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

There're two upgraded models: the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max, both looking very much the same as last year's iPhone X. The (literally) big difference is that the iPhone XS Max is a huge version of the iPhone X, sporting a 6.5-inch screen despite being the same physical size as an iPhone 8 Plus.

The new iPhones are likely to start at $800 for the LCD model, $900 for the iPhone X update and $1,000 for 6.5-inch OLED model, up from last year's starting prices of $699, $799 and $999, according to Nomura Group.

And Apple didn't stop at one iPhone this year: you'll have to choose between the Xs, the Xs Max (the Xs' bigger brother) and the confusingly named iPhone XR - a cheaper option if you don't fancy dipping into your rainy-day fund.

The iPhone XR will feature an aluminium frame, a 6.1-inch LCD screen, just one rear 12-megapixel camera, facial recognition, and the company's new A12 chip.


The XR features numerous same specifications as the XS duo but has only a single rear camera, an LCD screen - unlike the XS' OLED - and starts at £749 when it goes on sale in October.

To differentiate itself from the iPhone XS series, the XR gets the iPhone 5C treatment with a choice of six colours, namely Blue, White, Black, Yellow, Coral and Red.

Users get a single rather than dual camera, but Apple promises the iPhone XR provides its most advanced single-camera experience to date.

iPhone Xs and Xs Max will be available for preorder from September 14th and they will be available in stores from September 21st.


But when desi users found out that Apple has finally imbibed the dual SIM feature, it led to another round of jokes.

The new Apple Watch will start at $399 and be available on September 21. Apple is calling this the Liquid Retina display, and it has bezels slightly thicker than the iPhone Xs and Xs Max. Among the new improvements are bigger sensors and the ability to adjust the depth of field of a picture to blur the background even after a photo has been taken. The iPhone Xs Max will start at $1099. Instead of using stainless steel like the iPhone X and XS, the XR uses 7000 series aluminium for its metal frame. Xs Max is offered at £1,099, £1,249 and £1,449 price that is PKR 175,000, 200,000 and 230,000 respectively.
