Keynote del iPhone X, el iPhone 8 y el Apple Watch Series 3: resumen de todo lo que se ha presentado
The rumors have been confirmed and finally, the iPhones we knew until now have been updated, with a slightly thicker glass back than the current equipment, but which essentially maintains a similar air in terms of design to the iPhones currently available on the market.
The latest in design
As rumored, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus retain many of the design features of the iPhone 7, iPhone 6s, and iPhone 6, except for the back theme , which has a slightly thicker glass enclosure than its predecessors . Also, the device has no trace of the 3.5mm jack, and the devices initially come in white, black, and gold copper.
As for its screen, both devices have a panel of 4.7 and 5.5 inches respectively , of course with frames and Retina display technology with True Tone, so the OLED has been reserved exclusively for the iPhone X.
Now let’s go to the hardware news
Of course this point can be crucial for many users, when choosing a phone. For this reason, we tell you that the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will have SIX-core CPUs and a powerful A11 Bionic processor inside, which according to Apple is the most powerful chip that any other phone has, and is 70% more efficient than the A10. On the other hand, the RAM memory of each one is different, so the iPhone 8 has 2GB, while the iPhone 8 Plus is more powerful in that sense and stays with 3GB.
Here we also have to talk about storage capacity, which is 32, 120 and 256 GB, so there are still several options to choose from for the most demanding users.
Lights, cameras and action!
This may be the section that most appeals to many users. In this opportunity, we tell you that the back cameras are 12 Mpx, while the front ones have 7 Mpx, ideal for lovers of selfies. In addition, both versions have optical stabilization and, in the case of the iPhone 8 Plus, we find two new sensors, with openings of 1.8 and 2.8. On the other hand, Apple assures that the Bionic chip also has a new hardware video encoder, faster and more powerful.
Hello, wireless charging!
As rumors have it, Apple has finally announced the arrival of wireless charging on iPhone 8. As we saw during the presentation, is a circle-shaped base , which, thanks to the iPhone 8’s rear glass finish, allows us to charge the device.
Price and availability
According to Cupertino’s company, the iPhone 8 will be available from $699, while the price of the iPhone 8 Plus starts at $799. Of course, it all depends on the configuration that users choose in terms of storage capacity. Devices can be pre-ordered from Friday, September 15th and deliveries will start from September 22nd .
