Apple has done it yet again: by launching a brand new generation of iPhones, this time in the form of the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus that will see off the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Incidentally, the previous generation iPhones have now been given a price drop, so woe to those who could not wait for one more day before the iPhone 8’s release and picked up the previous generation handset. Just what kind of goodies can we expect from the new iPhones?
For starters, there will be a totally new glass and aluminum design, arriving in a trio of beautiful colors of gray, silver or gold, while sporting what has been touted to be the most durable glass ever used in a smartphone. There will also be the gorgeous looking Retina HD display as well as the speedy A11 Bionic chip, bringing together the right kind of hardware for the ultimate augmented reality experience.
As imaging had always been one of the strong qualities of an iPhone, there will be Portrait Lighting on the iPhone 8 Plus. Not only that, life is also made all the more convenient with the introduction of wireless charging on these two handsets. Expect both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus to be available for pre-order from Friday, September 15 in over 25 countries and territories, arriving in stores this Friday, September 22.
Precision‑engineered to resist water and dust, your eyes will be greeted by 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch Retina HD displays, working in tandem with True Tone to adjust the white balance of the display. Running on iOS 11, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are expected to be successes in its own right. In terms of pricing, there will be 64GB to 256GB models, with prices starting from $699 apiece.
