iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X: Specification, features and price
After the official launch of iPhone now all rumors have been cleared. Apple fans from around the globe were eagerly waiting for the new iPhones. Apple was being criticized for not making any remarkable changes to its phones.
Keeping that in mind apple launched an exclusive design phone, iPhone X with all screen display and it looks stunning! While the iPhone 8 & 8 plus are the upgrades of the 7 & 7 plus respectively.
Firstly starting with the successor of iPhone 7 and 7 plus, the new iPhone 8 & 8 plus are very much similar to the iPhone 7 & 7 plus with more feature and powerful hardware. The premium look and feel of apple has been its trademark in the smartphone market which it beautifully maintained.
This time apple has ditched the 3.5mm audio jack from all their modals.

The iPhone 8 has a screen size of 4.7 inches LED backlit retina HD display with 326ppi. The phone weighs 148 gram and has a thickness of just 7.3mm. The iPhone 8 is IP67 waterproof and dust proof.
While the iPhone 8 plus has a screen size of 5.5 inches FHD display with 401ppi. The iPhone 8 plus is heaviest among the all weighing 202 grams! The iPhone 8 plus is also IP67 water and dust proof.

The iPhone 8 plus has dual camera at the back horizontally aligned, consisting two 12 MP sensors. Optical image stabilization is also present along with digital zoom upto 10x. Again iPhone 8 plus provides 7 MP Selfie shooter with new features.
Hardware and Specification
Both iPhone 8 & 8 plus comes with new processor called the A11 Bionic chip and also has an embedded M11 motion coprocessor. Apple loves to keep few things behind the veil as they did not reveal the RAM of any device. But it is being expected that iPhone 8 will have 2GB RAM and iPhone 8 plus 3GB RAM.
Both devices come in 64GB & 256GB variants and as usual neither of them is expandable through SD card. Another great thing added by apple is wireless charging for both iPhone 8 & 8 plus.
Both iPhones have apple TouchID for secure authentication which requires your fingerprint to unlock your device.
As far as software is concerned both will run on IOS 11 so both will have almost same user experience.
iPhone 8 being the cheapest (not really) among all will cost you 699 Euro (Rs.54000) and iPhone 8 plus will cost you 799 Euro (Rs.61000).
Till now what we have discussed is not very much different from the old iPhone 7 & 7 plus. The innovation and WOW factor is the new iPhone X which got all the latest tech from apple.
Now talking about the high end iPhone X, it is all screen phone except the top little portion which houses the front camera and sensors, everything is FHD OLED retina display (5.8 inches) with 458ppi. The iPhone X weighs 174 gram and has thickness of 7.7mm.
For iPhone X there is no touchID and a new 3D face recognition technique has been used to unlock your device which will use your face to unlock and pay. It does not matter if you got new hair style or your look changes or you are in complete dark it will still recognize you.
The beast also offers HDR and DOLBY Vision compatibility which neither 8 nor 8 plus offers.
The camera of iPhone X has nothing different from 8 plus except it is vertically aligned. iPhone X has dual camera of 12MP with optical stabilization and digital zoom of 10x. Front camera is of 7MP which is same as both 8 & 8 plus except it also has 3D facial recognition technique.
Hardware is same for all i.e. iPhone X also has A11 Bionic chip and also has an embedded M11 motion coprocessor. As mentioned earlier apple still has not revealed the RAM size for any iPhone.
Storage options are 64GB and 256GB. It also has wireless charging. The software for X is IOS 11 which is same as 8 and 8 plus but with couple of extra features. The iPhone X is IP67 water and dust proof too like iphone 8 & 8 plus.
iPhone X is the most expensive iPhone ever costing a whopping 999 Euro (Rs.78000).
As we can see that there is not much difference between iPhone 8 and iPhone X except couple of additional features in X. The only thing we believe will make iPhone X irresistible is its full edge to edge screen with HDR and DOLBY compatibility, while rest is same for all.
