With all the phones that have launched in the last few weeks, we’d forgive you if you forgot that Apple launched the iPhone XR alongside the iPhone XS back in September. The phone, which in many ways, is the ‘affordable’ iPhone this year can now finally be pre-ordered in India via Paytm Mall.
The website has opened up the iPhone XR pre-orders today and you can head over to pre-order the iPhone XR in your choice of storage and color option (of which there are a lot). While the phone is scheduled to go on sale from October 26, as of tyhis writing, Paytm Mall is showing an average delivery date somewhere in the first few days of November.
The iPhone XR is priced starting at Rs. 76,900 and for that price you get what is basically an iPhone 8 with an iPhone X-like front (complete with the notch and Face ID). The phone is available in six quirky colors including Red, Orange, White, Black, Yellow, and Blue. It also comes with basically the same hardware as its more expensive brethren – the iPhone XS and XS Max. There’s an A12 Bionic chipset, wireless charging, Face ID, Portrait Mode on both the front and the back. There’s only a single rear camera but it’s the same as the primary camera on the iPhone XS. Also, instead of 4GB RAM that you’d get in the iPhone XS, the iPhone XR comes with 3GB RAM and in storage variants of 64GB, 128GB. and 256GB.
Also, if you pre-order on Paytm Mall, you’ll get a cashback of Rs. 7000, bringing the price of the phone down to Rs. 69,900 which, while still on the expensive side of things, is definitely a better price.
