The countdown is on until RIM’s highly anticipated BlackBerry 10 unveil and there is a real sense of feeling that the company are going to be back better than ever with their new collection of smartphones powered by the new OS. We have been treating you to early leaks that have become available thanks to developer devices, and now we have a look at some of the excellent camera features that will be available to you once BB10 handsets are finally available to buy.
We’re really impressed with what we have seen from BlackBerry 10 so far. It’s fair to say that older versions of BlackBerry needed a makeover and we’ve heard nothing but positive feedback from those who have already managed to get an early preview of the software.
We’ve seen three handsets leaked so far, those being the BlackBerry London, BlackBerry X10 (QWERTY device) and also the BlackBerry Z10. The Z10, or Lisbon as its also been known as, is touchscreen-based along with the London and can been seen in detail here, thanks to an early video preview. It’s rumored to be heading to T-Mobile in March and will include decent specs such as a 4.2-inch display, NFC support, 8 megapixel camera and 2GB of RAM.
Social media is going to be a core feature of the new operating system and to give you an idea of how this will work with the BB10 camera application, we have a great video to show you which lets you see some of the in-depth filtering options available. It’s a definite thumbs up to the impact that Instagram has had on mobile users, as it looks like RIM wants to replicate that success with multiple filter options available built directly into their own application.
Watch the video to see how different effects can be applied with ease and we’re guessing there will be a variety of sharing options as well once you’re done editing. Don’t forget that this is a developer build you’re looking at here, both hardware and software – but it already looks very promising.
What are your thoughts on BlackBerry 10 picture filtering, Instagram style? We can’t wait for the big reveal on January 30 – stay tuned for further information throughout the week.
