Last week Apple introduced its new generation of smartphones with the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR.
The XS line offers a lot of hardware-level improvements over the iPhone X, and the iPhone XR represents a much cheaper option for consumers who want to renew their mobile phone.
But do not let your funny colors or their cheaper price (in relation to the iPhone XS) fool you. The iPhone XR is not the new iPhone 5c ...
The iPhone 5c was manufactured with a plastic finish in a wide range of colors and many differences at the hardware level, with cheaper components that ensured a much cheaper price.
The truth is that after the launch of the iPhone 5c, many users criticized the company implying that Apple would not perform this experiment again. But now that the iPhone XR is about to hit the market, the question jumps back to the fore: Is the iPhone XR the new iPhone 5c? Clearly not. In fact, Apple used the nomenclature "XR" leaving aside the rumored name "Xc".
Why is the iPhone XR a very different smartphone than the iPhone 5c?
The price of the iPhone XR is significantly lower than the price of the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max (which reaches 1,913 dollars in its version of 512 GB). But, in turn, its price is much higher than the price of the launch of the iPhone 5c, which was 690 dollars.
The iPhone XR is available from $ 990, a clear indication that the smartphone offers many more new features in reference to the iPhone XS than the iPhone 5c offered with respect to the iPhone 5s in its day. And what has changed? These are some of its characteristics:
6.1-inch Liquid Retina LCD Screen
12 MP wide-angle camera
IP67 water and dust resistance
Chip A12 Bionic
