4K Recording at 60fps for both cameras
As you already know, the camera in iPhone 8 will be ready for facial detection and augmented reality. It now seems like this is not all and the camera is more feature-rich than we can imagine.
iPhone 8′ camera will support a maximum recording resolution of 4K (3840 × 2160 pixels) at 60 frames per second. This is a giant step-up from 4K 30FPS recording in iPhone 7.
Apparently, this high resolution is not limited only to the dual camera on the back. HomePod firmware contains snippets of code that refer to both rear and front cameras.
World’s first Smart Camera
iPhone 8 will feature the world’s first “smart” camera. According to the code present in HomePod firmware, the camera will have an “intelligent” recognition system.
At present, we don’t know much details about this and it’s not clear how it will work. However, it’s safe to assume that it will improve photos using artificial intelligence.
This tweet by Brazilian iOS developer Guilherme Rambo confirms this.
iOS 11 (or the next iPhone) will have something called SmartCam. It will tune camera settings based on the scene it detects pic.twitter.com/7duyvh5Ecj

The code contains references to presets for the sky, snow, sunrise, sunset, fireworks, foliage, pets, etc and other conditions.
According to me, the “automatic” mode will automatically apply all the necessary filters so as to provide the best photography experience.
These rumors are most likely true since they are present in the official code. It won’t be long until we can test the camera out for yourself now that iPhone 8 is upon us.
