Pre-order new, affordable iPhone from today in UAE
For those who have held out buying the new iPhones because they find it too expensive, the more affordable version is almost here, and you can be among the first to own it.
Apple will today begin accepting pre-orders for the iPhone XR, which was among the trio of devices the company launched last month.
While bearing the same new-generation design spurred by last year's decade-anniversary iPhone X - an all-screen display with a notch on top - the iPhone XR noticeably leaves out some flagship features: it will come with only a 6.1-inch LCD screen - 'Liquid Retina', as Apple terms it - and a single-lens camera system. The 5.8-inch iPhone XS and 6.5-inch XS Max uses OLED panels.
It will, however, come in a 128GB model - along with 64GB and 256GB options - which is said is the ideal storage option for a smartphone.
Of course, the price is the main factor here: the iPhone XR will cost Dh3,179, Dh3,389 and Dh3,809 for their respective incrementing capacities. This is significantly lower than the XS and XS Max, and at par with the launch prices of last year's iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.
And it also comes in more colours - six to be exact, reminiscent of the iPhone 5C from 2013: white, black, blue, yellow, coral and (Product)RED.
