Product Expert mobile phones

The Apple iPhone XR 256GB Blue is the successor of the iPhone 8. The smartphone has a single 12-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, which allows you to take sharp photos. The design of this device is similar to the iPhone X. The wide screen edges make way for a virtually borderless screen with a small opening at the top. The fingerprint scanner has also disappeared, and now you can unlock the device with Face ID. The casing is made of glass, which allows the smartphone to support wireless charging. With its 6.1 inches, the LCD screen of the iPhone Xr Blue is much bigger than the iPhone 8 or 8 Plus, which allows you to comfortably watch your favorite series. This device has a large storage capacity of 256GB. This is useful if you take photos and videos in the highest resolution all day long and use a lot of apps.
