Yesterday was the most important day in the history of Apple, the world’s leading electronic maker, as the company launched not one but four much awaited products along with an update to the Apple 3 LTE Watch in a LIVE event at the Steve Jobs Theater, California. 

The event was to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Apple and the company made it big and loud by launching its magical iPhone 8 Smart Phone. Not just iPhone 8, in store at the event were three other superb products, including iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus, a 4K Apple TV and an update to the Apple 3 LTE Watch.

What’s New: Now, if you are curious to know what’s so new and exciting about the iPhone 8 smart phone, read on! This new phone will incorporate the latest wireless charging technology that enables the user to easily charge it by simply putting it on a power pad. 

This is, in fact, the first time that such an innovative technology has been used in an iPhone model. Besides this, the phone is in limelight for its new iOS 11 OS that will offer the user to use a range of exciting features like Apple Pay for an overall enhanced multitasking experience.

Design: Now, let us throw some light on the designing of this new iPhone 8 Smart Phone. Although, this newly launched phone looks quite identical to the old iPhone 7 model, yet there are some interesting twists in its designing. Keeping the latest tradition in terms of designs, iPhone 8 Smart Phone too comes with an amazing bezel-less display, perfectly in harmony with the glass back panel. 

The designing of this phone has been carefully done using a laser welded steel along with copper to make it completely water and dust resistant. At the same time, during the launch, officials of Apple claimed that this phone is going to sport the most durable glass ever used in a smart phone.

Display: As far as the display screen of this new iPhone 8 Smart Phone is considered, we are a bit disappointed, as it has just a 4.7 inch Retina HD display! While, all other Apple’s competitors are now bringing forth smart phones with 5.5” or more size out, we are surprised why Apple chose to stick to a mere 5”! 

The phone, however, has beautiful resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels despite its average screen size. Apart from this, the phone sports a Capacitive Touchscreen.

Camera Specifications: Now, comes the most interesting part about any smart phone. Yes, now we will acquaint you with the camera specifications of the yesterday launched iPhone 8 Smart Phone. The cameras on this superb phone are specially designed for AR or Augmented Reality Effects. This amazing phone incorporates a marvellous 12 MP Dual Primary Camera on the rear side. 

In terms of video recording, the phone promises to offer a spectacular 4K@60fps along with 3840 x 2160 @30fps, 1920 x 1080@120 fps and 1280 x 720@240 fps options for video recording. This is not all, you can very well enjoy other latest camera features on iPhone 8 Smart Phone like Geo Tagging, Touch Focus, Continuous Shooting, 4K Video and HDR Mode.

Battery: Here, again, Apple seems to disappoint many in terms of the battery capacity. While, we were all expecting it to feature a battery no less than 4000mAh capacity, iPhone 8 Smart Phone comes with mere 2700mAh battery capacity. 

This much hyped phone will incorporate a non removable Li-Po battery that could have been better for those who need more power throughout the day for multitasking. However, Apple officials believe that this battery will give 2 hours more life to this new phone as compared to the old iPhone 7.

Processor: Coming back to the most important part of the recently launched iPhone 8 Smart Phone, we would mention that this phone will get the latest iOS 11 on September 19th, 2017. Besides this, this much awaited phone will be powered by a 64-bit A11 Bionic Processor Chipset that is expected to run at least 30% faster than the previously used A10 CPU. 

Moreover, the A11 Processor will give the phone the much required efficiency for AR apps and games.

RAM & Internal Storage: Thankfully, the RAM on this latest iPhone 8 Smart Phone is worth a mention. The phone is available in an amazing 4 GB RAM model. On the other hand, the choice is yours, whether you wish to pick this phone with 64 GB or 256 GB Inbuilt Memory, as it will be available in all three internal memory variants. 

Although, 64 GB is sufficient to save and store all your precious data, but if your pocket permits and your requirement is more, we suggest you to go for a higher internal memory option for buying iPhone 8 Smart Phone. Remember, the price will be higher for higher internal memory models.

SIM: Apple has disappointed many interested buyers by again making its new iPhone 8 Smart Phone, a single SIM phone. The phone supports single Nano SIM, which seems totally out of the order in today’s world, when most people have at least two SIM cards. 

We hoped for a dual SIM phone this time from Apple and the wait is still on. Hopefully, the company will take care of this in its next launches.

Connectivity: If you are eagerly waiting to know what kinds of connectivity options one can enjoy on this new iPhone 8 Smart Phone, then your wait is going to be over now! 

In the launch event, Apple announced that the phone will offer spectacular connectivity with a series of networks like GPRS, EDGE, Bluetooth a 4.2, VoLTE, 3G, 4G, WiFi, Hotspot, USB v3.0, GLONASS GPS. At the moment, this phone will not support NFS.

Multimedia Support: We also got to know about the marvellous multimedia support offered on this recently launched Apple iPhone 8 Smart Phone. It offers full support to a range of Video Players like MPEG4, MP4, M4V, H.264 and AAC-LC. 

In terms of audio players, the phone supports AAC, AIFF, Apple Lossless, MP3 VBR, HE-AAC and WAV formats. On the other hand, iPhone 8 Smart Phone is not going to cater support for playing FM Radio.

Other Features: iPhone 8 Smart Phone also features other remarkable features like the latest Fingerprint Sensor for enhanced security on the access of your precious data on your phone. 

Besides this, the phone comes with an essential Quick Charging Mode for a quick charge within minutes for at least half day operations without interruption.

Price & Availability: This much awaited iPhone 8 model will be available for pre-order from September 15th, 2017, while September 22nd, 2017 is the date, when it will be actually available in the global markets. 

In the launch event, Apple announced that its iPhone 8 model will cost £649 for its 64 GB variant and £849 for its 256 GB variant. You are, on the other hand, free to pick this amazing phone from the house of Apple in colors like Silver, Gold Finish and Space Grey.
