Description

The iPhone XR is an affordable, yet still very capable alternative to the iPhone XS. It features the same iPhone X-inspired design, along with gesture navigation and Face ID, and the same groundbreaking A12 Bionic system chip. The 6.1-inch screen, however, is an LCD one instead of OLED and has lower, but still Retina-level resolution. The camera on the back is just a single, 12MP unit, but it has a larger sensor and larger pixels for better image clarity. The iPhone XR will come in a variety of fresh new colors, including blue, yellow, coral, and red.

Display

  • Display size:
    • 6.1 inches
  • Resolution:
    • 828 x 1792 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 326 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

    • IPS LCD
  • Screen-to-body ratio:

    Screen-to-body ratio - Shows what part of the frontal area of a phone its screen occupies.

    • 79.24 %

      • F1.8
    • Focal length (35mm equivalent):

      Focal length (35mm equivalent) - The lower (shorter) the focal length number, the wider the shot will be. Conversely, longer focal length cameras produce narrower frames, which can be used for telephoto (zoomed-in) purposes.

      • 28 mm
