Well, the rumor mill has already started churning and internet has flooded over with the iPhone news and rumors. So accumulating all the information and gathering all the news we got from our close sources we have prepared this article on iPhone 8 features and specs.

List of Best iPhone 8 Features (Probable)
Apple is increasing the display size with each new model of the iPhone. As iPhone 7 comes with a 4.7-inch screen, it is expected that iPhone 8 will sport a 5.2-inch screen. On the other hand, the bigger version of this coveted handset, iPhone 8S may come with a 5.7-inch screen size.
As per the display technology is concerned Apple is all set to introduce the OLED (organic light-emitting diode) display, discarding the traditional IPS display, in iPhone 8. The biggest advantage the OLED display offers is improved brightness as well as better and wider viewing angle. The OLED display can work perfectly without the ‘backlight’, improves battery life, and the color density in such display is more vivid than the IPS display technology.
If we talk about the pixel resolution, iPhone 8 is likely to come with the 4K display with 4096 × 2160 pixel resolution and surely will be protected by the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 5 technology.
What’s Interesting: Apple iPhone 8 Release Date
The iPhone users have always complained about their handset’s storage capacity as the US-based tech giant does not provide any option to use an external microSD card on their handsets. So to satisfy their customers, Apple is going to launch the iPhone 8 in different variants according to the storage capacity. While the premium model is expected to house a staggering 256GB of internal storage, the basic model will come with 64GB of internal space.
The camera and its quality have always been a suit for Apple and iPhone. The iPhone 7 flaunts a 12-megapixel camera in its rear end, which may be upgraded to 15-megapixels in its upcoming version. The primary camera will come with the autofocus, optical image stabilization,4K-recording capabilities along with the upgraded ISOCELL sensors to take crystal clear images even in the low lights. Apart from that, according to various reports, Apple is also working on to introduce the dual sensor technology in the iPhone 8, which will help the users to snap clear images of the moving bodies.
On the secondary camera front, the iPhone 7 boasts of a 7-megapixel front camera. As per our close sources the iPhone 8 could come with an 8-megapixel front camera with the face detection, OIS and HDR capabilities.
Processor, RAM and OS
The new iPhone 8 will be powered by the all-new A11 chip. This will be the processor on the bigger iPhone 8 with the OLED display as well as the smaller 4.7 and 5.5-inch iPhones as well. The latter models may also be called the iPhone 7s and the iPhone 7s Plus as well. TSMC, which manufactures Apple’s silicon, has already commenced work on the new A11 processor in May. Originally, it wanted to start production in April itself but there were some delays thanks to the 10-nanometer FinFET manufacturing process. The A11 chip will be faster and more energy efficient than the existing A10 chip, which is manufactured on the 16-nanometer process. Along this will be 3GB of RAM, while some reports suggest that the smaller iPhone may have 2GB DRAM onboard. Also, the latest iOS 11 will enable better handling of high-end graphics and multitasking.
The new iPhone 8 will have a much-improved battery life as well. Apple will also use a stacked logic board design to further increased battery life. The redesigned logic board will also mean that the same charge is delivered in a smaller form factor i.e. the charge of a 5.5-inch iPhone in a device similar to the 4.7-inch iPhone. A battery with a capacity of around 2,700 mAh will be used. Battery life will also be improved thanks to the usage of a more efficient OLED panel.
