What's the difference between the iPhone 8 and iPhone X camera?

iPhone X Camera

The iPhone X is equipped with Apple's fastest 12MP sensor with new telephoto lens, color filter and deeper pixels. While it shares a lot of the same features as the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, it is the only iOS device equipped with a TrueDepth front-facing camera and Face ID. Other new features include Apple's new Portrait Lighting technology that adds "studio‑quality" lighting effects to faces, an improved Portrait mode and the Animoji face tracking technology.

The iPhone X uses Apple's state-of-the-art seven-magnet solution, a dual OIS (Optic Image Stabilization) system and dual lenses to deliver a better optical zoom, sharper detail and more natural background blurring in its improved Portrait mode. All these features also enable the iPhone X to perform better in low light situations.

Apple states that iPhone X features "advanced pixel processing, wide color capture, and a faster autofocus," thanks to its own image signal processor that automatically detects movement and lighting situations.

The iPhone X is equipped with a ƒ/1.8 aperture for the wide-angle lens, a ƒ/2.4 aperture for the telephoto lens, 10x digital zoom, Live Photos support and a Quad-LED True Tone flash with Slow Sync.

All three next-generation models (iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X) are capable of shooting 4K video at 24 fps, 30 fps, or 60 fps and time-lapse video with stabilization.

The front-facing 7MP TrueDepth camera features a ƒ/2.2 aperture, Retina Flash and
1080p HD video recording capabilities.
