Video shows off the rear camera on the BlackBerry Aurora

As many of you know, the BlackBerry KEYone is not the only new BlackBerry that is going to be released in the near future. As we told you earlier today, the BlackBerry Aurora is expected to be introduced on March 9th, and is the result of a partnership between BlackBerry and Indonesia's Merah Putih. In fact, the phone's distribution will be limited to that country. The handset is available to be pre-ordered, priced at the equivalent of $262 USD; those who pre-order the unit will receive a free JBL Go speaker and a free flip case from participating retailers.

A video for the Aurora was released today, showing the phone's rare camera and electronic aperture in action. The device sports a 5.5-inch display with a 720 x 1280 resolution. Powering the phone is the Snapdragon 425 SoC featuring a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 308 GPU. A surprising 4GB of RAM is inside, and a 3000mAh battery keeps the lights on.

The electronic aperture controls for the rear camera allows for more precise manual settings of the snapper. Check it out for yourself by clicking on the video at the top of the story.
