Apple iPhone XR Release Date, Price & Specs: Pre-order TODAY


The 'cheap' iPhone really isn't all that cheap at £749, but it does look to be the one everyone will want. Here's what you need to know about the iPhone XR release date, price and specifications.

With the same design as the pricier iPhone XS and XS Max but with a 6.1in LCD screen, the new iPhone XR uses much of the same hardware including the A12 Bionic chip. It's the new iPhone everyone will want, but it's not the small and cheap iPhone SE 2 we were hoping for.

iPhone XR release date
You can pre-order the iPhone XR starting today, with the phone on sale on 26 October.

It's available in a range of colours including white, black, blue, yellow, coral and red.

iPhone XR price
Starting at £749/US$749 with 64GB of storage, the iPhone XR is also available in 128GB (£799/$799) and 256GB capacities (£899/$899).

iPhone XR features and specs
The iPhone XR is very similar to the iPhone XS and XS Max, sitting between them in terms of size with a 6.1in screen. The key difference here is this is an LCD rather than OLED panel, which Apple has termed a 'Liquid Retina Display'. 

It's an edge-to-edge screen with 1.4m (1792x828) pixels and a pixel density of 326ppi. Although it's larger than the screen on the iPhone 8 Plus, the phone itself is actually smaller. It's built from 7000-series aluminium with IP67 waterproofing.

It has many of the same features, bar 3D Touch (it has Haptic Touch), such as the 120Hz touch-sensitive layer, wide colour display and tap to wake. It has no home button and instead is navigated using screen gestures.

The XR has the same Apple A12 Bionic processor as the faster models - a 7nm chip that Apple claims is faster than anything on the smartphone market with 15% greater performance on the CPU and 50% on the GPU than the Apple A11. It has just 3GB of RAM compared to their 4GB, however.

The camera setup is also the same... sort of. It's a single- rather than dual-lens camera, but the one lens it does have at the rear matches that of the XS. This is a 12Mp wide-angle camera with a six-element lens, 1.4um pixels, f/1.8 aperture and an improved True Tone flash.

Also seen in the iPhone XS is the front camera setup. The XR has exactly the same Face ID system, and all the tech at the front including the 7Mp selfie camera, with a faster sensor and f/2.2 aperture, an IR camera and dot projector, is all present and correct.

Apple compares battery life to the iPhone 8 Plus and says it is an hour and a half longer.

Dell XPS 13 9380 (2019) Review

Dell's flagship laptop returns to us in 2019 with refreshed specs, a brand new webcam design and a cheaper model. We review the XPS 13 9380 in full.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 (2019)?
The XPS 13 for 2019 ticks all the boxes. It looks great, the build quality is excellent, it’s nice and portable and has a wide range of specs to choose from.
While not a massive upgrade from last year's model, it’s had some solid refinement including getting the webcam back into the top bezel and also introduces a more affordable Core i3 edition.

iHealth Core Review

This smart scale from iHealth offers detailed body composition measurements, from BMI to visceral fat rating. Find out what we think in our iHealth Core review.
Should I Buy The iHealth Core? We like the way that the Core and Lite scales interact with the other iHealth products, and the Core offers a bunch of useful metrics with which to monitor your health. Setup is easy and the app's graphs give a decent visual representation of your health-metric trends as you progress.

Huawei P30 Pro Release Date, Price & Specs Rumours

Huawei's MWC press conference didn't include an announcement of the P30 range. Instead, it will hold a launch event in Paris at the end of March. We round up rumours, speculation and more on the new Huawei line-up, including the expected P30 release date, price and specifications.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.
