Screenshots of Android "L" Release Showed up on Reddit [Photo]

24 June, 2014 Android

Android 5.0


A Screenshot of the upcoming Android 5.0 "L" Release has been accidentally leaked from Chromium Issue Tracker. The screenshot leaked on Reddit showing "L" letter on the status bar indicating the Android version.


Android 5.0 L


The screenshot shows a Google account login dialog that looks substantially different from the current implementation, and what appears to be a re-styled Chrome with design elements from Quantum. Additionally, the status bar shows a place holder "L" icon, and a bell icon that sources tell us is indicative of a new feature in L that will offer "limited interruptions," basically muting or partially muting notifications. Since heads-up notifications are expected to appear in L (significantly re-styled to look more like Google Now cards), this feature may keep them from popping-up over whatever the user is working on.


The shots are 1280x768, indicating that they're from a Nexus 4. Also of note is the fact that the screenshots don't show background protection behind status and nav bars.
