iPhone 8 Release Date, Specs, And Price Revealed


At today’s Apple Event in California, USA, the company revealed its new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. The new devices will launch in the US on September 22, with pre-orders starting seven days earlier. iPhone 8 will start at $699/£699 for the 64GB model and $849/£849 for the 256GB model. The larger 8 Plus, meanwhile, will cost $799/£799 for 64GB and $949/£949 for 256GB.

The new device will include a new, faster chip and 12 MP dual rear cameras, and Apple said it has been designed with 3D apps and games in mind. Other features include AR functionality and wireless charging–simply place it on top of the charging device rather than plugging it in.

In addition, the phone will ship with a new “Retina HD” display, as well as new speakers that are 25% louder than before. The company drew particular attention to the cameras, which will apparently capture the highest quality video ever in a smartphone, including 4K video. iPhone 8 will feature a 4.7″ display, and 8 Plus a 5.5″ one.

The company called the new device “a huge step forward for iPhone,” 10 years after the original model launched worldwide.
