The Return of Artistry
Aura by Motorola is a timeless, classically designed device that delivers a sensory experience that is second-to-none for those with refined taste. Combining an exquisite interface with superb craftsmanship inspired by high-end watches, Aura breaks convention and re-establishes artistry in the design and manufacturing of mobile devices. From the moment an Aura owner picks up his or her device they embark on a journey of discovery.
An Exquisitely Performing Device, Designed to the Highest Standards
Drawing on inspiration, materials and techniques from luxury jewelers, Aura begins with the world's first 16 million color, circular display with more colors and sharper resolution than has ever been seen on a Motorola phone. The product's richness can literally be felt, from the weight of its stainless steel housing and the textures and patterns chemically-etched into its surface, to its Grade 1, 62-carat sapphire crystal lens, one of the most scratch-resistant materials on earth.
World's first 16 million colour, circular display with 300 dpi resolution in the mobile phone industry.
Created from Grade 1 62-carat sapphire crystal, one of the most scratch-resistant materials on earth.Stainless steel housing with chemically etched textures and patterns takes nearly two weeks to sculpt, etch and polish.
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.
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. Gears composed of Rockwell 50-55 hardened steel are protected with the same coating used in high-performance racing engines.
