BlackBerry OS 10.3 Icons to Sport a Flat Design

BlackBerry OS 10.3, the operating system version that Canadian handset vendor BlackBerry is expected to make official before the end of this year, will bring along a series of UI changes to icons, the company has confirmed once again.

We already knew that the smartphone maker was preparing such changes for the platform, but no specific details on what they might be all about has been provided as of now. However, courtesy of BlackBerry’s Michael Clewley, we can now make a better idea of what to expect in the operating system once it arrives on devices towards the end of 2014. The first thing that you will notice when looking at the screenshot attached to this post is that the dark gradient box behind the icons will no longer be present in the upcoming OS iteration. As N4BB notes, these icons still feature a thin drop-shadow effect in addition to the flatter design, but they do look much better than before overall.

BlackBerry OS 10.3 was also said to come with other UI changes inside, such as primary actions brought to the center, and some red accents. Other enhancements are also expected to arrive along with the new OS iteration, though it seems that we’ll have to wait a bit longer for them to be unveiled.
