Although Apple’s iPhone X took Tuesday’s event by storm, the Cupertino-based company also unveiled an essential upgrade from the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus that the company dubs the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

The two new handsets bring hardware and cosmetic upgrades to the current iPhone lineup. An all-glass front and rear that are reminiscent of the days of the iPhone 4/4s are standard in all three colors. Apart from that, the bodies look and feel a lot like the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus you might already use, but with a few minor tweaks.
