Apple iPhone XR with 6.1-Inch LCD Screen, Face ID is Now Official


               At the official unveiling event  in the Steve Jobs Theater Apple has also launched its affordable third new model dubbed as iPhone XR, which is regarded as the  successor to the iPhone 8. The XR is having a similar design to the larger XS Max, but features an LCD display rather than an OLED panel and is equipped with single camera on the rear.
              Apple iPhone XR feature a 6.1-inch  “Liquid Retina” display, with a resolution 1792 x 828  at 326 PPI, it offers Apple’s True Tone technology and has an apect ratio of 19.5:9. This LCD panel is equipped with 120Hz touch sensing  and supports wide color gamut as its AMOLED siblings.  Apple has not provided the 3D Touch on the iPhone XR, but instead the company is offering a new Haptic touch system, that gives a similar feedback which is seen on the buttonless MacBook Pro trackpad. The device is powered by the Apple's new A12 Bionic chipset coupled with  3 GB RAM and  64/128/256 GB internal storage.
                The  A12 Bionic in the new iPhone from Apple is the first 7nm chipset, it has a 6-core design (2 big + 4 small), plus a 4-core GPU and a new 8-core neural engine, which add up to a whopping 6.9 billion transistors. Apple has also claimed that the new chipset is  15% faster and 40% more power efficient when compared to its predecessor  the A11 chipsets. The latest GPU offers 50% higher performance and higher memory bandwidth with lossless compression and the new upgraded neural engine is capable of processing 5 trillion operations, up from 600 billion on the previous generation even though it has only twice the number of cores compare to the A11.


             There  is a  single 12-megapixel wide-angle camera with aperture  f/1.8 in the rear ( 1.4-micron pixels ) and it also offer portrait mode with bokeh effect. On the front there is a 7-megapixel camera that allows for Face ID as well as features like portrait mode selfies, Animoji, and Memoji. Since Apple has dropped the Touch ID fingerprint scanner technology for its smartphone security, all three iPhones use the same new True Depth camera for Face ID. Apple also promised that the iPhone XR  will offer 1 hour and a half better battery life than the iPhone 8 Plus, it also has IP67 water and dust protection.

              
              The iPhone XR is having multiple color options like Blue, Yellow, Coral, Black and Product Red. The budget model is arriving at a price tag of $750 for the 64GB, $800 for the 128GB and $900 for the 256 GB variants.
