HMD Aura: Low-cost Smartphone with 4GB RAM and an HD+ IPS Screen Released

Three separate models of the entry-level repairability-focused Pulse series, all based on the 12nm Unisoc T606 chipset, were previously sold in Europe by HMD Global. The HMD Aura, a more reasonably priced phone, was just introduced by the business in Australia.

HMD Aura key specs and features:

The 6.56′′ 900 x 1600 resolution IPS LCD display on the front of the HMD Aura has bezels that resemble those of the Pulse Pro. But instead of a punch-hole-style cutout for the front camera, it has a water drop notch. Compared to most phones on the market, this one has a wider display (16:9 as opposed to 20:9).

Glacier Green and Indigo Black, the two colours of the Aura that are available, are shown in the pictures above.

The phone is powered by the 28nm Unisoc SC9863A1 processor, which is also found in the Nokia C31. It receives about 160 in the single-core and 725 in the multi-core GeekBench 6 CPU test, for those who are interested in benchmarking.

It has 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM. For operations like routine web browsing and video streaming, the 4GB RAM should be sufficient.

The HMD Aura has a 5000mAh battery and a USB-C connector that allows for 10W charging. There is a 3.5mm headphone jack on this phone as well.

You get a 5MP selfie camera on the front and a 13MP primary camera on the back with an auxiliary lens (for things like depth mapping, which you shouldn’t care about).

The phone has a fingerprint scanner installed on the rear, underneath the flash module, for added security. Out of the box, Android 13 is installed on the phone.

Pricing and availability:

The cost of the HMD Aura is AUD 180 (about $128) in the nation. As a point of comparison, the HMD Pulse (4GB+128GB) costs approximately $150 (AUD 230).
