Motorola Aura Details, Price, Specs and Photos

The Motorola Aura is something special and something Motorola should be proud of, lets start with the bit that will hurt the bank, $1,999.99. Damn that is a lot of money but you are getting something real special, let us explain.

Return of Artistry comes the AURA, which is a timeless handset designed with class in mind, this has been crafted to high standards by superb craftsmanship inspired by high-end watches. The Motorola Aura has been made with material and special techniques from luxury jewelers and it boasts the worlds first 16 million color circular display, yes a circular display, the main casing is made from stainless steel to give you the weight and feel of luxury, it has been fitted with chemically-etched textures and patterns, 62-carat sapphire crystal lens and possibly the best scratch-resistant materials on earth.

The AURA has real mechanical gears of Rockwell 50-55 hardened steel and 130 precision ball bearings-working in tandem to drive the phone’s assisted-opening blade, custom-engineered rotating mechanism, 200 high precision individual parts, personally not my sort of phone but still an awesome looking handset.

The main features include:
– Swiss-Made Main Bearing – At the center of the mechanical heart is a Swiss-made main bearing, which serves as the foundation allowing the blade to rotate with seamless precision
– Meticulously Crafted – Stainless steel housing with chemically etched textures and patterns takes nearly two weeks to sculpt, etch and polish
– 700+ Individual Components – Comprised of features including up-scaled, nickel-chrome-plated exposed screws
– 62 Carat Lens – created from Grade 1 62-carat sapphire crystal, one of the most scratch-resistant materials on earth
– Custom-Engineering – Custom-engineered rotating mechanism has 130 precision ball bearings that drive the assisted-opening blade – like opening the door on a high-end luxury car. On the 100,000th opening, the blade glides with the same fluidity and grace that it did on its first
– Tungsten Carbide Coated Gears – Gears composed of Rockwell 50-55 hardened steel are protected with the same coating used in high-performance racing engines
– Aluminum Keypad – Individual aluminum keys are formed, anodized, spin-finish applied and assembled
– CrystalTalkâ„¢ Technology – CrystalTalkTM technology delivers supreme clarity and deep resonance to every single conversation an AURA owner has, even in noisy environments
– Mirror Polish Finish – PVD coating, the same used when making luxury watches, gives AURA its polished, mirrored shine
