An Android phone follower can imagine how android 5.0 could look like. Jinesh Shah, an electrical engineering student at the University of Michigan has shown various features of the design posted on his Google plus account. It is expected that Android 5.0 may beat the previous Android version because of its interesting minimal design and colorful user interface.
The home screen is designed in a way that it has a clock on its top and a Google search widget at the bottom of the screen. Hangouts and camera applications are dominant along with the search widget. The lock screen is weltered, as it only includes two elements, a scrollable Google widget amalgamated with notifications and a voice search. The Google widget is already open and you don't need to activate it and it will always show relevant information as soon as you turn it on. The other widgets are hidden and the User can find it easily by simple swipe down. The user can swipe left and right to use the widgets.
No one knows yet when Android 5.0 will arrive. This is just a concept given be Jinesh shah about android 5.0. Android 5.0 was believed to arrive at Google I/O and it was called Key Lime Pie. Google has not announced any information related to Android OS yet. That's quite surprising for everyone. The next war in mobile OS is between Apple's recently revealed OS and Google's upcoming OS update.
Now, this concept evokes a question will people like this idea? Would people like Google to add some features from it? Or they exactly want the same OS for Android 5.0?
According to Canalys, a notable research company, Android now dominates other operating systems and makes up 59.5% of the entire market as of first quarter 2013. The new data includes all kinds of smart devices such as tablets, smartphones and crossovers or "phablets".
Apple comes in a far second at 19.3%. However, it must be noted that the reason Apple seems to overly lag behind is because it exclusively sells its own operating system.
Android, on the other hand, is being distributed by various OEMs such as Samsung, Sony, Lenovo, Huawei, and other manufacturers that prefer to use it over other platforms.
Based on the tables provided by Canalys, Samsung leads the pack for branded smart device shipments at 26.6%. Meanwhile, a big chunk of the smart device shipment pie belongs to "un-branded" units, that make up 42.8%.
Another thing to note is that Microsoft presently represents 18.1% of the OS market, just 1.2% shy from Apple's share, as seen on the table on the right. Apple really does need to step up its game and introduce a new device to reverse the trend if it wants to stay in the market.
