Blackberry OS 10.1 to bring HDR support among other fixes


Several Blackberry OS developers mention the last hours that the company has made available version 10.1 of the OS, an early alpha build, which nonetheless reveals various upcoming features of the platform. The most noticeable new feature seems to be the ability to shoot HDR photos, along with APN editing, improved notification management for different apps, PIN-to-PIN messaging, and paste support for the dialpad.

According to the official log release of the developers' update here is the full list of its new features and changes.

  • HDR option for taking photos
  • PIN to PIN messaging now available and present in the BlackBerry Hub
  • APN editing is now enabled (Though this may remain carrier based)
  • 'Highlights" for text such as word correction on the keyboard are now green, instead of blue
  • 'Text Picker' has been improved, now allows for easily moving left and right between letters easier
  • Sharing menu is now black, just like on the BlackBerry Q10
  • New help demos and walkthroughs after initial boot
  • Select All for broadcast messages is now available
  • Ability to turn off alerts for specific applications
  • Easier to check for updates in BlackBerry World
  • Phone can be fully unlocked at lock screen now by the power button
  • BlackBerry World now has options for coupon redemption
  • Pasting of phone numbers directly into dialpad
  • Installed apps can be opened from with BlackBerry World (No longer shows 'installed' now shows 'open')

As you understand this is a developers only version of the Blackberry OS so there's no official information on when the update will be available for the rest of us. Stay tuned though, we'll let you know asap.
