iPhone 8 Plus Size Model

The much anticipated size of the iPhone 8 Plus is put at 5.5 inch model. The reason for this is that it is certainly unlikely that Apple after the release of the iPhone SE will venture into another 4 inch model iPhone, judging from the fact that it is coming rather too soon. Though unlikely at this point but nothing can be overruled. However, the iPhone 8 Plus is expected to be larger than the iPhone 7 which is also expected to be released alongside it in September.

Judging by the predecessors, it can be noticed that the Plus versions are slightly larger in size. The iPhone 8 Plus is likely to use a 1.5 GHz dual core cyclone CPU, in addition to an A10 chipset that is very capable of boosting speed faster than seen before.

For iPhone user, "not enough storage" is really painful. The internal memory is not left out at all. In fact, it is expected that the different variants like have 32 GB as the base model, 64 GB, 128 GB and as much as 256 GB of internal memory. With this, Apple is already raising the stakes higher when compared to the past.

The battery challenge is also expected to be addressed in the iPhone 8 Plus with the inclusion of battery power as high as 2100mAh.

The pricing of the iPhone 8 Plus is a concern at the moment. It is expected that the phone will start at about $900 upwards.
