Each year Apple Inc. announces launch of its new phones. There are many reasons for Apple’s fans to wait eagerly for new phones. Expectations from Apple this year were a little higher than years before. This was partly because of increased competition between Samsung & Apple, but the main reason was Apple’s image of producing something different, something unique. Which was somewhat absent from last few launches. So let’s find out what  Apple is offering to its fans.

Apple iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus

This year Apple announced the launch of iPhone 8 & iPhone 8 Plus. This is different from the earlier track of launching s models, as was done with 6 models with a launch of 6s,odels next year. It is because when models don’t have enough added features apple doesn’t upgrade the model number and name it as “s”.

This means that iPhone 8 & iPhone 8 Plus has substantial differences than the 7 series models. Both the models retain the same size of 4.7″ for lower model and 5.5″ for “s” model. The display has been tweaked for better brightness & richer colors. Though the look of the new phones is iconic of Apple but inside is significantly different.

New Features

The most significant of all is the glass layer at the back instead of metallic cover as in earlier models. This not only provides different feel at hand but also enables wireless charging. To avail wireless charging, the optional accessory will have to be bought which will be manufactured and sold by Belkin.

 Next, the most significant difference is a new A11 Bionic processor. It is the same processor which performs more expensive X models. The new processor is up to 75%  faster than earlier used processors under similar use. The speciality of this new processor is the neural engine which is capable of specific machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms. This enables the processor to perform 600 billion operations per second for real time processing.

The cameras in iPhone 8 are single setup whereas iPhone 8 Plus equipped with du the l camera. The important upgrade is the optical image stabilization. It will allow clicking better low-light photography and smoother videos.  The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus get the benefits of better colour filters, deeper pixels and an improved image signal processor, wider colour capture, faster auto focus in low light and richer HDR photos. A fun new addition to the iPhone 8 Plus is the ability to set filters known as Portrait Lighting for portrait photos. This can be done later while editing the photos in the phone’s Photos app.

Other features

The phones will be available in space grey, silver and the Gold colours. The storage will be 64 GB and 256 GB with price starting at Rs 64000. The phones will compete with Google Pixel, Samsung Galaxy S8 & it’s own product iPhone 7 plus. Various features of 8 plus models are as below –
