IPhone XR revealed: notched LCD, Face ID, and advanced single camera

TODO alt text Apple expected to unveil bigger, pricier iPhone on Wednesday
Emmett Howard | 15 September, 2018, 14:41

The XS and XS Max have dual 12-megapixel rear cameras and a dual 7-megapixel selfie camera - just like the iPhone X.

You can also now chose the amount of bokeh after you've taken the photo.

The iPhone XR will have three storage options: 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. The pricing of the iPhone XR starts from United States dollars 749 and will be available for pre-order starting from October 12, while the sale begins on October 26.

"The 5.8in iPhone XS is the direct successor to last year's iPhone X, while the Max model, which offers the same footprint as Apple's previous 5.5in smartphones despite its larger 6.5in OLED display, essentially replaces Apple's now-defunct Plus-branded models", reported The Inquirer. Bearing 5.8 inches Super Retina OLED display, iPhone Xs looks similar to iPhone X featuring the same edge-to-edge display and the true depth sensor.

The iPhone Xs and Xs Max will be available in 64-GB, 256-GB, and 512-GB versions.

"iPhone Xs is packed with next-generation technologies and is a huge step forward for the future of the smartphone".

Pricing. Taking the price of its flagship iPhone to almost $1,000 past year helped Apple squeeze more revenue out of the device even though unit sales remained flat. The names are iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR. The Series 4 comes with a new digital crown that offers haptic feedback, and Apple moved the mic to the other side of the watch from the speaker to reduce echo and make phone calls clearer. You will be able to buy the new Apple Watch in gold stainless steel along with silver and space black stainless steel models. Wider stereo playback creates a more immersive soundstage. He opened by saying the iPhones have "new formulation of glass that is the most durable ever on a smartphone".

The iPhone Xr is also splash and water resistant, with a rating of IP67, and will also come in six new finishes: white, black, blue, yellow, coral and the exclusive (PRODUCT) RED edition, which helps raise awareness and inspire action to fight HIV/AIDS. Image processing on the upgraded A12 processor should improve snaps as well, according to Apple.

Bengals' A.J. Green scores three TDs - in 17 minutes
The Ravens dominated in first downs (26 to 10), total yards (369-153), passing yards (252 to 70), and yards per play (5.0 to 2.5). It's hard not to wonder where the Cincinnati Bengals offense and quarterback Andy Dalton would be without star wide receiver A.J.

Carolina coast braces for 'Mike Tyson punch' from hurricane
It said the hurricane was about 520 miles (820km) southeast of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina , on Wednesday. A tropical storm warning is in effect for north of Duck, NC, to the North Carolina/Virginia border.

One of the other downgrades the XR comes with is a lower overall maximum storage capacity. The GPU is up to 50 percent faster than the GPU on the A11 Bionic.

Apple's new products aside, it's worth noting that Apple today seemingly axed a number of existing iPhones from its product lineup.

The neural engine works up to 9 times faster on Core ML operations and uses less than 1/10 the energy.

A breakthrough new 12MP dual camera system with 2x optical zoom and dual optical image stabilisation introduce a new era of iPhone photography.

And like the XS and XS MAX, the XR features Smart HDR, which preserves better highlight and shadow details across photos. To reach customers not willing to pay that much, Apple will have the iPhone XR. There's an improved front-facing camera, too, with a 7MP sensor that's faster and an f/2.2 aperture.

Depth Control in action. If it's the sheer size that has kept you away from joining the "Plus club", you will find that the iPhone XR to be less intimidating. That being said, it still shoots up to 4K at 60 frames per second and is optically stabilized. For videos, you get stereo sound recording, which is great.

Touch ID is dead, long live Face ID.
