With Google I/O right before our face, conjecture is naturally swarming concerning just what the search and Android giant will need to mention.

Android new

New versions of Android are usually on the agenda at Google’s large developer getaway, and we see no huge reason why this year’s occasion would certainly be any different.

With that said in mind, the next variation of Android could be just nearby, and with the following letter in the alphabet-based naming convention used for Android being ‘‘ L,’ we might have our first genuine appearance at exactly what it is visiting look like.

Discover on the notorious Reddit and dropping by method of the Chromium Concern Tracker, both screenshots show up to reveal both mobile phone and tablet computer models of the next release of Android. The tracker has been the source of actual Android leaks in the past, so we wouldn’t be at all shocked if these screenshots became accurate.

While not truly offering the video game away way too much, the screenshots do give us one or 2 understandings into some modifications that Google is obviously making to the means Android works and looks. To begin with, there’s a brand-new bell icon in the standing bar which, according to other reports, corresponds to a function just like Apple’s ‘‘ Do Not Disturb’ switch. When on, that attribute transforms all notices off entirely, making the phone or tablet computer silent, which is perfect for meetings and saves making use of the ol’ faithful airplane method. It would certainly, without a shadow of an uncertainty, be a welcome addition to Android.


Speaking of the status bar, the screenshots show a completely clear providing, whereas the KitKat condition bar has a slight slope to it. It could not be the biggest change ever made to a condition bar, however it’s enough to change the means things looks.


Additionally noticeable because standing bar, and one more factor these screenshots could be above board, is the little ‘‘ L’ icon. This is a placeholder that shows up when a tool is plugged into USB with debugging switched on. Early screenshots of KitKat revealed the letter ‘‘ K’ in a comparable fashion, so it shows up Google is proceeding that fad.


No matter, we’ll no question see the new version of Android tomorrow, placing an end to all the speculation concerning exactly what it will be called, at the extremely least.
