Apple has today unveiled three new iPhone. I already have talked about the previous iPhone X which is the most high-end new iPhone with a brand new design for the front.
Let’s talk about the new iPhone 8. The first thing that is a major change is how Apple is going back to a glass design and aluminium frame on both new iPhone 8. And we talk about a full glass back here just as with iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. Yes that one who did break a lot! On the other hand Apple say this is having the most durable glass protection in a smartphone. Let’s see if that’s true…
It also features Apple’s latest A11 Bionic chipset, 64-Bit six-core CPU with four high-efficiency cores and two performance cores. The GPU for gaming and other graphic intense work is 30% faster than the A10.
You also on the back have the new 12 MP sensor and OIS on standard iPhone 8. It doesn’t sport a new camera design as on the iPhone X. The iPhone 8 Plus get a new Dual 12 MP sensor with f/1.8 and f/2.4. There is also some new filters included. New iPhone 8 also supports 1080p video slow motion record at 240 fps.
Stereo speakers 25% louder than the iPhone 7. Wireless charging also supported with Qi charging standard.
You can start to pre-order the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus on September 15 and on sale will begin on September 22. Colours will be Space Gray, Gold and Silver. 64GB or 256GB will be available. And the iPhone 8 will only start at $699 which is good news. The 8 Plus starts at $799.
So will be iPhone 8 be worth it if you have a iPhone 7? Not really from what I can see. An annoying glass back that can break at anytime, wireless charging that nobody will use, maybe an updated camera but is it really that much better, at least you still have a Touch ID on iPhone 8 still left. In iPhone X they completely removed it!
