Pre-order new, affordable iPhone from today in UAE

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have been available for a few weeks now with some pretty expensive price tags in the country.

Today a variety of YouTube videos have been published featuring hands-on looks at the iPhone XR, which becomes available for pre-order tomorrow and ships Friday, October 26th.

With a starting price of $749 Dollars, the iPhone XR is the cheapest among the new iPhone trio. With this model, the prices total up to RM3291, RM3491 and RM3951 for the 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models, respectively.

The device, launched along with luxury iPhone XS and XS Max, houses A12 Bionic chip with next-generation "Neural Engine", which unlocks new experiences for immersive augmented reality (AR), games and photography.

The iPhone XR will begin shipping on October 26th in more than 50 countries and territories, including the USA, and that's also when in-store sales will begin.




At the back is a single lens camera with a 12MP sensor which is similar to the wide-angle camera as the one found on iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

Apple suppliers have reportedly faced issues ramping up supply of the iPhone XR's Liquid Retina LCD display. The iPhone XR has no 3D Touch, unfortunately, and its bezel is slightly bigger.

The iPhone XR will be available at the Apple authorised resellers from October 26 in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models in black, white, blue, yellow, coral and red colours, the company said in a statement on Thursday. The iPhone XR will support gestures as Apple has bid adieu to the home button for its entire line-up for the first time.

This phone features plenty of new technology including a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina edge-to-edge display, wireless charging and new A12 Bionic processor which is now outperforming all of its Android rivals in speed tests. Online, the iPhone XR is listed for pre-orders on Amazon, though Flipkart is yet to list it.
