To recap, the iPhone 8 series is an evolution of the previous gen iPhone 7. While looking a lot like its predecessor, it now comes with a super durable glass body that enables wireless charging.
Under the hood is where the magic lies, with a spanking new Apple A11 Bionic chip, the most powerful mobile SoC in the market today.
The 4.7-inch iPhone 8 rocks an all-new 12MP sensor with deeper pixels, colour filter and wider dynamic range, coupled with a f/1.8 aperture lens with OIS.
The bigger 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus has a dual-camera 12MP setup, comprising a f/1.8 wide-angle lens and f/2.8 telephoto lens, with both featuring OIS.
The two devices run the latest iOS 11 and they come in Space Grey, Silver and new Gold.
