1. iPhone 8 64GB
Hot off Apple’s last event, the iPhone 8 is finally available in Nigeria. It is the 8th installment of Apple’s ever popular iPhone series. The minimum internal storage for this phone is 64GB. Apple is no longer making 16GB and 32GB phones because users tend to struggle with managing phone space. The iPhone 8 in Nigeria will come just like iPhones everywhere else. It features a unique all-glass design(just like the new Samsung Phones) and wireless charging. The screen is 4.7-inch retina display so the colours are sharp even in this Nigerian sun. The iPhone 8 is splash, water and dust resistant which means if water splashes on the phone, you have no worries. The phone is not completely waterproof however. So don’t go dipping it in water. The camera will remain superb as it is a more advanced 12MP camera with a larger sensor for brighter pictures.
Price for iPhone 8 64GB in Nigeria is between N260,000 and N400,000 depending on where you buy. Online however, the maximum we have seen is N320,000.
2. iPhone 8 Plus 64GB
The iPhone 8 Plus from Apple is what we call the senior brother of the iPhone 8. It pretty much features all the same elements as the iPhone 8 but it has a bigger 5.5-inch screen. The screen is also retina display so don’t expect any change in quality because it is larger. All of the features are the same so the iPhone 8 Plus is splash, water and dust resistant and will charge wirelessly. The camera is also superb just like the iPhone 8.
The price of the iPhone 8 Plus in Nigeria is between N315,000 and N400,000 depending on where you buy.
