Apple’s new 6.1-inch iPhone Xr will be available in black, white, red, yellow, coral and blue according to sitemaps discovered by Allthings.how that reveal the new LCD low-cost device will be offered in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB storage configurations.
Just like the iPhone X, the 6.1-inch iPhone Xr model is said to feature a full edge-to-edge display with the same slimline bezels and TrueDepth Camera System to allow for Face ID, and of course Animoji and Memoji coming with iOS 12.
Unlike the iPhone X, the iPhone Xr is said to only feature one single camera on the rear (just like the iPhone 8), meaning its unlikely that customers will benefit from Portrait Mode, Apple’s depth-of-field photography feature. The device will most-likely feature an aluminum frame instead of a stainless steel frame, and it may not come equipped ready for wireless charging.
The Wall Street Journal is expecting the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone to lead iPhone sales in 2018. Some reports have claimed that the new iPhone may not support 3D Touch to help keep production costs down, in return helping Apple reduce the retail price of the handset.
The new iPhone Xr is expected to be priced between $600 – $800.
