Android 5.0 – Another interesting concept

Sterling Keys

The arrival of Android 4.4 took us for a spin and has put a delay on the release of Android 5.0. With rumors floating around that Key Lime Pie would be the sweet thing in the Android line, now we’re not too sure what to expect. With Android 4.4 scheduled to be released in October, I guess all we can do is go back to thinking about Android 5.0. Here’s another nifty design behind what Craig Tuttle believes Android 5.0 will look like.

Craig showcased his design in the following video as well, highlighting some of the main features that were changed or updated. You can tell he’s a big fan of Google Now from the video, using a complete integration of the software in his design, including the notification bar and Google Hangouts.

One of the biggest things we'd like to see changed is the new multitaskings creen: in the video above, it is accessed through a side swipe and provides a quick list to last open applications. The smoothness and over-all professionalism for this concept is definitely worth the watch. Real or not, it's quite wonderfully done and something we'd love to see finding its way to Android.

So…what’re we gonna name it?

As we’ve known since the announcement of Android 4.4, we’ve been back at speculating what exactly Android 5.0 will be named. In some sources recently, Key Lime Pie is still making the rounds in hardware spec leaks and other official documents.

Does this mean Google is going to stick with Lime Pie as the next naming convention? Or will they go in a completely different direction?
