0

Just after a week after going on sale in the home market, the Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be officially launched in India on September 29th. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be available from INR 64,000 onwards. The launch has also brought prices of the predecessors down, where the iPhone 7 (32GB) will now be available for INR 49,000, cheaper by INR 7,200.  And the iPhone 7 Plus (32GB) for INR 59,000, a reduction of  INR 8,300.

The iPhone 8 gets an all‑new glass design, where the back panel now embeds Wireless charging.  The device is precision-engineered at the microscopic level to protect against water, splashes and dust. Available in New space grey, silver and gold finishes, the front and back feature 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.

iPhone 8 features redesigned stereo speakers that are up to 25 per cent louder and deliver deeper bass. The Screens are new 4.7‑inch and 5.5‑inch Retina HD displays. Apple is boasting about animated emojis as the next big thing in texting.  Here are the tech specs and prices:
