From the press rendering, we can also see that it is running Android-no surprise there, as BlackBerry ditched its own homegrown operating system for Google's mobile OS a year ago. The Aurora is an all-touchscreen smartphone, meaning it doesn't have any physical QWERTY keyboard like the KEYone does.

The BlackBerry KEYone launched with Android 7.1 Nougat and also boasted BlackBerry's own DTEK security software. At the bottom, it has 3.5mm headphones jack with primary microphone for calls. On the battery front, the phone will pack a decent 4000 mAh.
Following Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin or IFA 2017, there have been a number of rumors which suggested that BlackBerry was prepping up to release a brand-new all-touchscreen smartphone. There was the modest Aurora (sans keyboard), specifically for the Indonesian market, and then there was the flagship KEYone, which was supposed to invoke memories of BlackBerry roots with its physical keyboard. No word about the price so far, but we sincerely hope it will be competitive enough to actually sell more than just a few thousand units.
