The Apple iPhone 8 Is Here – Nothing Spectacular

Thursday, October 26, 2017

Apple finally reveals its newer flagship – the iPhone 8. It isn’t anything spectacular! Well, at least if you already own an iPhone 7 or the 7 Plus, you should not upgrade it. But, if you have an older iPhone or may be you just don’t have the budget for the iPhone X, you could get the iPhone 8!

The iPhone 8 & iPhone 8 Plus comes packed with the latest and greatest A11 Bionic chip. However, considering there’s no Face ID on the iPhone 8 and the 8 Plus. Wasn’t the A10 chip already fast enough for real-life usage?

It ships with an improved camera sensor alongwith the new feature of “Portrait Lighting” – which is still in beta. The portrait lighting feature is definitely something impressive – you get to tweak the lighting in real-time while you take a portrait photo.

The iPhone 8 now supports wireless charging and immersive AR experience with some new exclusive AR games scheduled to land at the App Store.

The iPhone 8 Plus will be the variant with dual-lens camera starting at $799 and the iPhone 8 would be a single lens variant starting at $699. The storage options for both of them would be either 64 GB or 256 GB.

It will be available from Septmeber 29 onwards.
