Some designers simply slap a new logo onto an older device, while others prefer a more complex route and they even envision boxes for their products. Giorgi Tedoradze fits in the latter category, creating an iPhone 8 Plus, complete with a box and all.
We’ve seen a lot of the iPhone 8, but not so much of the iPhone 8 Plus in concepts. The designer thinks Apple will skip straight to iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, leaving behind the 7s and 7s Plus models. The iPhone 8 Plus has the same length of the predecessor, but also reduced width. The diagonal increases in the meantime from 5.5 inches to 5.8 inches and the screen panel is moved closer to the edges, so it creates an edge to edge effect.
The thickness also decreases greatly, from the 7.3 mm of the iPhone 7 Plus to 6.2 mm, which sounds crazy thin even for Apple. Battery capacity also grows to 3400 mAh, up from 2900 mAh on the predecessor. Of course we still have a dual camera here, with two 12 MP sensors included. The front camera is a 9 MP unit, with wide angle lens and also with a front flash for the first time.
Last, but not least, the Home button can light up and change colors, as you receive calls, messages and notifications. The handset is still made of metal and doesn’t seem to get a glass back this time around. So, basically this is an iPhone 7 Plus with bigger screen, better cameras and some diagonal and battery tweaks…
