In the storage department, it comes in two variants. The 2GB/64GB version as well as the 2GB/256GB version and both versions doesn’t have an external SD card slot.  It has a primary camera of 12MP which has other features such as phase detection autofocus, OIS, quad-LED dual-tone flash, check quality. The front sselfie camera is a 7MP sensor which has features such as 1080p@30fps, 720p@240fps, face detection, HDR, panorama. Of course it has no headphone jack and supports Bluetooth 5.0. The iPhone 8 has no FM radio, however it has a USB port, front mounted fingerprint scanner, a accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass and barometer.

It comes in four color variants namely Silver, Space Gray, Gold and Red. It has a poor battery capacity of a non-removable 1821 mAh battery capacity. Apple says the battery has an endurance rating of 66 hours although I very much doubt it. The device costs about 700, Euro which is approximately #300,000. No doubt its not for the poor but for the rich and flamboyant.
