Apple iPhone XR will have a ‘Better Than Expected’ demand: Ming Chi-Kuo

It's October 19, and Apple has opened up pre-orders for the iPhone XR, the more colorful, less expensive, and slightly less powerful variant of its flagship new phone.

The phone will be available in blue, yellow, red, black, white and coral similar to the iPhone 5C in 2013. The pre-order and arrival dates of the first wave coincide with the third wave of iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max arrivals in over 30 countries and territories, including Chile, Colombia, Malaysia, and Thailand.

Bank analysts and some supply chain sources have expressed longstanding confidence in a strong season for sales of the iPhone XR, especially as the pricier iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have been drifting in the market.

If you don't find your city in the list of 143 cities, then head over to TimeandDate to find out iPhone XR pre-order time in your time zone. Indeed, the main distinction between the iPhone XR and the XS is that the former ships with an LCD display as opposed to an OLED display. The phone is powered by Apple's latest six-core A12 Bionic SoC, coupled with a quad-core GPU, 3GB of RAM, and 64GB/ 128GB/ 256GB of inbuilt storage. She mentions how Portrait mode on the XR only works on human subjects due to the way the single-lens camera operates, and interestingly she also says that the two Stage Light effects in Portrait mode aren't available with the rear-facing camera.

Interested buyers can head over to Flipkart, Amazon.in or Paytm Mall to pre-book the iPhone XR online on Friday. The front camera also houses a faster Face ID system.
