No. (or at least I highly highly doubt it, although nobody can really know for sure).
If you really want an autofocus camera, get the Bold 9790. Pretty much the same specs as the 9900, just a smaller screen and keyboard. Depends on your preferences.~SaMaster14

I am thinking that the 99xx series is the end of the road for the series till the BB10 hardware arrives. So reworking the 9900 with a different camera is likely not going to happen.

If you really want to know why RIM didn't put Auto-Focus on the Bold 9900 see the post on my blog
Why doesn’t the Bold 9900 have an Auto-Focus camera? | Zamkato

I think the Java based OS is a done deal for RIM at this point. BB 10 will hopefully have better camera... so, I don't think there will be a 99xx refresh model.

RIM made a mistake with lack of AF on the bold 99xx. I think a lot more bolds 99xx would have been sold if it was with AF...
Recent announcement (first operational lose) is a direct result of this blunder.

I've seen people post very good images of menus and pages using the 9900 camera, it can be done, it is just a matter of settings and technique. It isn't as convenient as an auto-focus camera, this is true, but what is done is done, and yet another question on a moot point is answered. The river is cried, time to build a bridge and get over it.

i know bb is getting a lot of slack for this but i dont think many people outside CB are really worried about AF or not. On most carriers websites if you compare stats it'll just say how many MP... a lot of consumers that i know of dont even know the diff. If they want a BB they'll get the 9900 if they want AF they'll get a 9790 or something else. If they dont buy a BB its not because of AF, its they want Andriod or iOs etc.
