iPhone 8 8plus silver space gray Ross gold glass back.
The iPhone 8 is here
It comes in silver, space gray and a new gold finish that looks like a mix between gold and rose gold. These phones are sealed to be water and dust resistant. Apple also announced the iPhone X at the same conference, a new, premium model with a screen that fills the front of the device. Read more in our separate post.There’s a new retina HD display. It has true tone technology like the most recent iPad Pro. It adapts to ambient light. Speakers are 25 percent louder and have deeperbass. Inside, it has an A11 Bionic chip. It is a 64-bit chip with two high-performance cores that are 25 percent faster than the A10 in the iPhone 7, and 4 high-efficiency cores that are 70 percent faster than the ones in the A10 (the A10 only had two high-efficiency cores). The GPU part is 30 percent faster.
The camera sensor and processor are brand new. It works better in low light condition, and has some noise reduction technology. The two sensors on the back of the iPhone 8 Plus are f1.8 and f2.8 apertures — it is brighter than the iPhone 7 Plus. There are new color filters too, which should make colors pop more, according to SVP of Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller.iPhone 8 gets Portrait Lighting
New dual-camera feature called “Portrait Lighting”: the dual cameras sense depth and rework the lighting while you compose the shot.
Go, Wireless!Schiller emphasises that the future is wireless. iPhone 8 has LTE Advanced, BT 5.0 and a glass back for wireless charging!
Apple then explained portait mode. It detects depth so that it can intelligently change the lighting effect on your face independently of the background. When it comes to video, it supports faster frame rates. You can expect 4K videos at 60 frames per second. For slo-mo videos, your 1080 videos will have 240 frames per second. So it should be even slower motion.These cameras and the A11 Bionic chip have been calibrated for augmented reality. Schiller demoed the MLB At Bat app. Now, you can point your phone at the field and it’ll tell you who’s playing right now in front of you. Directive Games showed a demo of a tabletop game that takes advantage of ARKit. You can move your phone around to see the game unfolding on the table in front of you. It looks quite convincing, but it’s unclear if game developers are going to take advantage of ARKit or if it’s going to end up being a gimmick like the Wiimote.
