The new phones come with the newer A11 Bionic chip, which consists of six cores -- four low-efficiency and two high-performance. The cameras will also receive a bump in resolution, with 12-megapixel sensors around back and a 7-megapixel front shooter. Both will also come with Qi wireless charging, as well.
If that's enough to whet your appetite, here's how you can expect to place your preorder and get your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus before everyone else.
