In the launch of the new Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, it was noted s a remarkable event because Apple announced some really cool stuff we have never seen on any smartphone.

Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus launched along the iPhone X (Click the link to see full iPhone X features).

The event was pretty much what we were all expecting from the iPhone 8 rumoured specifications previously published on this blog.

Let’s quickly have a look at the features of this new iPhone devices.

Design

Consumers interested in this particular range will benefit from a handset which has mostly similar visuals to the existing iPhone 7 and 7 Plus which will now step aside for iPhone 8 and 8 Plus to shine. The same overall aesthetic has remained loyal to iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, but with the addition of a glass panel on the back to allow for wireless charging capabilities.

Apple has also been forced to make the hardware slightly thicker with increased dimensions due to use of glass instead of aluminium, although to the human eye, it’s hardly noticeable.

Display

The display on the iPhone 8 also gets an upgrade with the True Tone technology which debuted with the 9.7-inch iPad Pro last year. Apple is also telling us that the Retina HD display on the iPhone 8 allows for wider viewing angles as well. As expected, 3D Touch is present and accounted for.

Stereo Speakers

Also new is – wait for it – stereo speakers! A huge boost over the iPhone 7’s audio, and a much-awaited one for the audiophiles.

Processor

To go along with the gorgeous exterior, Apple has also increased the performance of the device by integrating its new TSMC-manufactured A11 Bionic SoC which offers instant processing gains and is 25% faster than the A10 CPU in the iPhone 7. That’s the same processor which is found in iPhone X, which when put together with the efficiencies and improvements made with iOS 11 should account for a seriously impressive and highly fluid experience. There’s also the M11 motion coprocessor, coupled with a Neural Engine.

There’s also the 2GB RAM packed into the 4.7-inch iPhone 8 (like on iPhone 7), while the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus gets 3GB RAM (like iPhone 7 Plus). And they both support fast charging as well?

Wireless Charging

As mentioned earlier, the glass back is present to make way for wireless charging. Lucky for us, it adheres to the Qi-standard, which means you can pair it up with any of your certified charging pads, or if you must, pair it up with Apple’s own AirPower mat.

Camera

On the camera front, the 4.7-inch iPhone 8 packs a new 12MP sensor with faster low-light autofocus, and finally; Optical Image Stabilization! The 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus gets a dual-camera treatment with a new 12MP sensor with a f/1.8 primary and f/2.8 telephoto lens. According to Apple, this new 12MP sensor allows for 83% more light to be captured, with an obvious impact on the much-loved Portrait Mode. Speaking of Portrait Mode, Apple is also offering a new feature called “Portrait Lightning”, which automatically adjusts and tweaks the lighting.

The iPhone 8 dramatically improves on the video recording aspect as well with a new Apple-developed video encoder. Behold! 1080p video-recording at 240fps is finally here now with the iPhone 8. This is closely followed by 4K recording at a whopping 60fps; a first for any smartphone.

On the front, the FaceTime camera is a 7MP, can record 1080p videos, but nothing new here.

AR Ready

So what do you do when you pack in a state-of-the art mobile CPU and a pioneering-camera in your smartphone? You make the phone AR-capable. The A11 Bionic allows for “world tracking and scenes”, while the “GPU renders realistic graphics” along with “real-time lighting”.

Battery

Again, being built around the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, there’s not much gain in battery life here, with Apple suggesting that the new phones would last about the same on a single charge as their older brethren.

Storage Capacities

Apple is offering iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in a 64GB and 256GB storage configuration.
