5 Things to Know about iPhone Xr before Pre-Ordering!
iPhone Xr has a complete glass back with aluminium frame all around it. The aluminium frame has a good looking matte finish which gives the iPhone Xr a rich look. There are no major changes in the looks of the phone.
The power button is at the right side, volume rockers and mute switch at the left. A symmetrical speakers at the button and a notch at the top. The iPhone Xr also has the same Face ID, Dual Sim Support and the Accelerometer as the iPhone Xs does.
iPhone Xr is powered by this year’s A12 Bionic Chip which does also power the iPhone Xs and Xs Max. Phone has the same RAM as well, the battery on this iPhone is one and a half hour more than the iPhone 8 Plus. Apple didn’t specifically mention the Battery capacity, just compared it to the last year’s iPhone and let us do the math.
iPhone Xr has the latest 12MP camera which is also the primary camera for the iPhone Xs and the Xs Max. So, that is something interesting. Apple also has added a software enabled Portrait Mode on this iPhone along with the Depth-Controller.
Front Camera on this phone is the same a TrueDepth 7 MP camera, capable of shooting with Smart HDR.
The display is the twist on the new iPhone Xr, it has a Liquid LCD panel with a slitly higher resolution as compared to 720p. Which means you cannot watch 1080p content on this phone. This iPhone also missing the 3D Touch due to the lack of OLED panel, but Apple did substitute it with Long Hold feature.
One more difference is that due to having a LCD panel, the phone cannot have that Edge-to-Edge display that Apple has in the iPhone Xs, Xs Max and X. Which gives you a thin bezel all around the phone. It is noticeable if you have previously used an iPhone X or have seen the new iPhone Xs and Xs Max.

It is too much to choose from, however I personally prefer the Red, Blue and the Black version of iPhone Xr. Let us know in the comments which colour did you pick-up or planning to pick up?
