The phone will be available in blue, yellow, red, black, white and coral similar to the iPhone 5C in 2013.
The caution could exist because of the weak demand and sale record of the already released iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. The first batch of new iPhones received favorable reviews but several recommended waiting to see what the iPhone XR brings to the table before making a purchasing decision.
"We believe that replacement demand for XR will be better than it was for the iPhone 8 series a year ago because of XR's larger display, longer battery life, dual-SIM support, and new form factor design", Kuo said in the note to investors.
The iPhone XR was among the trio of devices the company launched last month.
Aside from iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, Apple Malaysia has also revealed the pricing for the equally new iPhone XR. If you opt for 128GB, the price climbs up to $799, and the 256GB variant costs $899. Once you get your oder in, devices are slated to ship (and appear in retail stores) beginning next Friday on October 26. These include US, UK, Canada, China, Australia, and more.
Apple iPhone XR will be adopted more readily than before, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
The affordable iPhone XR has a 6.1-inch LCD screen with liquid Retina display and aluminium body instead of a steel one.
In the camera department, the iPhone XR sports a single rear 12-megapixel camera sensor with a 6P lens, f/1.8 aperture, OIS, Focus Pixels, and a quad-LED True Tone flash. The front camera also houses a faster Face ID system.
