This link https://www.google.co.id/amp/s/www.theandroidsoul.com/blackberry-oreo-update-release-date/amp/ maybe not true, but who knows, said that the Aurora also will get Android Oreo in Q4, 2018.
Been a BlackBerry fan always. The BB Aurora caught my eye with its dual sim feature. Looking at the core of it seemed pretty low but hey the price was right.
First it came out, the Android OS version had issues but they sorted it out.
I'm a heavy daily user and had second thoughts using the BB Aurora as my daily driver. But surprise, surprise, the batt life was enough to get me thru the day with still enough power for me to utilise. And this little fella, performance wise can hold its on compared to my iphone 7.
I get my email faster, lots of customisation available to use. A happy BB fan here

blackberry devices known to be impossible to root
and worst than it, i cannot install some apks and it also locked out device administrators so i cannot modify anything with this devices
it has built in DTEK apps to prevent any unauthorized access.

I bought BlackBerry Aurora yesterday, overall is good. This is my experience using BlackBerry Aurora:
+ Price right now is affordable cheap for Android phone comes with 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB internal memory
+ Performance overall is good, there is BBM app preinstalled, BlackBerry Hub. I use Aurora for texting, chatting in Telegram, WhatsApp, calling, for very fine, YouTube also good. Playing AOV game is good enough, not recommended for gaming user
+ Reception in calling feature is very good, internet is also good, battery life is good enough
+ For design is fine. The back cover made in plastic maybe is not matter, its design without home button also good. Dedicated microSD slot and separated slot for SIM 1 and SIM 2
+ Camera is good enough for simple use
- No NFC, first time it comes with price USD 300 but doesn't has NFC
- Rather hard to find temper glass that fit its screen
- No option to display batter percentage permanently
- No double tap to wake up screen, to wake up screen should press power button
- No fast charging
- Comes with Android Nougat is fine, but the system update app is bad, frequently encounter "server communication error, please try again" message. Also less receive new update whereas, the Aurora is running on Android stock rom
Bought for around 92USD but not really happy with it
Ram 4 Rom 32 (unbeatable price)
Not easy getting hot on continuous use
Overall Good looking phone
No need pin to change Sim Card, Dedicated Micro slot
Camera is Ok for me (Rarely use it)
Lame UI , MIUI is much much much better
Display glass no scratch resistant and hard to find tempered that suit it (Rounded edge)
Soft key is inside the screen and can't switch place need time to get usual
Bizarre power button location
Battery life is just So So
