For many, smartphones have become the main way to capture photos throughout the day. But for those looking to display their pictures, printing them out isn’t always the best way to go. That’s where the Aura Digital Picture Frame shines, with a high-density display and smart selection software, it looks to make sure captured photos always look its best.

Other digital photo frames we’ve taken a look at in the past revolve around curated works from famous artists and photographers. But with Aura, the emphasis returns to showcasing the photos from our own lives. Based around the frame’s 9.7-inch display, the Aura looks to complement your home office, study or family room by turning your pictures into works of art.

Often times when you print photos taken with your smartphone, they don’t look as crisp or high quality as they did on the device’s display. Aura’s high-density display ensures that your photos will look just as beautiful on your frame as they do on your phone. It is also packed with sensors which allows Aura to automatically adjusts brightness and other display settings throughout the day. Meaning, your photos will continue looking their best, even in low light conditions. And when you turn off the lights around Aura, the display will power down as well.

Complementing the digital picture frame’s display, Aura uses what it calls Smart Selection to pull in photos as you take them, meaning you’ll never have to worry about manually uploading images. The real highlight of this selection feature is its ability to ignore blurry, low resolution or inappropriate pictures, which ensures that Aura will always display your best photos.

The Aura also allows you to sync as many photos to the frame as you’d like. And best of all, there’s no subscription fee required to take advantage of any of these features, unlike other digital picture frames on the market.

Coming in 4 different colorways, Aura is currently available for purchase for $399 shipped. Included with the digital frame is the power supply, along with a stand and wall mount. If you’re looking for a stylish way to show off those pictures of your family vacation, this certainly looks to be a compelling option based on its more compact size and lower price-point.

More than just a smart frame, Aura’s distinctive design is expertly crafted and engineered from a range of premium materials and finishes. Inspired, elegant, and classic; the Aura Frame will complement and enhance any environment, setting a new design standard for smart products in your life and home. Stunning in display resolution, beautiful in appearance, and sophisticated in construction, Aura redefines what it is to be a picture frame.
