is white, Blue, Yellow, Coral, Black and Product Red.
The screen on the iPhone Xr is a new “Liquid Retina” display that maintains the 326ppi pixel density of the iPhone X a lower 822 x 1,1792px resolution. The handset now covered with an unkown version of the worlds toughest glass Apple has ever produced. This new LCD panel maintains same Pixel density as the iPhone 8 Plus. For smoother operation, the screen’s touch sensing layer runs at 120Hz (but the UI still renders at 60fps) and has wider color gamut of its AMOLED-based siblings.
There’s another holdout from previous generations – the single camera – making it more like an iPhone 8 successor. In terms of size Apple compares the iPhone Xr size-wise with the 8 Plus.
That single camera module on iPhone Xr is same as of the iPhone XS camera. It has the larger 1.4µm pixels and all the advanced shooting techniques (Smart HDR, adjustable bokeh). The iPhone Xr has the same updated Bokeh feature that allows you to adjust the depth of field after a photo has been taken. The camera app allows to change the bokeh with aperture ranging f1.4-f16.
The A12 Bionic chip combines ISP and Neural engine to bring a new Smart HDR feature. It starts with zero shutter lag, the camera captures a 4 frame buffer, than It captures interframes and combine all of these wuth plus a long exposure, to create a single photo with awesome dynamic range.
With the release of iPhone Xr we are confirmed on one thing, and that is the death of Touch ID finerprit reader. Apple is now in favour of Face ID scanner, so its 2018 offerings are consistent on that count. Face ID for biometric protection is present with neural networks, and the new has faster secure enclave and faster faster algorithms to unlock the iPhones.
The Apple iPhone Xr has the same A12 Bionic chip from the iPhone Xr and the iPhone Xr Max. It supports the same improved AR vision with AR kit 2 and has the same neural engine that can perform 5 trillion operations per second.
To remind you, the Apple A12 bionic SoC is the most powerfull and efficient chipset in the world. It is a 6 core cpu with 2 performance cores that are upto 15% faster and 40 persent more power efficient. The 4 new power-efficient cores are now 50% more power efficient. Now the Apps open 30% faster with this new A12 Bionic chip.
Apple is again playing a safe game here by comparing iPhone Xr battery with the last generation iPhone 8 Plus and claims the battery life to be one and half hour more battery life than the same.
Finally Apple is introducing the same new Dual Sim Dual Standby feature on the new iPhone Xr. For the west countries, including India,iPhone Xr has an embedded SIM (eSIM) in addition to the single SIM slot to offer dual SIM functionality.
