The iPhone 8/8 Plus are quite similar to the iPhone 7/7 Plus. Both retains the same display sizes of 4.7” and 5.5” but with added support for TrueTone adaptive display. To support wireless charging, the iPhone 8/8 Plus uses glass for the rear instead of aluminium.

While the camera specs appear to be similar to its previous model, Apple has fitted new image sensors which puts it at the top spot by DxOMark mobile. As you would expect, both iPhone models will be rocking Apple’s latest A11 Bionic chip which is the same unit that’s powering the iPhone X. You can learn more about the iPhone 8 in our announcement post.

If you’re looking for their top of the line iPhone X, it would be available later this year beginning 3 November in first wave countries.
