BlackBerry OS 10.1 will speed up camera, brings HDR and other improvements
BlackBerry OS 10 launched just a couple of months ago and the first phone with the new platform, the BlackBerry Z10, has only been available for a couple of weeks in the United States, but the first updates to the operating system are already on track.

We heard about a BlackBerry OS 10.1 update coming by the end of the month, along with the BlackBerry Q10, the QWERTY-based second BB10 smartphone.

And now, rumors paint an even fuller picture of BB10.1. The update is expected to bring a lot of improvements mostly in the camera part, but also in the UI and keyboard. The camera for once is expected to run faster and get support for HDR photos for better dynamic range when needed.

Interestingly, the new version of the platform is said to support active connection between your phone and PC so you can access files on your computer. And here are the previously leaked features for this huge first update:

  • 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
