Sports a Stainless steel overall unibody and covered exquisitely in glass, the red version of the iPhone 7 wasn’t covered in glass. So this Red version will dish out a sleek vibe and reflect light beautifully. The device still comes with its IP67 certifications, offering dust and water resistant.

Nonetheless, you still have to get a case for it, to avoiding getting a rear cracked glass. This red color brings out the true beauty of the iPhone 8 and shows us exactly what glass can do at the back of a device. As usual, it measures 7.3mm in thickness and weighs 148g overall.

At first glance, you would notice the bezels are black, unlike what we saw on the red version of iPhone 7. Now the black bezels have been adopted from the Space Gray color of the iPhone 8. Furthermore, it ships with its home button which doubles as a fingerprint scanner.

The compact 4.7-inch LED-backlit FHD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen might be a little too small in a world of big screen phones. However, it has a resolution of 750 x 1334 pixels with 326 pixels per inch density, giving you clear and sharp visuals. Additionally, it has an Ion-strengthened glass, oleophobic coating, wide colour gamut and true-tone display.
