Recollecting some key specs, both the iPhones sports Retina HD displays with True Tone feature that adjust the white balance of the display to match the surrounding light for a more natural, paper-like viewing experience. The iPhone 8 features a 4.7-inch screen, while the iPhone 8 Plus features a 5.5-inch display.
On the camera front, the iPhone 8 Plus features dual-camera setup at the rear panel. The cameras come with a combination of 12-megapixel wide angle lens with aperture f/1.8 and 12-megapixel telephoto lens with aperture f/2.8 with OIS, quad-LED True Tone flash. The iPhone 8 sports a single 12-megapixel sensor at the rear panel.
The new camera also delivers the highest quality video capture ever in a smartphone with better video stabilization, 4K video up to 60fps and 1080p slo-mo up to 240fps. The Apple-designed video encoder provides real-time image and motion analysis for optimal quality video.
