The starting price is 859 euros and that is three hundred (!) Euros less than the starting price of the iPhone Xs, which costs 1159 euros.
That he is so much cheaper, is because he is made of cheaper parts. For example, the screen is oled, instead of an LCD. He also has no Touch ID and there is no double camera on the back. Furthermore, the frame of the Xr (which is available in all kinds of cheerful colors) of aluminum. With a screen of 6.1-inch, it is actually larger than the iPhone Xs (5.8-inch).
