BlackBerry Aurora going official on March 9 with mid-range specs, but packs 4GB RAM and 32GB storage
The Aurora is a new mid-range BlackBerry-branded smartphone that will soon make its debut in Indonesia. BlackBerry Aurora went on pre-order on the first day of the month, and it should have been available for purchase starting March 3.
However, it looks like PT BB Merah Putih, the company handling the distribution of BlackBerry smartphones in Indonesia, won't be launching the Aurora until tomorrow, March 9.
The smartphone will be available in three colors including Gold, Silver, and Black. Customers who pre-order the Aurora for $262 will also receive a free JBL Go Speaker and a flip case at some retailers.
As some of you may already know, the BlackBerry Aurora will ship with Android 7.0 Nougat on board. Spec-wise, this is clearly a mid-range handset aimed at emerging markets.

The smartphone is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, 4GB RAM, and 32GB expandable storage space. Also, it comes with dual-SIM support and a decent 5.5-inch display with HD (720p) resolution.
A 13-megapixel camera is packed on the back side, while in the front there's a secondary 8-megapixel camera for selfies and video calls.
We doubt the BlackBerry Aurora will be launched outside Indonesia, but a similar device with a different name could be released globally by Chinese company TCL.
