iPhone 8 Plus introduces an all‑new glass design, front and back, the iPhone 8 Plus features custom glass with a 50 per cent deeper strengthening layer. A new steel substructure and a stronger, aerospace‑grade 7000 Series aluminium band provide additional reinforcement and an oleophobic coating lets you easily wipe off smudges and fingerprints. The iPhone 8 Plus is designed with colour-matched, aerospace‑grade aluminium band and precision‑engineered to resist water and dust.
The 5.5-inch (diagonal) widescreen LCD Multi-Touch display with IPS technology, offers true Tone technology with an advanced four‑channel ambient light sensor to subtly adjust the white balance onscreen to match the colour temperature of the light around you. With a wide colour gamut and our best colour accuracy ever, everything on the screen looks more brilliant and vibrant. Dual‑domain wide viewing pixels give you a great view of the screen from almost any angle.
Capture the moment perfectly thanks to a wide‑angle camera with an ƒ/1.8 six‑element lens, optical image stabilization, and a larger, faster 12MP sensor. It also has a powerful ƒ/2.8 telephoto camera. Together these two cameras enable optical zoom and Portrait mode. Portrait mode on iPhone 8 Plus gets even better for sharper foregrounds and more naturally blurred backgrounds. With Retina Flash, wide color capture, advanced pixel technology, and auto image stabilization, the 7MP FaceTime HD camera shoots selfies that stand out.
With a glass back and an embedded wireless charging system, iPhone 8 Plus is designed for a wireless future (wireless chargers sold separately). The built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery offers up to 21 hours talk time and is fast-charge capable (Up to 50% charge in 30 minutes.)
Housing the most powerful Apple chip to date, the A11 Bionic houses four efficiency cores that are up to 70 per cent faster than A10 Fusion and two performance cores that are up to 25 per cent faster. The CPU can even harness all six cores simultaneously when you need a turbo boost. With the A11 Bionic chip, AR games and apps reach a new level of fluidity and realism. A second‑generation performance controller also provides more power when you need it, while delivering the same great battery life on the go.
