Google's Android 4.5/5 Lollipop rumored to bring new simple look

Posted Apr 21, 2014 by Milton Este
Android 5 was expected to be released last year. Instead, we were greeted with the arrival of Android 4.4. It's that time of year where Google announces new updates at their annual developers conference.

Will Android be updated to version 4.5 or 5? It seems many including TrustedReviews and IBTimes UK are siding with 4.5 while T3 remains on the fence.
One thing is for certain, the consensus shows a possible new stripped-down design. Previously tipped to be called, "Android 4.5 Lollipop," many are siding with an emerging new name "Moonshine". Whichever the case may be, Google is still changing up the design hoping to have a more unified layout with its web properties.
According to Android Police, icons will be flatter with hard shadows. The idea is to maintain consistency throughout their platform. Take a look at some of the expected changes below.

Others are also wondering about the next generation devices. It is still unclear as to the launch of the three Nexus devices. One or a combination of the Nexus 6, Nexus 8, and Nexus 10 are expected to be revealed. It is highly unlikely for Google not to come up with any devices this year.
