    • Voice note recording (H)
    • Video recording on Curve models (H)

    Panthirez, I believe that the Pearl doesn't have the capability to produce video with or without a software update. Sorry.

    I'm afraid it's because your particular device does not have the internals required for this function to work, which means you'd need a different device in order to get this feature.
