BlackBerry 10.3.1 to start rolling out on February 19

Blackberry 10.3.1 update on February 19BlackBerry is expected to start rolling out the BlackBerry 10.3.1 update to BlackBerry 10 devices on February 19. The BlackBerry Classic is currently the only device running the new version of the platform.

BlackBerry 10.3.1 brings several enhancements to the platform, including the Siri-like BlackBerry Assistant. Other features of BlackBerry 10.3.1 include reverse contrast mode that turns the screen from black on white, to white on black. This is useful for nighttime viewing when a bright smartphone screen might bother your spouse. Another new feature will allow you to block contacts from calling or texting you.

You can also hide pictures and videos so that the person you've lent your phone to can't view your private photos. A Battery Saving mode cuts back on screen brightness, eliminates notifications, takes CPU performance down a notch and eliminates "advanced interactions" all to extend battery life. And with Custom Notification, you decide the ringtone that accompanies a call and which color LED lights up to alert you to various events.

Some expected the update to get pushed out last month, which never happened. BlackBerry even tried pushing the update out on Saturday (Feb 7), but had to pull back after facing issues with the update accidentally wiping the entire device. Hopefully the BlackBerry 10.3.1 will be able to stick to its February 19th schedule.
