BlackBerry Aurora Launched

After a little long, BlackBerry launched a BlackBerry Aurora smartphone which is running on Android Nougat with Qualcomm Snapdragon 425. It’s a very awkward thing BlackBerry did, when we look up at the price tag of this smartphone. Along with that, it also houses 4GB of RAM.

The brand new BlackBerry Aurora sports 5.5-inch (720×1280 pixels) display. Apart from all, this smartphone is to be claimed as first which features dual-SIM from the house of BlackBerry. The phone will be available in three colour variants which are Gold, Black & Silver.
