Its front has a similar edge-to-edge display, but LCD instead of OLED. What's new is that Apple filled out the "forehead" and "chin" area with screen, giving you the whopping 6.5 inches.

Because of its bigger display size, the pixel density is lower at 326ppi which is on par with the regular iPhone 8. The difference between the XR and the XS comes primarily in the screen, camera, and modem. Battery life in the new watch remains at 18 hours, meaning it needs a nightly recharge. The price of the XR will start at $749 in the USA and €849 ($987) in Germany.
