    BB10.3 Homescreen UI Concept-blackberry10.3.jpg

    So, there are whispers that BlackBerry 10.3 will receive a new UI, so I decided to make a concept...

    I made some changes to the bottom adding some of the 'Belt' keys. The BB button automatically opens the multitask window from anywhere, if held in it takes you to the Hub. The Back button take you to the previous screen, if held in, it take you to the first homescreen.

    In the top bar, unread notifications are added, with the red bubble, it means it hasn't been viewed in the Hub, without it, it's been previewed in the Hub, but not opened. Swiping to the left on the top of the screen, take you straight to the Unread part of the Hub.

    The icons can be arranged in anyway you can, leaving the possibilities for open spaces, bottom alignment etc. Icons can be grouped, but not in a separate folder so that it's easier to move. Swiping left over the group, shows you recent notifications, events etc. in the group. You can also opt to not display the app's name if you want. If you swipe upwards over an icon, it opens the app in the background, displaying it in the multitask window, if you swipe downwards, it closes the app, if it's open in the background, if it isn't open, it wipes all unread notifications of the app.

    It's a minor change to the homescreen, and a bit different to what everyone else wants, but I thought I'd add it. What would you like to see changed or added into the rumoured new UI?

    Yes I agree, your concept does not suck at all, but those virtual buttons are not needed when we have the swipe gesture..BB10 is all about swiping....this concept does not need to be changed..like seriously..

    Considering the BlackBerry Belt is making a comeback, BB will need a unified experience across all BB10 devices, why not keep swiping, BUT add the belt as a software addition? Means less extra parts, keeping costs down...
    just like iOS

    Actually no. At the moment the blackberry belt is only coming to the "classic" line of phones. As of this moment that means to one phone the q20.

    No reason to redesign your OS 100% till you see what the one device does in sales.

    Now as to all devices I sure hope not bb10 all swipe is great. I love it much more than my curve and other "belt" devices.

    Alright. Ill give constructive criticism.

    The longer app trays are even uglier. get rid of them completely.
    The search button is gone. That is a massive problem.
    Back button is not needed on home screen.
    The top bar leaves no room for bluetooth, nfc and other indicators.

    Pulling up the keyboard is the search button.

    I say get rid of the shadows, the back button, and update the icons (give them a more modern look).

    Get rid of the shadows and also the worst thing in the concept is the notifications at the top, what is the use of peek if we have our notifications at the top? It's like we are slowly turning it back to BBOS

    The search button needs to come back, swiping up with two fingers to get the keyboard is slow compared to just pressing the search icon.

    Belt is useless on standard full-touch BB10 devices, Peek notifications are where it's at as far as BlackBerry 10 being unique and efficient with screen space simultaneously.

    Sorry, I don't like this concept at all.

    I think 10.3 needs to bring options as for personalizing the home screen but in terms of icon arrangement and grouping, in addition to applying a new, more simplistic look (e.g. Flat design trend).

    But most importantly, if 10.3 doesn't bring universal landscape support, I'm going to scream.

    This is the OP's concept of how BB 10.3 may look and function -- when released. This isn't any official information. No expected release date has been given by BlackBerry as yet.

    Could change the back button to the search button. Overall look is nice.
