Back in December of 2013, one of our readers tipped us that it was accidentally told that BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 would release in January 2014.

We’ve just received word from our sources that the BlackBerry 10.2.1 rollout will in fact begin on January 28th. We confirmed this date for much of Europe and APAC regions.

The BlackBerry 10.2.1 update will bring a plethora of changes we’ve seen since leaked builds. You can expect there to be features like the Picture Password, Customizable Quick Settings, and a new Call Screen.

Stay tuned for the update, as we’re hearing some users may not see it hit until late on the 28th.
