Apple iPhone Xr officially introduced: Colorful is the existence

As the Apple bus radio already leaked, was allowed today, a third handset called Apple iPhone Xr be expected. That's how it came about - the smartphone was just introduced and is the bird of paradise in the new smartphone portfolio from Cupertino.

It was not just some sparrows whistling it from the rooftops, but about every damn bird in the northern hemisphere: yes, in addition to the two new OLED iPhones, there will also be a "cheap" LCD variant. Logically, therefore, that this LCD iPhone was previously presented in Cupertino.

Also the name - Apple iPhone Xr - made before the round, as well as in general also this time again a lot was known about what Apple would serve there today for us. It was also mentioned in advance that this iPhone Xr would be a cheap variant of the iPhone X successors. Well - that's the way it is: Of the new three models, the Xr is the only one that you "already" get for under 1 000 ocks.

But it is not a snap, because while the US gets a price of 749 US dollars, we are in this country only from 849 euros at the start. But for this coal you also get a smartphone, which does not really hide behind other high-end devices, no matter if iOS or Android is installed there.

Apple has also left no occasion for the keynote to point out that the Xr is for the most part identically well-equipped like the new Xs Series handsets. That goes for the processor, for the borderless design and much more. Let's take a look at the technical data of this 6.1-inch knocker:

In the pictures above you can see four of the six available colors in which you can get the iPhone Xr. But do not let that fool you: it's not about compensating for the device's poor performance with gaudy colors or something similar. The same A12 Bionic processor with six cores performs under the hood of his work and should ensure that the Xr again performs better than last year's smartphones including iPhone X.

Also with the camera Apple does not want to be naked, although you can see that the boys and girls from Cupertino trust here on a single shooter, instead of a dual-cam to obstruct. Logically, that sounds in the marketing of Apple on the product side still very adventurous:

Sensors, processors, algorithms. And you.
The innovative camera system combines image signal processor, neural engine and advanced algorithms. This brings you new creative possibilities and helps you to take incredible photos.

What the 12-MP camera with ƒ / 1.8 aperture and optical image stabilization actually has on the pan, the test will have to show, the same is true for the 7-MP TrueDepth-Knips on the front. For example, with the pixel phones, you can also create a bokeh effect with a simple main camera, and of course Apple, of course, also plays the AI ​​card, which should promise great results.

With an LCD panel, one would think that the display is a possible weak point of the device, but Apple emphasized in the keynote that here was the best ever installed LCD panel installed. Regardless of whether this is really true, you should again think briefly at Apple what LCD stands for (Liquid Crystal Display), before always speaking of "LCD display".

When we talk about how Apple comments on the display: Of course, they gave the panel a nickname and called it "Liquid Retina HD Display". Apple promises special color accuracy and speaks even of the color-accurate LCD panel of all time. We will also have to personally convince ourselves of this. The resolution is certainly not very high with 1792 x 828 pixels in view of a screen size of 6.1 inches and is just 326 pixels per inch.

Let us return to the design: of course, the Notch also remains here and for good reason. While many Android manufacturers this Notch without great effort, Apple also uses the iPhone Xr space to accommodate heaps of sensors. Also, the Xr comes out without a home button and thus without a fingerprint sensor, which is why the Californians also put on this cheaper model on Face ID. 3D Touch, on the other hand, is not supported on the iPhone Xr.

The material here is used instead of stainless steel aluminum, the back is like the more expensive models here also made of glass. The 194 gram and 8.3 mm thin smartphone is available in six colors: red, yellow, white, coral, black and blue. With the memory you can choose between 64, 128 and 256 GB.

It starts at 849 euros, the middle model is available for 909 euros and the largest iPhone Xr beats with 1 019 euros zubuche. This is of course still a high-priced smartphone, compared to the most expensive iPhone Xs Max, which costs 1 649 euros, but the iPhone Xr is actually almost a snapper.

But if you want to strike, you have to be patient: While the iPhone Xs phones are about to start, buyers have to be patient with the iPhone Xr until October: from 19.10. can be pre-ordered, exactly one week later will be shipped or you can then buy the smartphone in the stores.

Viewed from afar, my first impression is that Apple is adding a very interesting model to its product range, but I think it would have done a hundred, that is, $ 749. What are your opinions on the "cheap" iPhone?
