No crowds at Apple stores in China as iPhone 8 launches

But the iPhone X is also over 40% more expensive than the iPhone 8, so is it worth the substantial extra outlay?

But some visiting the Apple store in Beijing said the cheaper iPhone 8 and 8 Plus weren't worthy of a purchase because they were too similar to what they now own.

This can be used to unlock the phone and make payments via Apple Pay, as well control new animated emoji - named Animoji - using their facial expressions. And there are risks in banking too much on the iPhone X. That model-which boasts facial-recognition technology and a larger, edge-to-edge display-was beset by production problems this summer, and it is unclear how many phones will be available when it ships November 3. The screen takes up more space, pushing off the iconic Home button.

They add wireless charging, new camera sensors and the same faster A11 processor as the X, but for the most part look the same as the iPhone 7.

HCL Infosystems announced it will offer the new generation iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. The Apple Watch Series 3 and Apple TV 4K are both big upgrades compared to their predecessors, but the big news is that the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are finally here and people couldn't possibly be any more excited. They also cost $200 to $300 less than the iPhone X, which starts at $999.

Hardcore Apple fans are going to wait for the iPhone X, of course.

Apple Inc's (AAPL.O) iPhone 8 launch in Sydney, one of the first cities to access the product in Australia, saw a bleak turnout as fans held out for the soon-to-be-released premium iPhone X. But today the store saw a crowd of about 50 people waiting in line to be one of the first to buy the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. It's a bold reimagining of the iPhone, packed with exciting changes and complex new technologies like Face ID. It's easier to pre-order online and get it handed to you by a friendly delivery person.
