iPhone 8 introduces an all‑new glass design, front and back. The front and back feature custom glass with a 50 per cent deeper strengthening layer. A new steel substructure and a stronger, aerospace‑grade 7000 Series aluminium band provide additional reinforcement and an oleophobic coating lets you easily wipe off smudges and fingerprints. A colour-matched, aerospace‑grade aluminium band and precision‑engineered to resist water and dust, the iPhone 8 is designed at the microscopic level.
The 4.7-inch (diagonal) widescreen LCD Multi-Touch display with IPS technology offers true Tone technology with an advanced four‑channel ambient light sensor to subtly adjust the white balance onscreen to match the colour temperature of the light around you. With a wide colour gamut and our best colour accuracy ever, everything on the screen looks more brilliant and vibrant. Dual‑domain wide viewing pixels give you a great view of the screen from almost any angle.
The wide‑angle camera on iPhone 8 is the same one found in iPhone 8 Plus — featuring an ƒ/1.8 six‑element lens, optical image stabilisation, and a larger, faster 12MP sensor. With Retina Flash, wide colour capture, advanced pixel technology and auto image stabilisation, the 7MP FaceTime HD camera shoots selfies that stand out. Introducing a new sensor and powering it with A11 Bionic, the iPhone 8 makes advanced photographic techniques easy and automatic.
We’ve always intended iPhone to be a truly wireless device, free from charging cables and headphone cords. With a glass back and an embedded wireless charging system, iPhone 8 is designed for a wireless future (wireless chargers sold separately). The built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery offers up to 14 hours talk time and is fast-charge capable (Up to 50% charge in 30 minutes.)
Powered by the most powerful Apple chip to date, the A11 Bionic houses four efficiency cores that are up to 70 per cent faster than A10 Fusion and two performance cores that are up to 25 per cent faster. The CPU can even harness all six cores simultaneously when you need a turbo boost. A second‑generation performance controller provides more power when you need it, while delivering the same great battery life on the go. With the A11 Bionic chip, AR games and apps reach a new level of fluidity and realism.
