iPhone 8 Plus


The iPhone 8 Plus (11th Generation) is a smartphone that was designed, manufactured, and sold by Apple from 2017 to 2020 as part of the iPhone series. This generation of iPhone has been introduced on September 12, 2017 and its price started at $349. The new iPhone features a Six-Core 2.4 GHz 64-bit Apple A11 Bionic processor with Three-Core graphics, Apple M11 motion coprocessor, 3 GB of RAM, 5.5″ Retina HD LED-backlit IPS multi-touch LCD Display with True Tone and 3D Touch technology, fingerprint identity Touch ID sensor built into the Home button, GPS, 4G / LTE data capability, four colors; Space Gray, Silver, Gold, and (PRODUCT) RED, 64 GB / 128 GB or 256 GB of flash memory, built-in Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC for Apple Pay, Lightning port, 12 Mpix rear camera + 12 Mpix rear telephoto camera / 7 Mpix front camera, three-axis gyro, accelerometer, Barometer, Digital compass, GLONASS, Galileo, and 21 hours of talk time on 3G and 384 hours Standby time. This iPhone has been discontinued on April 15, 2020 and has been replaced by the iPhone SE 2nd Generation.

The iPhone 8 Plus retains the Retina HD Display found in the iPhone 7, but they now feature True Tone technology, allowing for automatic screen adjustments based on surrounding ambient lighting. They can play HDR10 and Dolby Vision content despite not having an HDR-ready display, done by down-converting the HDR content to fit the display while still having some enhancements to dynamic range, contrast, and wide color gamut compared to standard content.

The iPhone 8 Plus contains the Apple A11 Bionic system-on-chip, a Hexa-core processor that the company says features two cores that are 25% faster than the iPhone 7‘s A10 processor and four cores that are 70% faster than the prior model. The phones also feature an Apple-designed graphics processing unit 30% faster than prior units, with the same level of performance as the A10 at half the power.

The iPhone 8 Plus upgrades the main camera for a wide-angle lens with up to 10× digital zoom or 2× optical zoom, and retains a second, telephoto lens similar to the one found on the iPhone 7 Plus, but with improved depth-of-field and lighting effects in Portrait mode.

The new iPhone has a 7 Mpix front camera with an f/2.2 aperture capable of capturing 1080p video at 30 frames per second and 720p video at 240 frames per second, along with face detection and high-dynamic-range. The iPhone 8 records videos with single channel audio (mono). Still, photos with 6.5 megapixels (3412×1920) can be captured during video recording.

iPhone 8 Plus has glass backs instead of the complete aluminum housing found on prior models, enabling the use of Qi inductive charging, and the phone is rated IP67 for water resistance and dust resistance.

Today iPhone 8 Plus is 4 years old!
