It is powered by the A12 Bionic CPU which is build on a 7nm processor with 6 cores coupled with 4GB RAM. Both the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max also feature 512GB of internal storage. Pre-orders are typically skewed to the higher end of the market, since hardcore Apple fans are likely to want the best devices Apple makes.
Moving on to the iPhone XR's screen, TechRadar's Gareth Beavis reports that it is a 18:9, 6.1-inch LCD "Liquid Retina" panel, which is cheaper to make than the OLED panels fitted to the iPhone XS and XS Max.
For the first time, Apple will not bundle a wired headphone dongle with its iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone XR. All other details are same as that of the iPhone XS.

The phone has a single 12MP rear sensor, rather than the two on the XS and XS Max, while the front comes installed with a TrueDepth camera for facial unlocking and selfies. The price will start from RMB 6499 and is available in six colours - Yellow, White, Coral, Black, Blue and Red. In a "What's in the Box" listing on its product pages, Apple said that you'll find an iPhone, charger, and its wired Earpods earbuds.
Gareth is very clear in his summation of the iPhone XR's camera system, which he states is "the weakest of the three phones" just announced by the American maker. The iPhone Xs starts at $999 for the 64GB variant and the iPhone Xs Max starts at $1099 for similar storage.
The third iPhone announced on Wednesday, the "affordable" iPhone XR, is coming a bit later; pre-orders start on October 19, and shipments will commence on October 26.
