6.1″ LCD iPhone Xr will join the iPhone Xs and Xs Max at Apple’s 2018 iPhone event on Wednesday

-

Apple is about to launch the new iPhones tomorrow. We already know that there will be three new iPhones at the Apple launch event. So, now we’ve got information naming schemes of the 2018 iPhone series lineup. The successor to the iPhone X will be iPhone Xs, with iPhone Xs Max to be the larger variant. The cheaper 6.1-inch model will be known as iPhone Xr.

Up to now, we were referring iPhone Xr as iPhone 9 or as the 6.1″ LCD iPhone. According to a famous analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone Xr will come at a starting price of $699 to $749. Besides, some sources expect the iPhone Xr to start from $849, though.

We expect this new variant to be cheaper with iPhone Xs like hardware specifications. That means we expect the iPhone Xr to have an A12 chip and a glass sandwich design. To cut down the costs further, we may see a 6.1-inch LCD display, a glass sandwich design along with an aluminum frame instead of stainless steel. We expect the iPhone XC to come in multiple colors as well. Besides, we may get 1GB less RAM than the other variants.

The new images show four new colors for the iPhone Xr. These will be the most colorful iPhones since the iPhone 5C. In comparison, the iPhone Xs and the iPhone Xs Max will come in just three color hues. The colors will add gold to the mix, alongside the Space Gray and silver options that we’ve got to see the last years iPhone X.

iPhone Xr will get official at the Apple’s event, but the actual sales will get live a few weeks later than its siblings. That may be done to create a hype or Apple is genuinely having minor complications, fitting backlights for the LCD screen. Apple may even delay the iPhone 9 in order to create the demand for the expensive iPhones in the very first place.
