Many individuals and well-placed analysts in the tech community have been talking about Apple's 2019 iPhone lineup, but this is the first time that we know of that an analyst has stepped out into the public domain and put their beliefs and predictions on record.

What exactly is the iPhone XR and how does it differ from the XS and XS Max we hear you ask? It gets a 6.1-inch LCD Liquid Retina HD display (1792x828).

The retailer has an agreement with FNB, whereby the XR can be bought with an FNB credit card for R499 a month over 37 months for the 64GB version, R535 a month for the 128GB version, and R610 a month for the 256GB version.

Apple has also packed its new A12 Bionic chipset into the iPhone Xr, along with the best single-camera system the company has ever made - consisting of a 12MP f/1.8 lens.

The last quarter of every year is reserved for iPhone launches.

Unlike the iPhone XS and XS Max which come in Gold, Silver and Space Gray colours, the iPhone XR gets several attractive colour options that includes White, Black, Blue, Coral, Yellow and (PRODUCT) Red. This brings down the effective starting price to Rs 73,055. Indian consumers can consider pre-booking the iPhone XR model via e-retail platforms Flipkart, Amazon India, Paytm Mall, Airtel's online e-store as well as authorised Apple resellers like Imagine.

Apple is likely to sell its new and cheaper iPhone XR faster than the luxury iPhone XS and XS Max, an Apple analyst has claimed. Additionally, the iPhone XR is IP67 rated for dust and water resistance.

Despite there only being a single 12-megapixel camera on the rear glass case, the XR is fully capable of adding depth effects to your photos.

But if your old contract is at an end and you're dead set on grabbing a new flagship phone, then we reckon the iPhone XR is well worth the money.
