A Review of Main Features

The design and appearance of the newbies remind us of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. One of the main distinguishing features is the glass on the front and the back of the device. Apple says that the glass body is “reinforced by laser welded steel and copper”.

Both models will sport an HD retina display and a 12MP camera. No surprise in the camera department since iPhone 7 and 7 Plus came with Dual 12MP cameras. However, the A11 Bionic Chip makes all the difference since it comes with special camera-centric features including an image signal processor which improves image processing.

In addition, if the images that Apple showed during the launch are anything to go by, then users can expect a super camera experience.

With regard to charging, Apple has finally caught up with main rivals with the inclusion of fast charging technology and wireless charging in both devices. The company promises that you will notice a drastic improvement in charging time.

The 2GB RAM in iPhone 8 should not be a deal breaker since the device does not exactly have features that require extra horsepower. The higher display resolution and dual cameras in iPhone 8 Plus can definitely use the 3GB RAM.

Finally, the new entrants have taken the crown from iPhone 7 and 7 Plus with regard to performance. The six core CPU, six core GPU, M11 motion coprocessor, 3GB RAM in iPhone 8 Plus and 2GB RAM in iPhone promise faster performance.

The two devices may spell doom for Galaxy 8 and 8 plus as well as Note 8 considering that both are virtually in the same price range.

When will iPhone 8 and 8 Plus go on sale?

The devices are set to go on sale on September 22nd. However, if you had ready cash and can’t wait to get your hands on a unit, pre-orders start from September 15th.

While iPhone x is the new bae on the block, its’ four figures price tag makes it a bit unaffordable to many. It is possible that more people will opt for iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus instead. This is just as assumption since only time will tell.
