Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus Launched| Features| Specifications| Pricing| Availability

Apple just wrapped its presentation announcing the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus — alongside a whole bunch of other products — and the company has now let us into a demo area to try out the new phones.


iPhone 8 vs. iPhone 8 Plus:

  • The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus look pretty much the same as their predecessors, but they have a new back cover that’s coated in glass and gives them a somewhat fresher look.
  • They have a sort of subtle opalescent effect too, so it’s not just a glossy, shiny, ultra-reflective look. The glass blends into the sides of the phone incredibly well, better than we’ve seen on other phones.
  • There’s a subtle density to the glass, too, and overall it looks a lot better than the back of the 7.


Wireless Charging Feature:

That glass back allows for wireless charging, which is one of the big new features here. Wireless charging works with the Qi standard — we set it on a charging pad and it starting charging. 


iPhone 8 is not complete Bezel-less smartphone:

There are also still big bezels surrounding all sides. The iPhone 8 Plus is still as big as a surfboard. I am really really happy to see actual stereo speakers on an iPhone — near as I can tell the earpiece up top can just get super loud so you get proper stereo separation when you’re watching a video.


iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus Camera:

  • The portrait lightning features on the 7 Plus, in particular, were impressive. While you can still tell that the artificial lightning effects aren’t perfectly realistic, they’re miles ahead of any other camera gimmick we’ve seen.
  • They look more natural, are relatively subtle, and are just a smarter implementation overall.
  • You’re going to have fun playing with this, even if you don’t turn it into the default way you take photos from now on.


New Upgraded Processor and better camera:

They have a newer processor, the A11 Bionic, which seemed plenty fast, and better cameras, including new 12-megapixel sensors and an image processor built by Apple.


Price and Availability:

  • Both phones will be available later this month, on September 22nd.
  • The iPhone 8 will sell for $699 and the 8 Plus will sell for $799.
  • This year, there are only two configurations available for each of them: a 64GB entry-level model and a 256GB upgraded model.
