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.

Those looking to buy the new iPhone XR can make a pre-order from 3.01pm on Friday (Oct 19), Apple Singapore has announced.

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

The device's 6.1-inch display features a resolution of 1,792 x 828 and supports Tap to Wake functionality.

It will, however, come in a 128GB model - along with 64GB and 256GB options - which is said is the ideal storage option for a smartphone.

At the back is a single lens camera with a 12MP sensor which is similar to the wide-angle camera as the one found on iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

The aluminium handset is available in white, blue, black, coral, and yellow, along with a special Product Red version. Improvements to the ISP, Neural Engine and improved software algorithms enable portrait photos with a attractive bokeh effect. Almost six weeks after Apple unveiled its latest flagship phone to the world at Cupertino back in September, the day has finally arrived when you can stake your claim for an iPhone XR.

New Depth Control allows users to adjust the depth of field both in real-time preview and post-capture to create portraits with a lovely bokeh effect.

The iPhone XR runs the A12 Bionic chipset under the hood with the next-generation neural engine.
