BlackBerry 10.1 update to hit later this month, bring HDR support

BlackBerry logoThe recent launch of the BlackBerry 10 platform, alongside its flagship Z10 smartphone is yet to make a significant impact, but the Canada-based company is busy preparing the new OS for the Z10's QWERTY-based sibling, the BlackBerry Q10. We just heard that the first major update for BlackBerry 10 is almost ready and will launch alongside the second smartphone running the new OS.

The Q10 is expected to go on sale later this month, and while the update will apply to both devices, BlackBerry OS 10.1 is slated to be chock-full of optimizations created specifically for the Q10's hardware keyboard.

Recently, we've learned that the new update will also bring significant updates to the camera including faster performance and HDR picture mode for better low-light performance.

There's also hints of an update for BlackBerry Link that allows you to access your PC and its files.

  • Mnemonic Phone Dialing
  • BlackBerry Mobile Voice System Support
  • Keyboard Shortcuts
  • BlackBerry Balance
  • Word Prediction
  • Type N Go
  • Corporate Liable Feature
  • Cross Domain Email Warnings
  • Dark Theme Support
  • Out-of-Box-Experience
  • Smartcard Support

The BlackBerry Q10 is rumored to hit shelves in Canada on the 30th of this month, so expect to see the update go live around that time.
