BlackBerry 10.2.1 is said to be bringing a multitude of changes to the BlackBerry 10 operating system. Rumors have it that the update will bring the Google Play Store to allow BlackBerry users access to the entire Android app ecosystem.

We can exclusively confirm that BlackBerry 10.2.1 will also be bringing a new call screen. BlackBerry 10’s original call screen allowed you to answer a call by swiping down or decline by swiping up.

In the 10.2.1 update, you will be swiping either left to answer or right to decline. This action bar slider is located below the callers image (should they have one saved from your contacts book). While we’re not allowed to show you what it looks like, BlackBerry basically copied the Android ICS styled call screen and shown below:


The 10.2.1 update will also bring a new Quick Settings drop-down menu. You will now be able to toggle which settings are shown, which can include a flashlight, device monitor, mobile hotspot, and more.

BlackBerry 10.2.1 looks to be shaping up nicely and I am impatiently awaiting its release. What other enhancements would you like to see OS 10.2.1 bring in the update?
