Despite BlackBerry’s dismally low market share in the U.S., it is still working on the next version of its operating system. And now we know what it will look like, thanks to some leaked screenshots picked up by PhoneArena. It looks like the new OS will feature an “Intelligent Assistant” that will presumably work like Siri or Google Now. The new OS also has a number of new features for its camera. It will be able to take panoramas and, more importantly, selfies with timers. The new camera software will also support taking 720p video at 60fps or 30fps. It will also be able to use HDR to improve image quality in high contrast light environments.
