BlackBerry, earlier called Research in Motion, is a Canadian smartphone-maker that made a name selling QWERTY devices, but is struggling to stay relevant in a world dominated by iOS and Android. After years of backing its own BB OS, the company has decided to make an Android smartphone in a bid to grab a small chunk of the smartphone pie it used to dominate. BlackBerry's latest mobile launch is the Aurora. The smartphone was launched in March 2017. The phone comes with a 5.50-inch display with a resolution of 720 pixels by 1280 pixels.
The BlackBerry Aurora is powered by 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor and it comes with 4GB of RAM. The phone packs 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to GB via a microSD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, the BlackBerry Aurora packs a 13-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 8-megapixel front shooter for selfies.
The BlackBerry Aurora runs Android 7.0 and is powered by a 3000mAh non removable battery. It measures 152.00 x 76.80 x 8.50 (height x width x thickness) and weigh 178.00 grams.
The BlackBerry Aurora is a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts Micro-SIM and Micro-SIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, USB OTG, 3G and 4G. Sensors on the phone include Compass Magnetometer, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer and Ambient light sensor.
