Here he is! Eagerly awaited by fans of the apple brand (as always), the new iPhone 8 is finally here! It has become a habit now, it is accompanied by its version XXL, the iPhone 8 Plus. But the real novelty of this year is the simultaneous presentation of the iPhone X.
This is written X, but it is necessary to pronounce “ten” or “ten”. Presented as the “smartphone of the future”, the iPhone X allows Apple to celebrate 10 years of the release of the first iPhone.

What evolutions for the iPhone 8?
But before discussing the case of the iPhone X, we are interested in the new phone “basic”, the iPhone 8, and the iPhone 8 Plus. The “small model” inherits a new IPS LCD Retina screen of 4.7 inches for the iPhone 8, against 5.5 inches for his big brother.
Powered by the new iOS 11 and equipped with a chip A11 “Bionic”, the iPhone 8 will have to contain a simple 12Mpx sensor with optical stabilization for his camera and a RAM memory of 2GB. This figure climbs to 3GB for the iPhone 8 plus, which also entitles a dual photo sensor (with aperture f / 1.8 and f / 2.8).
Ultra-high definition is synonymous with the ability to shoot in 4K at 60 frames per second, but also switch to slow motion at 240 frames per second.
It should be noted that autonomy should be slightly higher than the previous generation, that the device should be water and splash resistant (IP67 certification) and that the storage capacity varies from 64 to 256 GB.
In short, overall, the iPhone 8 evolves relatively little compared to the iPhone 7, both in terms of performance and design (obviously the TouchD fingerprint scanner in front) … so well that some critics have held to saying that Apple should have called this iPhone 7S smartphone.
Available on September 22, 2017, the iPhone 8 will be offered for 809 dollars and the iPhone 8 Plus from 919 dollars.
The iPhone X, the “one more thing” of the year
However, if the iPhone 8 disappointed more than one, it is because Apple had a little trick, in addition, to present to its keynote. “One more thing,” as they say there. This little trick is, as expected, the new iPhone X, the premium model designed to celebrate the 10 years of the first iPhone.
If it is announced as “the smartphone of the future”, one would tend to think that this title is a bit exaggerated. Nevertheless, there is no question of denying the innovative character of this toy. Starting with face recognition Face recognition, which allows the iPhone X to recognize its user in all circumstances. Even in the dark and even if, it wears glasses or change of hairstyle.
Besides that, the iPhone X also houses the new generation of chips A11 Bionic and will obviously work under iOS 11, with 3 GB of Ram and a storage of 64 or 256 GB. The device is equipped with a beautiful screen 5.8 inch Super Retina HDR10 OLED, with a resolution of 2436×1125 pixels. Its imposing size has made it possible to make disappear the Home button, giving birth to a phone with borderless design, mixing glass and aluminum. Unquestionably, it is a success.
Apple also announces an exceptional photographic quality, with a new optical stabilization system and a dual 12-megapixel vertical sensor.
Finally, the iPhone X is also distinguished by its system of recharging wireless Qi (also proposed on the iPhone 8). This innovation allows Apple to release at the same time its charger AirPower, also compatible with the brand new Apple Watch.
It will be necessary to have a nice Budget since this model is presented like “the most expensive of the world”: proposed from 999 dollars to the USA, it will be sold in France at 1159 dollars for the 64GB version and squarely 1329 dollars for the 256GB version.
