BlackBerry 10.2 screenshots alarms

Last month, a BlackBerry employee took to his new BBM Channel to tease some of the features that are coming to BlackBerry 10 with the OS 10.2 update, such as support for standard unicode emojis and multiple alarms. Today some more information on the update has trickled out, and the good news for the more visual learners among us is that OS 10.2 is being shown off in pictures and video.

CrackBerry forums member Kris Simundson has uploaded photos and a video showing  the BlackBerry 10.2 update onto his white BlackBerry Z10, giving us an early glimpse at some of the goodies that will be coming with the next major BB10 update. Included are some minor UI tweaks, such as a new loading icon, along with a "Backup" option in the Settings menu and the aforementioned support for multiple alarms.

It's important to note that BlackBerry hasn't actually announced when it plans to begin rolling the OS 10.2 update out to users. Many BlackBerry 10 users are still waiting on their OS 10.1 update, though, so they'll have some new software to tinker with in the near future. For anyone that's already rocking OS 10.1, or anyone that just wants a peek at OS 10.2 in action, the seven-minute video showcasing BlackBerry OS (and a tiny bit of not safe for work language) can be found below.
