The XR starts at $1229 for the 64GB model, rises to $1299 for the 128GB model, which makes you wonder why anyone would bother with the 64GB model, and rises to $1479 for the 256GB model.

Several weeks after the iPhone XS and XS Max went on sale, we're finally getting closer to the release of the iPhone XR.

For anyone who might be on the fence with the iPhone XR preorder right around the corner, some hands-on impressions might be enough to sway you one way or another.

The iPhone XR pre-bookings listing is now live on IndiaiStore, the official offline partner for Apple in India. The high-end iPhone XR will hit retail shelves on October 26 in India and other major global markets including the US, UK, UAE etc.

The new iPhone XR comes with all-screen glass and aluminium design. It also comes with basically the same hardware as its more expensive brethren - the iPhone XS and XS Max.

As for the phone itself, it packs a 6.1-inch LCD display with 1792 x 828 resolution.

The iPhone XS, XS Max and XR are not long out and already rumours for the iPhone XI, aka iPhone 11, have begun.

For selfies, the iPhone XR sports a 7MP selfie camera with a f/2.2 aperture along with a TrueDepth camera for FaceID.

Apple enthusiasts in India are in for some treat this festive season with the company launching its latest iPhone XR.

The "Depth Control" lets users adjust the depth of field both in real-time preview and post-capture.

The new lower cost iPhone will also use FaceID, and the same A12 Bionic chip and its new siblings. The front camera also houses a faster Face ID system.
