BlackBerry officially unveiled the BlackBerry Aurora this morning, introducing a touch only handset that is going to be made and sold in Indonesia.

Powering the device is the Snapdragon 425 chipset carrying a quad-core CPU, and the Adreno 308 GPU.

Surprisingly, the Aurora comes with 4GB of RAM inside, along with 32GB of native storage. A 13MP camera adorns the back of the phone, while an 8MP front-facing camera snaps selfies and handles video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 3000mAh battery, and Android 7.0 is pre-installed. The Aurora is the first BlackBerry to ship with Dual SIM capabilities.

The phone has been available for pre-orders since the beginning of the month, and reservations for the phone will be accepted up to March 12th. The BlackBerry Aurora is priced at the equivalent of $260 USD.
