Apple just announced the forthcoming release of the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Here’s how the new models compare to last year’s versions. After months of rumors and leaks, Apple’s trio of new iPhones were officially announced today at the company’s new Cupertino, Calif., campus: the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X (pronounced “ten”). All three devices share similar features such as running iOS11 and wireless charging, a first for iPhones.

The iPhone 8 is the only phone from this trio to feature a single rear camera sensor. It’s a 12-megapixel lens with optical image stabilization and an aperture of f/1.8. The iPhone 8 Plus is a step up, combining a pair of 12-megapixel cameras laid out side-by-side. One of these is a wide-angle sensor with an f/1.8 aperture, while the other is a telephoto sensor with optical image stabilization and an f.2.8 aperture.
The larger 8 Plus, meanwhile, will cost $799/£799 for 64GB and $949/£949 for 256GB. The new device will include a new, faster chip and 12 MP dual rear cameras, and Apple said it has been designed with 3D apps and games in mind. The company also showed off Sky, a new game from the developer of Journey.
