The iPhone 8 Plus is officially here, and it turns out the long-rumored handset is what we'd previously thought would be the iPhone 7S Plus. It comes alongside the new iPhone 8 and super high-spec iPhone X.

Apple has dropped the S moniker from its range of phones and called this new upgrade the iPhone 8 Plus instead.

iPhone 8 Plus price

Apple has confirmed that the iPhone 8 Plus price will start at $799 ( (£799, AU$1,229). That's for the starting 64GB version, but we don't yet know how much the larger 256GB variant will be.

iPhone 8 Plus specsification

The new phone runs on the A11 Bionic chipset from Apple. It's a six-core chip that runs 25% faster than the A10 in the iPhone 7 Plus. As usual, Apple hasn't shared how much RAM will be in the iPhone 8 Plus.

Apple has also designed its own GPU for the A11 Bionic, which the company says will allow for 30% faster graphics than in the A10. There's also Bluetooth 5 tech built-in that allows for a faster connection and longer range than previous tech.

The iPhone 8 Plus will come with either 64GB or 256GB of storage onboard. The phone will also launch with the brand-new iOS 11 software.

Hello,

iPhone 8 and iPhone x both are different.

Here are the major differences between iPhone X vs iPhone 8

Design: The iPhone X is the design champ here, with that edge-to-edge screen and lack of a home-button. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are much more familiar. All the phones are IP67 rated, have glass backs for wireless charging and no headphone jack.

Specs: The new 10nm A11 chip powers both phones, though RAM has yet to be determined. The iPhone X gets the new OLED display, while the 8 and 8 Plus have to stick with IPS LCD.

Price: The iPhone 8 starts £/$699 for the smaller model for 64GB and £/$849 for the 256GB model. The 8 Plus is £/$100 more and the iPhone X starts at £/$999.

It looks exactly same to iPhone 8 Plus. They just added a glass back to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

Exactly my thoughts. If I buy the new iPhone 8/iPhone 8 Plus right now, it will be outdated in next 2 months as soon as the iPhone X will hit the market.
