The tech giant Apple, Inc has just announced the release of the new iPhone 8, 8 Plus and the new iPhone X. Their sleek design and impressive styling will surely give Apple fans something to salivate over.
The new iPhone 8 has an all glass design and Apple is calling it, “The most durable glass ever in a smartphone”. Apple will have a variety of finishes for the phone including, new space gray, silver, and gold finishes.
For the clumsy folk like myself, Apple offers protection technology that is applied to the phone which will make it resistant to water and dust. This is great because if you drop your new expensive iPhone in the toilette you might have a chance of saving it. But keep in mind the over time the new iPhone will become less resistance to water and dust as a result of normal wear.
The days of wired charging will soon come to an end and the new iPhone 8 will be compatible with wireless charging. The phone will come with two optional display sizes, 4.7 and 5.5 inch retina HD displays.
A 12 megapixel camera equips the phone and it will be sure to satisfy the avid selfie-taker. According to Apple, “All‑New Sensor iPhone 8 features a more advanced 12MP camera. With a larger, faster sensor. A new color filter. Deeper pixels. And optical image stabilization for photos and videos.”
At the heart of the phone will be the,” A11 Bionic. With four efficiency cores that are up to 70 percent faster than A10 Fusion. And two performance cores that are up to 25 percent faster”.
Apple announced that the iPhone 8 would go up for pre-order on September 15, ahead of a final release date of September 22.
The iPhone X is where it really gets interesting. Here we have an all-screen phone with the size of 5.8 inches, meaning you have more real estate to play with such as watching movies or scrolling through Facebook.
A cool feature that the phone has is the Face ID with its enhanced camera technology it can reliably detect the contours of your face,” It projects and analyzes more than 30,000 invisible dots to create a precise depth map of your face”, states the Apple website.
The avid selfier will enjoy the benefits of the 12 megapixel dual cameras that have the ability take studio quality photos according to Apple.
At the core of the device is the A11 processor which is the same one that the iPhone 8 comes with. Wireless charging is another fancy feature that comes with the iPhone X. The iPhone X will be running iOS11 which should run seamlessly with the new A11 chip.
The MSRP on this phone is around $999.99
