BlackBerry OS 10.1 Rumored to Bring Faster Camera, HDR, & More

 Blackberry 10

We have already heard some rumors of what is coming to the BlackBerry Q10 in BlackBerry OS 10.1 but a little bit more leaked out this week. BBNews.pl claims that BlackBerry OS 10.1 will also include four more key improvement. This is not a total list but it does give you an idea of the direction BlackBerry is going. These improvements according to them are:

  • Improved camera that runs faster
  • Camera can capture HDR (High-dynamic-range) pictures to capture a wider range of light and dark in a picture
  • The ability to send PIN messages from the hub
  • A connection from the Phone to your computer over BlackBerry Link allowing you to access PC files

All in all these are pretty nice improvements. I have been hearing rumors about the first three but the last is something new. What I am really waiting for is the improvement of notifications to allow different notifications per email account and different volume alerts.

Thanks Mark for sending this in!

  1. PIN messages?

    What for?…

  2. this is awesome! bring it on!

  3. Sometimes I’d like to save ALL the photos from timeshift mode! Great if they added that option!

    • Try Burst mode on the regular camera. Hold a finger on the screen and it takes quick shots in succession.

      To get there tap the overflow menu (3 vertical dots) when the camera is open. Tap Normal then select Burst. Pretty cool feature.

  4. Any news on when we will get a update to be able to sync both ways Outlook / Contacts / Calendar / Notes??

  5. This is awesome improvements especially being able to check my PC from the handheld.

  6. nice new updates… however I’m hearing way too many little bugs and quirks in the Z10 from my friend that I’m HOPING these will be addressed sooner rather than later.

  7. I would also like the notifications fixed. And a faster way to make a call in an instant. Keep the updates coming though. All are welcome and will get used. As far as little bugs goes, yeah, there are a few quirks I would call them but it’s getting better

  8. What I want is the ability to create albums in the photos app and drag photos into the album from the app without having to go into the file manager always!

  9. Hidden folders…….. bring those back

  10. I’m really happy to see so many improvements constantly being rolled out. The camera response time is so fast. Glad that the light and dark range is being increased.

  11. I would like the notifications improved and to get the good old option in holster mode!!! That is why I got the holster I want my BB10 to be on vibrate in my holster…..please

  12. I’d like to see integration with the phone and contacts app and headless apps please.
