True Tone Display

The True Tone display creates a wider colour gamut than ever before, giving new depths of colour and vibrancy. The iPhone 8 Plus finely adjusts the viewing experience by sensing the colour temperature of the surrounding environment. It then makes subtle adjustments to the white balance, giving a paper-like reading experience that reduces eyestrain.

The fine resolution consists of 401 pixels per inch and with Dual Domain Pixels, content is visible from wide viewing angles. The True Tone display is made from the most durable glass used on a smartphone ever. The strengthening layer in the display is now 50% deeper.

The durable front and back glass faces are fixed onto an aerospace 7000-series aluminium frame. The machining here is so precise that the phone is IP67 splash and water resistant, even down at a microscopic level.

Portrait Mode and Portrait Lighting

The dual camera system consists of a telephoto camera lens and a wide angle camera lens. Together, these lenses can capture high quality bokeh images with blurred backgrounds. The dual camera also delivers optical zoom, which retains the detail that is often lost through digital zoom systems.

Portrait Mode and Portrait Lighting are the most exciting additions to the main cameras and the TrueDepth selfie camera. These modes allow photographers to add studio quality lighting effects to portraits, which enhance facial characteristics. From Studio Light to Stage Light, portrait results are simply breathtaking.

Augmented Reality

The new A11 Bionic six-core chip is the most powerful and smartest chip in a smartphone ever. With a neural engine that can processes up to 600 billion operations per second, the iPhone 8 Plus is built for Augmented Reality experiences.

Apple fans will be able to immerse themselves in AR gaming, where they can move around the real world, with the action and the stereo sound adapting itself to the surroundings. AR apps will let iPhone 8 Plus owners interact with the world in new ways. It will be possible to digitally redecorate a house or see how different tattoos may look on the user’s body.
