The iPhone X may be a really big deal, but it isn’t Apple’s biggest phone: that’s the iPhone 8 Plus, the successor to last year’s iPhone 7 Plus.

The iPhone 7 Plus looks like a bigger iPhone 7 and like its smaller sibling comes in six colours: Rose Gold, Gold, Silver, Black, Jet Black and (Product)RED, and it’s rated IP67 for water and dust resistance.
