Features of iPhone 8 and 8 Plus
The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus has an all-glass body and comes in silver, space grey and a new gold colour. For those worried about cracking the front and back of the new device, Phil Schiller says the glass is reinforced with a steel and copper structure and is “the most durable ever in a smartphone”.
The devices have 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch retina displays and run on an A11 bionic chip.
Speakers are 25 percent louder and have deeper bass. Inside, it has an A11 Bionic chip. It is a 64-bit chip with two high performance cores that are 25 percent faster than the A10 and 4 high-efficiency cores that are 70 percent faster than in the A10 (the A10 only had two high-efficiency cores too). The GPU part is 30 percent faster.
The camera sensor and processor are band new. It works better in low light condition, it has some noise reduction technology. The two sensors on the back of the iPhone 8 Plus are f1.8 and f2.8 apertures — it is brighter than the iPhone 7 Plus. There are new color filters too, which should make colors pop more according to SVP of Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller.
