The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, featuring more advanced cameras with portrait mode, Portrait Light features and the highest quality video recording possible with a smartphone, offer wireless charging freedom and increased reality optimization that no other phone has ever offered.
New Glass and Aluminum Design
Using three colors, Space gray, silver and gold, iPhone 8 features a wonderful back design that is made from the most durable glass used in a smart phone. Produced with a seven-layer color process for precise shade and opacity, the glass coating offers rich color depth, aluminum frame water and tobacco resistance in the same color in aerospace and space industry standards.
The new 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch Retina HD displays, along with True Tone, adjust the white balance of the display to ambient light, creating a natural looking experience like paper. Featuring a vibrant and wide color gamut, the Retina HD display offers the most realistic colors you’ve ever seen in the smartphone world. The redesigned stereo speakers can sound up to 25 per cent louder and offer deeper bass. Thus, music, video and interviews become richer in terms of sound quality.
The most powerful and intelligent chip on a smartphone, the A11 Bionic offers industry leader performance and energy efficiency with six core modules from two high-performance cores 25 percent faster and four high-efficiency cores 70 percent faster than A10 Fusion. The new, second-generation performance control unit achieves up to 70 percent higher performance in multi-threaded workloads simultaneously exploiting the entire six core. In this way, customers can get the same great battery life with the same great power. The A11 Bionic also features an Apple-designed triple-core GPU that delivers up to 30 percent faster graphics performance than the previous generation. With all this power, incredible artificial learning technology, increased reality applications and immersive 3D games become possible.
The camera on the iPhone 8 Plus is specially tuned for the ultimate enhanced reality experience. Each camera was calibrated with new gyroscopes and accelerometers for precision movement tracking. The A11 Bionic CPU performs geographic tracking and ambient detection, while the GPU takes in incredible graphics at 60 fps, and the image signal processor also performs real-time lighting forecasting. Thanks to ARKit, iOS developers can take advantage of TrueDepth cameras and rear cameras to create games and applications that stretch beyond the screen and provide immersive and fluid experiences.
The world’s most popular camera; it’s even better with a 12 megapixel camera with a wider and faster sensor, a new color filter and deeper pixels. New image signal processor designed by Apple; advanced pixel processing, wide color capture, faster auto-focus under low light, and better HDR photography. The new True Tone Flash with four LEDs with Slow Sync allows you to create more evenly illuminated backgrounds and foregrounds. Thanks to all this, you get vibrant, realistic colors and more detailed impressive photos.
The new camera is also capable of shooting the highest quality video on a smart phone. With better video stabilization, you can record up to 60 frames of 4K video at a time and 1080p slow frames up to 240 frames per second. Apple-designed video codecs do real-time video and motion analysis for optimum video quality. Both the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus offer HEIF and HEVC support for compression of up to two frames with iOS 11 and twice as much storage of photos and videos.
The iPhone 8 Plus features two 12 megapixel camcorders; Portrait Light and Portrait bring the dramatic studio effects to the iPhone. Thus, customers can shoot impressive portraits with low depth of field in five different lighting styles.
The Portrait Light is based on basic photography lighting principles and research on portraiture art and art. It uses the dual camera and Apple’s image signal processor to recognize the scene and create a depth map to separate the subject from the background. Then artificial learning technology creates face markings and illuminates contours of the face. Thanks to these real-time transactions, customers can express themselves more strongly with their photographs.
Apple; Apple will offer a wide range of devices that can charge up to three devices at the same time, including new optional wireless charging cases for iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone X customers with optional Apple Watch Series 3 and AirPods, the design has shared preliminary information about AirPower.
iOS 11 also offers on-device learning capabilities to offer more natural and vibrant new male and female Siri sounds and more personal experiences.
iOS 11 also brings a boost to millions of iOS devices with a new platform that allows developers to embed virtual content onto real world scenes. With new male and female voices, Siri can translate English forms into Chinese, French, German, Italian or Spanish.
