There were rumors about Apple working on a phone that will be available at a more affordable price. Although the new iPhone Xr is definitely not a mid-range phone, it is cheaper than the latest iPhone Xs or the older iPhone X. To find out exactly how cheap it is and the exact Apple iPhone Xr South Africa price, continue reading.
Although the iPhone Xr comes with the same near bezel-less display with a notch on top of the screen, it’s easy to identify this phone from the other iPhone X phones because of it’s slightly different build quality and color options. The edge-to-edge display is there with a 6.1-inch LCD display which is slightly disappointing as its more expensive siblings are packing OLED display. This 6.1-inch screen will be showing a lower 1792 x 828 pixels resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 324ppi of pixel density. Unlike the iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max, this phone won’t include 3D Touch. However, all the Face ID technologies including Dot Projector and Infrared Camera will be there. Right after the Apple iPhone Xr release date South Africa, you can find this phone in coral, white, blue, black, yellow and RED finishes.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the cheaper iPhone Xr won’t be packing dual cameras. However, it’s the same 12-megapixel single wide-angle camera that has been included in the latest iPhone Xs. This 12-megapixel camera comes with f/1.8 aperture and a new sensor that can offer deeper pixels, improved low-light performance and better image fidelity. Thanks to the new processor, users will get to enjoy features like Smart HDR, depth control and better bokeh effect. There is no major upgrade in the selfie camera and it’s the same 7-megapixel camera with f/2.2 aperture. For those of you who are in the market for a good camera phone, there is the OnePlus 6 and Google Pixel 2 in the same price range as the Apple iPhone Xr South Africa price.
Surprisingly, this cheaper iPhone Xr will be packing the same latest processor like the iPhone Xs: Apple A12 Bionic hexa-core processor. This new processor will not only offer better gaming experience but also improve video editing, photography experience and battery life. According to Apple’s announcement, this new phone comes with a bigger and better battery that should last an hour and a half more than iPhone 8 Plus. It is splash and water resistant like it’s recently released siblings but got a rating of IP67 instead of IP68. Other notable features include: digital eSIM, dual SIM support, iOS 12, improved stereo speakers and Face ID.
This is where the rumors and leaks got it wrong, Apple iPhone Xr’s price. The starting price of this ‘affordable’ phone is R 10100 . It will be available in three different storage options: 64/128/256GB. Don’t expect to see this phone soon as the iPhone Xr release date South Africa is also quite far from now: October 26, 2018.
