The new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were announced as the event and here are some interesting things you should know about them

The iPhone X is all screen as it has always been the vision of Apple to create such a device. Since there’s no home button, the Touch ID option is also not available on this device.
2. Beautiful all screen design
The iPhone X introduces a revolutionary design with a stunning all-screen display that precisely follows the curve of the device, clear to the elegantly rounded corners. The all-glass front and back feature the most durable glass ever in a smartphone in silver or space gray, while a highly polished, surgical-grade stainless steel band seamlessly wraps around and reinforces iPhone X.

Unlike the normal models that go from 16GB to 256GB, the new iPhone 8 is either 64GB or 256GB.
4. Wireless charging
