Price of Blackberry Aurora
Maybe some of you miss the name Blackberry. Blackberry had hits in the years 2011-2013. After that the Blackberry lost prestige with HPs that use the Android operating system, and it seems like many manufacturers are switching to the operating system. Blackberry now comes with Aurora series that uses the Android OS. Maybe this is the answer for those of you who miss the Blackberry but want to keep using the latest operating system. Blackberry Aurora is priced at quite affordable prices, from 2 million to 2.5 million.
Blackberry Aurora Performance
Maybe you are curious about how the Blackberry is already using the Android operating system and wondering what specifications and performance can compete with brands that already use Android? In this section the Sultan wants to tell the contents of the Blackberry Aurora.
Blackberry Aurora uses a Qualcomm MSM8917 Snapdragon 425 processor which has 4 core cores with a speed of 1.4GHz. For GPU Aurora Blackberry uses Adreno 308 and Android used is the 7.0 series (Nougat). But unfortunately Blackberry does not present a fingerprint scanner for its products when products from other brands such as Samsung, Xiaomi, Asus, and others already include it. Gaming performance presented by this Blackberry smartphone is quite decent. This cellphone is quite smooth for playing light casual games. But to play heavy games like Injustice 2, PUBG or something like that actually still can, but the performance is not as maximum as the HP with the specifications above.
Internal memory planted by Blackberry in this Android series is 32GB. Not bad for storing favorite songs and some videos. But if you feel lacking, you can use a SIM card slot that can be used for microSD. In addition, the RAM memory used is 4 GB.
Blackberry Aurora Screen and Design
Blackberry Aurora shape reminds us of the design of the iPhone 5. The design is quite contemporary, with curved corners. But the design is not too up-to-date like HPs that have bezel-less frames. The weight of this smartphone is 178g. Fairly light according to the Sultan. The size of the Blackberry Aurora is quite comfortable in the hand. The dimensions of the body are 152 x 76.8 x 8.5mm. But what the Sultan was not satisfied with was that the material used was plastic. In addition, the IPS LCD screen of 5.5 inches has a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. Comfortable enough to stream Youtube and Netflix.
Blackberry Aurora Camera
In this Android series, Blackberry includes two cameras namely the 13MP main / rear camera with autofocus and dual-LED flash features. The camera on this cellphone includes a pro mode that allows you to set ISO, white balance, and shutter speed. Another interesting feature on the Blackberry Aurora camera is the cloning feature. You can photograph yourself more than once in one photo.
In addition, for those of you who like to make videos, you can record videos at fullHD / 1080p resolution with a frame rate of 30fps. What about the front camera? The front camera is presented with 8MP but without auto focus. Even without auto focus, the front camera is equipped with a flash.
Blackberry Aurora Battery Interface and Battery
For the sake of market interest now Blacberry uses the Android OS and leaves the operating system made by them. The interface offered by Blackberry Aurora is not too much cosmetic, but even so according to the Sultan, the interface is quite smooth, easy, and practical. Blackberry provides enhanced security features. Blackberry Limited makes Root of Trust (RoT) on hardware by adding a security key to the processor is the Blackberry Aurora feature which according to Sultan is quite exclusive.
