The latest iPhone 11 model touts similar specs as that of its predecessor, the iPhone XR. Nevertheless, buyers are still interested in upgrading to this latest model.
Apart from the iPhone 11 price, other parameters have to be compared to determine which among these two models exhibit better performance. Some of those are –
At an initial glance, there is no marked difference between the design of both devices. Those are 2.98 inches wide, 5.94 inches tall and 0.33 inches deep having a weight of 6.84 ounces. However, iPhone 11 stands at an IP68 rating. It means that the device can survive underwater in a depth of up to 2 meters for up to 30 minutes. On the other hand, iPhone XR is IP67 rated, where it can withstand only 1 meter of water.
The panels in both models remain identical, that is, 6.1 inches having a resolution of 1792 X 828 pixels. Edges of the smartphones exhibit a smooth curve owing to “Liquid Retina HD”. However, both iPhone XR and iPhone 11 falls short of the extent of brightness exuded in OLED screens, like those found in 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max and XS. These iPhones do not offer HDR. So, if you are viewing HDR content, the colour palette remains limited.
- Camera and battery
The major point of differentiation between the two models lies in the camera. At the same time, iPhone XR sports a 12MP wide camera, an extra lens for Ultra-Wide shots are added to iPhone 11. The latter also has a “Night Mode” that allows you to take a clear picture even in low-light scenes. Due to the lesser configuration of the camera, iPhone XR price stands at approximately Rs.49000.
However, there is only but a small difference in price. The current iPhone 11 price is somewhere around Rs.52000.
Moreover, iPhone 11’s battery life is also significant and offers an additional hour of video playback compared to iPhone XR.
- Other specifications
iPhone 11 comes with A13 Bionic chip, which is presently the fastest mobile chip made by Apple, whereas, A12 chip is used in iPhone XR. Consequently, iPhone 11 exhibits 20% more enhanced performance from a single charge.
iPhone XR does not have Wi-Fi 6 like the other model. Hence, the connections are a little slower compared to iPhone 11. The latter also extends Dolby Atmos support while viewing content. All these specifications put together lead iPhone 11 to provide better performance than iPhone XR.
