True to the prevailing rumors, Apple introduced not one – but three iPhone devices at its much-awaited 12 September keynote. The iPhone X launch was accompanied by the introduction of the iPhone 8 line-up. The devices serve as successors to 2016’s iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. They come packed with super-high specifications and an understandably-hefty price-tag. Both the phones will compete with Galaxy S8.

The price of the both models

According to a report by Tech Radar, pre-orders for the iPhone 8 lineup will begin on Friday, September 15. The shipping will begin seven days later, on September 22.

The first phase will initially be rolled out in US, UK, and Australian markets. As far as the pricing goes, iPhone 8 (64GB) is available for $699 and 256GB is available for $849. At the same time, iPhone 8 Plus (64GB) can be bought for $799 and 256GB can be purchased for $1,329. Both the smartphones feature a glass back, complimented by an aluminum frame. They come with dust and water resistant capabilities. They carry the physical home button and bezel-filled display features forward from their predecessors.

Apple has introduced three primary color variants with iPhone 8 and 8 Plus

Silver, Space Grey, and Gold. The 3.5mm headphone jack is missing on both. Users will gain an enhanced audio experience, claims Apple.

To be specific, the 8 Plus features a 5.5-inch LCD full HD screen with 401 pixels-per-inch. In terms of dimensions, it measures 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3mm and weighs roughly 148 grams. Meanwhile, its younger sibling packs a 4.7-inch Retina HD display with 1334 x 750 pixels resolution. As noted by Tech Radar, both the smartphones are powered by the latest A11 “Bionic” chipset.

Apple hasn’t extended its RAM support and has decided to stick with 3GB with both. Another common aspect between the two is the Bluetooth 5 technology. Users are provided with the option of either choosing 64GB or 256GB of ROM.

In the camera department, the Apple Iphone 8 features a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera with support for 4K video at 60fps.

It can also stream 1080-pixels slow motion videos at 240fps. The 8 Plus packs a dual rear camera setup with two 12-megapixel sensors (telephoto, wide angle lens). Another massive advantage that iPhone 8 Plus has over its younger sibling is its support for wireless charging (AirPad). The firm also launched its 10th-anniversary iPhone X, which will be available for sale in November, stay tuned.
