Declassified specifications of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus

When Apple announced the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, it didn't really reveal the battery sizes of both devices.

The iPhone 8 has a 1821mAh battery, whereas the iPhone 7 has a 1960mAh unit; the iPhone 8 Plus has a 2675mAh battery and the iPhone 7 Plus has a 2900mAh battery. The iPhone 8 Plus' battery is 2,675mAh in comparison to the iPhone 7 Plus' 2,900mAh cell.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be available from 22 September, priced from £699 and £799 respectively.

Apple says that the new iPhone 8s sport a similar look as that of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The Chinese certification site in its listing has revealed that the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will come with a smaller battery size as compared to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

It's possible that the battery life of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are the same with their predecessors.

Sadly, fast charging won't be possible when using a Qi charging mat, even Apple's own AirPower mat, but that's more for overnight charging or when you are in a vehicle with a Qi charging pad. While Apple claimed that the battery capacity of the new iPhones is the same as that of the last year's devices, a new report has said that there is a difference, and it is bad. While most of the features in the new iPhones are better than the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, there could be one important feature which probably did not live upto the expectations. The A11 chipset has two high performance cores and four high-efficiency cores.

To recall, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus come with a faster A11 Bionic chip with a full glass body and support wireless charging while incorporating augmented reality support in the camera module.

As for fast-charging, users will have to buy Apple's USB-C Power adapters for that, as well as the USB-C to Lightning Cable.
