Last week SKK Mobile teased a new budget-friendly smartphone offering that's to offer a massive 5.5-inch display. A couple of photos were posted on their Facebook page, there was even a leaked image of the device that went online hours prior to the teaser. And today, SKK Mobile has officially and fully revealed the said smartphone, it is called the Aura.
It is a very affordable for its 5.5-inch qHD IPS display, quad-core processor, 4GB of internal storage, 3G network support, Android 4.4.2 Kikat OS and 2,800mAh battery. That's right, all of those mentioned specs are available on this SKK Mobile Aura for just a price tag of Php2,999. The phones design is also very attracting and looks premium by just looking at the photos below provided by SKK Mobile.
One of press images says, metal material and that SKK Mobile uses aluminum magnesium alloy for the smartphone's casing. We can't clearly identify if the whole casing is made of metal or just the rim but whichever of the two is real the entire phone's design is still incredible especially for its price tag of less than Php3K.
If there was one turn off I could spot here that would be the RAM which only comes in at 512MB. For most users even the moderate ones, most of them wanted at least 1GB of RAM for their new smartphones. 512MB is actually not bad, since the device already runs Android Kitkat which should still provide a smooth and lag free navigation experience. However it would be much much better if there's 1GB of RAM even if they price it at Php3,500 or something.
For other specs there are the 4GB internal storage which is still expandable via microSD card of up to 32GB, 5MP rear camera with LED flash paired with a 2MP front camera, good thing it's not VGA one. Is it dual-SIM capable? I don't know yet but most likely it is just like any other smartphones of recent. See more specs below.
