iPhone 8 Specs
Before listing the deals, let’s first take a closer look at the iPhone 8. Here’s what you can expect:
- Design and build: The iPhone 8 measures 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3mm, and weighs 148g. It features a “strengthened” glass rear with the ever-present mirrored Apple logo at the upper center, and camera and flash sticking out a bit at the top left side. Apple did away with the antenna bands and instead reduced it to small strips at the bottom sides. The power button and SIM card tray can be found on the right spine, volume controls and silent toggle in the left spine, and the Lightning port flanked in two sides by the speaker and microphone on the bottom spine. It comes in gold, silver, and space grey.
- Display/screen: The iPhone 8 has a 4.7 Retina HD display with a sub FHD (1334 x 750) resolution, and True Tone Technology – which allows the phone to detect the user’s ambient lighting and adjust the phone’s white balance display accordingly. Additionally, the phone features a wider color range for better color reproduction, and dual-domain pixels for wider viewing angles. It also has 3D Touch and an oleophobic coating to minimize smudges.
iPhone 8 Release
- Processor: Under its hood, the iPhone 8 features Apple’s most powerful mobile chipset to date – the A11 Bionic chipset. It can power augmented-reality experiences, provide great performance in playing games and using heavy apps – all without consuming too much of your battery power.
- Battery and Charging: The iPhone 8 is the first Apple phone that offers wireless charging – which is also the main reason of using glass in its rear side. It is compatible with Qi-certified wireless chargers, and will have its own AirPower mat in 2018. On the other hand, it features a 1,821mAh battery.

- Cameras and Photography: Apple boosted the 8’s camera specifications too, by featuring a single rear-facing 12MP camera – which has a larger, faster processor that has 0 shutter lag and performs great in low-light conditions. The lens also has a new color filter, “deeper” pixels, and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) for both photo and video. In the video department, the iPhone 8 is the first smartphone that’s able to record 4K at 60fps. On the other hand, nothing much changed in the iPhone 8’s front-facing camera – with its 7MP and f2.2 aperture. In spite of this, the iPhone 8 Plus offers the same upgraded front-facing camera as the iPhone X, which offers front-facing portrait mode capabilities.
- Software: Of course, the iPhone 8 uses Apple’s newest mobile operating system – the iOS11. The new iOS offers a number of new features, such as the Files app and support for the ARKit – which can power high-end augmented reality experiences.
