With the glass rear panel, both the iPhones now support wireless charging.

While the camera modules are similar as far as the lens specifications are concerned, the iPhone 8 Plus features Portrait Lighting and offering iPhone X-like Augmented Reality experience. The iPhone 8 misses out on all these and has very little difference when compared to the iPhone 7 in terms of overall software experience. The iPhone 8 Plus features dual 12-megapixel cameras and introduces Portrait mode with Portrait Lighting, bringing dramatic studio lighting effects to iPhone, allowing users to capture portraits with a shallow depth-of-field effect in five different lighting styles.
