At first glance, the iPhone 8 Plus looks exactly like its predecessor the iPhone 7 Plus. Other than having a new Gold colour and a back made of glass, the iPhone 8 does not have anything else changed on the exterior compared to the iPhone 7 Plus. The introduction of glass on the back of iPhone 8 Plus is the requirement to make the device capable of wireless charging.

As far as the hardware specifications of iPhone 8 are concerned, Apple should have named it as iPhone “7s”. Because the iPhone 8 Plus is all about adding more speed/power over its predecessor. Some of the key iPhone 8 Plus specs include a 12MP dual camera shooter with OIS and 5.5-inch HD True Tone display. Other specs include  4K video recording @60fps and the camera also supports Portrait mode and a new Lighting mode.
