    The Xr steals the show in that picture with having the best color.
    It also runs android, and won’t officially be released in the US.

    Great looking device, but ironic you brought it up considering the context of this article.

    At such a price level it's still anything but a "budget" device, and Apple choosing to use this potato LCD with iPhone 4's PPI and without even 3D Touch enabled feels really, really lame.

    Really disappointed by the lack of a Mickey Mouse color option on the Xr.

    They may release an iPhone Product Disney next spring, as they already made the product Red version

    Huawei Mate 20 pro has thicker bezels on the bottom and top than the Xr, which has thicker bezels all around the Xs.

    Can't wait to see reviews of this device. I think it's going to be a big hit.

    Actually a disappointed device ! No 3D touch, low Resolution, thick bezels, LCD display! A hard time for Apple against all the android devices like Huawei etcetera. :confused:

    Nope. The Gold looks far more appealing and premium.

    Good thing the new devices are water-resistant, as you're gonna need a garden hose to get Mickey to leave that iPhone alone. :D

    Hmmm matter of taste. I like the gold bazel but the backing is way to pinkish for my taste. I will buy the gold watch though. On the XR I'm gonna withhold my judgement until i see it in person. I would actually buy one IF the screen looks good. And that is big IF considering the specs. iOS is what keeps me in the Apple ecosystem - I find hardware lagging behind year after year.

    I don't think so and aluminum looks cheap compared to stainless steel.

    The Mate 20 Pro has a chin and runs Android.

    It's also a spyware device for China.

    I disagree, but the irony is, none of them are cheap.

    It's spyware for China and also spyware for Google.

    So glad there will still be an LCD option this year. The OLED pwm gives me the worst eye strain.

    Because otherwise, they copied Apple all the way down to Animoji.

    Nice to see Apple launching elsewhere - they've caught up to demand here in the U.S. (seeing Max's are available for pickup in the U.S. now).

    The Xr should rock, looking forward to its battery life....its launching without a factory unlocked option (unlike the Xs and Xs Max) which indicates (based on past history of launches) supply constraints on it. I'll be waiting till that option is available before buying, which could be a while (guessing).
