iPhone 8 PLUS PRICE IN 2017 AND ITS SPECIFICATIONS:

It’s very difficult to tell the difference between iPhone 7 Plus, 6S Plus and 6 Plus. The newer model differs in outer look with a glass back. Its glass back creates a two-tone effect. This is the only outer visible difference in all of these models. But as iPhone 8 is the product of Apple, you must be having the confidence that they must not have manufactured a new product just for the sake of it. And you are right also.

Basically, three things are empowered in iPhone 8 and these are (a) Camera (b) Battery and (c) Screen. We will discuss all of these three. But before, let us know the price of this amazing phone. iPhone 8 plus prize is quite high and depends on the version you choose. iPhone 8 Plus comes in two versions: 64 GB and 256 GB. In India, the 64 GB version costs about Rs. 68,999 to 71,000 and 256 GB version costs about Rs. 82,999 to 85,899. I don’t know why they have not launched a middle version (128 GB) phone.

iPhone 8 Plus design is unique and gives an aesthetic feel. The gold version of the phone really steals the show. It has a golden aluminum rim which mixes well with the white/gold glass back. This gives iPhone 8 Plus a luxurious effect. Aesthetics is not the only reason for keeping the glass back. Empowering the wireless charging on the phone is also one of the reasons. If the iPhone Plus case had come with a wireless charging pad, there could be nothing more attractive than that. But one has to buy the charging pad from Belkin or Mophie. Apple’s AirPower pad soon to be launch.

iPhone 8 Plus now has a 5.5-inch HD display screen with IPS LCD Panel. It has the standard resolution of 1080*1920 and the pixel density of 401 PPI. To protect the screen from the daily damage it has been coated with a layer of Sapphire crystal glass. The A11 chipset of iPhone 8 plus comes with a 3 GB of RAM and 64 or 256 GB of internal memory. As most of the modern phones come with a non-removable Li-ion battery, iPhone 8 Plus also follows the similar path. It has a battery of 2,675 mAh power. Its fingerprint sensor is mounted on the front and works as a home button.

 

iPhone 8 Plus camera is again same as iPhone 8, but there is a new feature attached to it. The 12 MP dual-sensor rear camera is able to use dubbed Portrait Lighting in its enhanced bokeh mode. The new A11 Bionic can now change the lighting dynamically. Portrait mode is the feature which has got an upgrade on this phone. Apart from this, its camera is able to perform all the major tasks like autofocus, 2* optical zoom, flashing (quad-LED) etc.

Its camera can take superb videos. It records the 1080p and 2160p camera at 30fps and 720p camera 240fps. This frame speed is best to record slo-mo videos. Its secondary camera is also not a week and is of 7-megapixel with a support for HDR, face detection and panorama.

Augmented reality (AR) has always been the most curious thing for Apple. Apple has implemented these AR effects in iPhone 8 Plus, but it is somewhat flawed. It may be because the manufacturers also need to learn a lot about it.
