Coming to the specifications, the iPhone 8 Plus sports a 5.5-Inch retina HD screen, whereas the iPhone 8 sports a more compact 4.7-Inch retina HD display. The smartphones sport a True Tone display that automatically adjusts the screen based on the ambient light in the room, to offer more accurate colors. Both the iPhones are powered by an A11 Bionic Hexa core SoC, which Apple claims are 25 percent faster than A10 Fusion. There are also four efficiency cores, and Apple says these are 70 percent faster than the A10 Fusion.

Coming to the camera, the new iPhone 8 sports a 12MP rear-facing camera with optical image stabilization, whereas the iPhone 8 Plus features two 12MP dual-lens cameras and introduces Portrait mode with Portrait Lighting.

Both the phones' cameras come with support for 4K video recording at 60fps and 1080p slo-mo up to 240fps. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus support HEIF and HEVC video formats.

Apple claims that both the iPhone 8 and the 8 Plus cameras are tuned for AR, as they are said to be individually calibrated, with new gyroscopes and accelerometers for accurate motion tracking. The new A11 processor handles world tracking and scene recognition.
