PA team .... You guys have obligation to deduct 5 points of final score when you review of new iPhones. This is an abomination ... It cannot be any uglier

For the record, notch on Samsung fold is the most prettiest notch ever in the smartphone.

I am not a Samsung fan and I agree.

No. I like Samsung products and that notch on the Fold is as ugly as the one one any other phone. Its a compromise they didn't have to do. That's why its broken. Hopefully they fix the ugly before fixing the broken.

It won’t change for another 10 hrs. Why do it when the followers are in love with it?

The design is fine except for the huge camera bump on the back :P

I accept this years camera bump. Once a case is placed on the phone it will blend in nicely. People make these comments as if the phone looks horrible. Last I checked we look at the front of screen 98% of the time and not the back. I’m not trying to show Apple fan boyism, but these comments are getting pretty ridiculous.

It does look horrible. and you're syaing Apple can flush moutn the cameras now? I mean everyoen else has bigger and fancier camera modules and they are flush mount. So what if the phoen is 1MM or 2MM thicker. You get a bigger battery too. How is it this 6.1" phone has less space inside, when even Samsung's Galaxy S8' which has far and away more stuff inside also still have a significant;y larger battery in a smaller phone? Why not QHD OLED? I mean doesn't the S10e have it? In fact look at all other phones for $750 and look at their hardware. How is it Apple has brainwashed people into excepting that you are suppose to pay more money for less?

So, you have seen a video on YouTube and, posted a misleading title and published an article...

The first paragraph states that these renders "showcase what the 2019 iPhone XR might look like." There's no guarantee this is the final design. But Steve Hemmerstoffer has an extremely accurate track record, which includes the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR designs. If you don't want to trust Steve then don't, nobody's forcing you. But it's highly likely this will be the final design.

But the tile is just a click bait - which shows a low level press. How about formulating your titles so that the readers don't waste their time watching "no guarantee this is the final design" leaks?

No design is guaranteed until the day of launch. I am very confident in this leak, hence the title.

41. Leo_MC

If you're confident, the title should be "Meet what I am confident it will be the 2019 iPhone XR". Anyway you turn it, unless you publish an official image (from Apple), that is not "the 2019 iPhone XR".

Please shut up. You are arguing over a leak of what IS the final design of the next iPhone. You just being a pain for no reason. Just shut up about it already.

Your words and ideas mean absolutely nothing so don't even bother talking to me. That leak is PROBABLY something - you didn't even bother to read the article, in your quest to write a dumb thing. The saddest part is when a zero message has 2 people that gives it a thumb up...

Joshua, I have a doubt .. Last year you guys posted that ipad 2018 took almost 7h to charge. Mine came with 12W charger and takes 4h. Battery is almost 9000mAh for this model.

Agree with you on this one.

I've just seen the Facebook post for this article; I quote: "Here's what the iPhone XR 2019 MIGHT look like." The title on the site is just a pathetic clickbait, the title on Facebook is correlated to the content of the article; the same PhoneArena.

Just another "budget" iPhone not a budget phone

I can bet the next XR will be offered at a significantly lower price, just like the $329 2017 iPad. I'm guessing $599.

Can't see that happening but I'd be impressed if they do!

Xr sales cannibalized Xs and Max so they are making this thing butt ugly to force more users to upgrade to the flagship.
