After hours and set-top boxes, Apple introduced the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, for the first time, changing its well-established principle of naming.
Apple claims that the design of the device brand new, but perfectly clear that this is the same for iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, but now with a glass cover and with new colors.
Heart is a SoC Apple A11 Bionic. It contains a 64-estradnyi six-core processor and consists of 6.4 billion transistors. The processor has two high-performance cores (25% more powerful than the previous one) and four energy-efficient (75% more powerful than the previous). What is more important is the presence of A11 Bionic graphics processor by Apple. It is 30% faster than the GPU in the A10, and for the same performance consumes twice less energy.
The main camera is based on a new 12-megapixel sensor. Optical stabilization in both versions. The iPhone 8 Plus two 12-megapixel module with a lens aperture of F/1.8 and F/2.8. Apple says the improved algorithms with dual camera. FOR example, we learned how to identify the main subject, shot in portrait mode, and highlight it in a separate layer or overlay filters, removing the background. As claimed rumors, the smartphone can shoot 4K video at 60 fps and Full HD at 240 fps.
The displays remained unchanged, if we talk about the diagonals of 4.7 and 5.5 inches. The solution Apple has not indicated, so the news will be updated after the release of the relevant information on the website of the company.
Apple paid particular time to support augmented reality, but we have already seen during the presentation of the new iPad. It looks really impressive, but the question is, when something like this will become available to users.
Yes, the new Apple’s smartphone has received support wireless charging (Qi). However, it’s just wireless charging, is no different from similar solutions from other manufacturers. My memory has not provided as claimed the recent rumors.
Smartphones, interestingly, is available only in versions with 64 or 256 GB of flash memory. The starting price for younger model — 700 $ high — $ 800. For many, it will be important the fact that the iPhone is now available in white color. In addition, there are charcoal gray and gold (pink gold).
