Are iPhones the item numbers of gadgets?

The world’s obsession with iPhones is like the Indian public’s predilection for item numbers – every year, a new one is manufactured and let loose in the market to overrun every other production in the same industry, while this latest version, when given a thought, is hardly any different from the one which came before it.

Apple has announced plans of launching iPhone 8 this September, and here are the upgrades in the gadget which will set it apart from last year’s release, the iPhone 7 Plus:


One of the biggest change expected is that in design. Along with thinner bezels, the iPhone 8 may replace its home button with the Touch ID built in into the display.


The iPhone 8 might feature OLED display as opposed to IPS LCD display supported by the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus.

Wireless And Fast Charging

The newest version of the iPhone might use USB Type-C to make the time taken to charge much less than what iPhone 7 Plus takes – about 3 hours and 30 minutes.

Processor And RAM

The iPhone 7 comes with 2 GB of RAM and A10 processor, which the company claims is the “most powerful chip ever in a smartphone.” The upgrade in the iPhone 8 chip will come in the form of an A11 processor and probably a higher RAM.

Color Options

It was speculated that the iPhone 7 could be available in a Deep Blue hue as well. Apple introduced two new colors for the iPhone 7: Jet Black and Black. This option of a  Deep Blue colour variant has been transferred to iPhone 8.

What remains the same? The camera, for one one thing!

“iPhone 7 Plus doesn’t have just one entirely new camera system — it has two. The same 12MP wide-angle camera that’s on iPhone 7 works with a 12MP telephoto camera that can get even closer. That means you can get higher-quality zoom from farther away. And with an all-new Portrait mode, portrait shots will look better than ever. Say hello to the world’s best photo op,” says Apple.

If rumors are to be believed, then the iPhone 8 as well as the iPhone 8 Plus will boast dual-lens camera setup.
