With iPhone X still more than one month away from reaching consumers, initial appetite for iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus appears to be weak. On one hand, the fact that the iPhone 8 is not in as much demand as its predecessor the iPhone 7 was sounds very discouraging.

The substantial components costs for the entry level 64GB iPhone 8 Plus starts at around $288.08.

The processor of the smartphone is similar, the A11 Bionic, which also features on the new iPhone X as well as an HD retina display and a 12MP camera. For those unaware, the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X support wireless charging.

Most iPhone buyers do not pay the full freight for the phones. Unlike in the 2016, the queues in front of brick and mortar stores of Apple for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were significantly smaller.

It is mainly the near-bezel-less design, the True-Depth camera and Apple's promise that the iPhone X is the "future of smartphone technology" that made customers skip the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus and instead look forward to iPhone X pre-orders.

For the first time, all six cores of the CPU cluster can be activated at once to crush through operations. So how much they cost Apple?

As it stands, both iPhone 8 models have been largely overshadowed by the forthcoming release of the iPhone X which will be the most expensive iPhone Apple has created to date starting at $999. With iPhone 8 sales looking weaker than expected, hope had shifted to the iPhone X. The glass backs on the new devices allow for inductive charging that requires a new controller inside that's supplied by Broadcom Ltd. Just like the iPhone 7, it is waterproof. It also sports a wide color gamut display. Slow-motion video capture at 1080p is also smoother, at 240 frames per second double from a year ago.
