Some of you may have been wondering if the new "Natural Sound" BBM feature is purely a Z30 exclusive or just an updated OS 10.2 feature? I am happy to report that it is a bit of both. We learned that the new Natural Sound feature will be available to all BlackBerry 10 smartphones as part of the soon-to-be-released free, over the air software update to 10.2 OS. That being said, with stereo speakers and four microphones that are carefully integrated as well as software tuning carried out by BlackBerry’s expert audio engineers, users will be able to experience BlackBerry Natural Sound to the fullest effect with BlackBerry Z30, including during some the toughest real-world environments, enabling them to “share like they’re there”.
The Z30 has just recently been seen in FCC postings for North America so it is a matter of weeks before American and Canadian Carriers start selling the Z30 in time for the holiday season. In BlackBerry JAM Asia a Verizon branded Z30 was also spotted and posted elsewhere as well.
PS: I know many of you with leaked OS builds have already seen this feature but we had a few readers ask about it.
