One day after the first images of the BBC100-1 surfaced online, the BlackBerry Aurora shows up once again. This time, the handset is apparently up for pre-order, carrying a price tag of approximately $260 USD.

While BlackBerry KeyOne still has to start shipping, its sibling without a physical keyboard that surfaced yesterday as BBC100-1 is apparently up for pre-order already. An Indonesian online store has the BBC100-1 handset listed as BlackBerry Aurora and its price tag converts to around $260 USD.

BlackBerry Aurora is currently listed packing the following specs and features:

  • Processor: 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC
  • Memory/Storage: 4 GB RAM; 32 GB internal storage and microSD support 
  • Display: 5.5-inch multitouch with 1,280X720 pixels
  • Cameras: 8 MP front, 13 MP back
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, dual-SIM, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, micro USB, 3.5 mm audio jack
  • Operating system: Android 7.0 Nougat
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.39 pounds; 5.98X3.02X0.33 inches
  • Battery: 3,000 mAh
  • Colors: black (probably to remain the only option in the future as well)

While it is apparently too early to talk about the availability of this handset in other markets, we expect it to be officially unveiled soon. As soon as that happens, we will get back to it, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
