Earlier this month, at iPhone 2018 launch event, Apple officially showcased the next-gen iPhone models, dubbed as the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR. All carry the same design aesthetics as that of the predecessor iPhone X. But under the hood, there’s a new A12 Bionic chip which is companies first 7nm chipset to hit the market.
Since then all the device are available on the companies official website but the most affordable one – the iPhone XR – was with a disclaimer at the end of the page, saying the device might not be available for sale, per FCC rules. But that doesn’t seems to be the case now.
As per the latest report suggests, the phone with model number BCG-E3220A has just been approved by FCC. Right on time, as the pre-order of the device will begin in three weeks with actual sale to start from October 26.
This variant is the budget-conscious one and still has the new A12 bionic chip. It has a single camera sensor on the rear side with the larger 1.4µm pixels and all the advanced shooting techniques (Smart HDR, adjustable bokeh) that the Apple A12 Bionic chipset enables.
It is equipped with a tall 6.1″ 19.5:9 aspect ratio LCD screen with a resolution of 822 x 1,1792 pixels. The starting price of this is $750 and units will ship out on October 26.
