The new iPhone XS and XS Max are already on sale, but Apple has one more new iPhone waiting in the wings: The iPhone XR is coming on October 26th, and you’ll be able to buy it in six available colors.

In many ways, the iPhone XR is superior to the new iPhone XS. But which color is best, and how are you supposed to decide before you see the new iPhones in person?

Thankfully, YouTuber Marques Brownlee, a.k.a. “MKBHD,” spent some time with the new iPhone XR at Apple’s big September event and took some beautiful footage of the colorful new phones using his incredible 8K camera rig. It’s the next-best thing to seeing these phones in person.

Here’s a high-definition look at the red, blue, yellow, white, black, and “coral” versions of the new iPhone XR:


First, let’s look at the white iPhone XR. Here it is from the front.

Here it is next to the silver iPhone XS. As you can see, the iPhone XR has a much brighter white color.

And here’s that white iPhone XR from the side. The slightly darker chassis around the sides of the phone provides a nice contrast.

Here it is at an angle. You can see the metal edges have a slightly different blue hue, which provides a nice contrast.

There aren’t many yellow smartphones out there, but you can buy the iPhone XR in yellow. Here’s what the front looks like.

And here’s the back.

From an angle, you can see the metal edges again have a slightly different color — it almost looks golden.

One of the more interesting new colors for the iPhone XR is “coral,” which is like pink meets orange. Here it is from the front.

And here’s the back of the phone.

Here it is at an angle. The metal edges almost look like copper, while the back has more of a salmon color.

Finally, Apple made a red iPhone XR. Here it is from the front.

And here it is from the back. This is actually the first time a new iPhone has been available in the Product(RED) color scheme at the time of its launch.

From an angle, you can see how this phone gives off serious Ferrari vibes.

You have plenty of time to decide which of the six colors you like the most before the iPhone XR launches on October 26. Preorders go live one week earlier.
