Apple lovers were in for a treat!
For months we’ve been circulating rumors and imagery about the new front face of the iPhone 8? Well, it’s officially called the iPhone X! What about the phones rumored to be called iPhone 7S and 7S Plus? That’s tofficially he iPhone 8 and 8 Plus!
Read on as we give you the rundown of the Apple Event!
First up are the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
The iPhone 8 has a 4.7” widescreen LCD Multi-Touch display with a 1334-by-750 pixel resolution at 326 ppi, while the iPhone 8 Plus sports a 5.5” widescreen LCD Multi-Touch display and a 1920-by-1080 resolution at 401 ppi.
Both phone displays have the Retina HD Display with True Tone Technology, they’re powered by the ultra powerful A11 Bionic Chip and they are calibrated for Augmented Reality. The iPhone 8 Plus has dual cameras, Portrait mode and Portrait Lighting (although still in beta)

Here we have to say goodbye to the Touch ID. The iPhone X now has a remarkable Face ID that is enabled by a sensor array called the TruDepth Camera for facial recognition. Other than unlocking your phone, this will be used for Apple Pay and stunning selfies! Like the iPhone 8 Plus, this also has the Portrait Mode and Portrait Lighting.
Augmented Reality is also pushed for this phone. One notable new feature is the Animoji! Check the Apple website for the most detailed account of all specifications.
