  • Apple Suppliers Continue to Remain Cautious – Believe the iPhone XR Might Not Be a ‘Home Run’

Pricing aside, the Apple iPhone XR gives up the one important feature that has now become a hallmark of every modern flagship smartphone - the AMOLED display.

The last quarter of every year is reserved for iPhone launches.

From a wide range of colour options to bezel-less notched display and fastest Apple chipset, the iPhone XR is still in the big leagues when compared against the Android rivals. Although it comes under shrewd practice that you're anxious about the future, it is still too early to make out anything of this situation.

Bank analysts and some supply chain sources have expressed longstanding confidence in a strong season for sales of the iPhone XR, especially as the pricier iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have been drifting in the market.

So far, everyone's raving about the iPhone XR, even if it is lacking a few features.

The iPhone XR will be available for purchase in Israel on November 1, while the following countries will get the phone a day later: Armenia, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, South Korea, Macau, Maldives, Myanmar, Ukraine and Vietnam.

The iPhone XR will be available at the Apple authorised resellers from October 26 in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models in black, white, blue, yellow, coral and red colours, the company said in a statement on Thursday. Online, the iPhone XR is listed for pre-orders on Amazon, though Flipkart is yet to list it.

iPhone XR would go on sale in India from October 19 and would be in stores on October 26, starting at Rs 76,900 for the 64GB storage variant. In terms of savings, it's more or less the same as the iPhone XS above - the most affordable model is about RM400 less than getting it from Apple directly.

The iPhone XR comes with 6.1” LCD panel, one 12 MP camera on the back and 2,942 mAh battery. However, the iPhone XR is equipped with a single 12-megapixel f/1.8 aperture wide-angle lens rear-facing camera. It bears an all-glass design with an aluminium frame surrounding the perimeters.
