Android N screenshots offer early look at next major Android upgrade

Android N screenshots offer early look at next major Android upgrade

Despite having gone official nearly half a year ago, Android 6.0 Marshmallow is still running on only a tiny percent of Android devices in the wild. Things will certainly get better as devices launch with Marshmallow out of the box and manufacturers update existing devices, but the sad reality is that the most current version of Google’s mobile operating system is still out of the reach of most Android users.

But that isn’t stopping the rumor mill. Images purportedly showing the next major iteration of Android – called Android N for now – have surfaced online. The folks over at Android Police allege to have gotten a look at Android N in action and have created mock images to show what changes it will bring in terms of the user interface. It looks like Google is cleaning up the interface to make it more visually appealing. The notifications and the quick settings areas are considerably different and look cleaner, though the overall functionality looks to remain the same.

These images are based on an early version of Android N, so things are likely to change as we near the release of Marshmallow’s successor. Android N is also expected to do away with the app drawer and take an iOS approach of putting everything on the homescreens, but that is another change that may or may not be part of the next version of Android given the early nature of these leaks.
