Espressif ESP8266 is a very popular platform for IoT applications relying on WiFi, at least for hobbyist, while Espressif ESP32 is the new solution from the company that adds a CPU core, faster WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, and various I/Os which should launch very. Amica.io released a table showing the main differences between the two processors which are expected to coexist in the market with ESP8266 used in the lower cost segment, and ESP32 in applications requiring WiFi and Bluetooth, or some of the new interfaces.
Some of the features were clearly listed when ESP32 was first announced, but for example I was not aware that an Ethernet MAC, and a temperature sensor were built into the new SoC.
