I won’t lie to you; while I’ve owned Android devices in the past, I’m definitely more of an iOS man, and it never ceases to amaze my iBrain what serves to excite you Google lot.
Take these Android L screenshots for example. I look at them and think: ‘Whatever,’ but there’s a good chance someone somewhere will pitch a trouser tent.
The Chromium Issue Tracker is becoming an increasingly popular source of Android leaks, and that’s exactly where Reddit user Doopl went snooping around, ultimately coming up with a couple of – what appear to be – Android L screenshots (since removed at the source).
Again, there’s nothing particularly jaw-dropping here, but the Google account login thingy looks significantly different from what we’re used to. Excited yet?
How about an ‘L’ placeholder in the leftmost corner of the status bar, the next version of Android almost certainly beginning with an L (Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, FroYo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, KitKat, L…).
There’s also a bell with a line through it, which would normally suggest Silent mode, though it’s suggested that it might pertain to new Google Now-style notifications, and the optional ability to stop them encroaching on whatever you’re doing.
For what it’s worth, the Android L screenshots appear to have come from a Google Nexus 4, with a resolution of 1280 x 768.
And that’s the end of that. Expect to learn more about Android L at Google I/O 2014 later this week. Maybe.
