Along with fellow Filipino Apple enthusiasts, I’ve been waiting for iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus to arrive in the Philippines since Apple announced their new smartphones a few months back. Well, the wait is finally over: We can now purchase the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus at Globe Telecom stores and via starting today, November 17.

iPhone 8

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are a new generation of iPhone featuring a new glass and aluminum design in three beautiful finishes—space gray, silver, and a new shade of gold. (I’ve been thinking of getting the iPhone 8 Plus in gold as my, ahem, bridal smartphone for all my personal wedding photos hahaha.) It’s made with the most durable glass ever in a smartphone, Retina HD displays, and a A11 Bionic chip, and is designed for the ultimate augmented experience. The world’s most popular camera gets even better and wireless charging brings a powerful new capability to the iPhone.

iPhone 8 Plus also features dual 12-megapixel cameras and introduces Portrait mode with Portrait Lighting, bringing dramatic studio lighting effects to the iPhone, allowing customers to capture stunning portraits with a shallow depth of field effect in five different lighting styles—I can’t wait to road-test this for my bridal and just-married selfies, haha! Watch for my review of the features soon.
