AndroidPolice and Rootzwiki are claiming to have received the screenshots for the upcoming Android OS Ice Cream Sandwich or Android ICS. These screenshots are claimed to be real and are n work of a photoshop artist.
The whole Android OS now seems to have adopted a Blueish theme ditching the greens and oranges of Gingerbread. Since Ice cream sandwich is aimed to unify Tablets and phones, the UI is pretty much like the Honeycomb blue or more precisely modders would recognize it as Cyanogenmod inspired blue.
Android ICS is going to be made available first on Nexus S and then would ship with Samsung Prime aka Nexus 3.
The Google Nexus Prime would ditch physical menu keys and would feature a super high 720p -resolution display, “Super AMOLED HD” display designed and manufactured by Samsung. The display branding confirms that Samsung would be the one that would actually be building Nexus Prime with a TI OMAP 4460 dual-core processor 1.2Ghz or 1.4Ghz or even 1.5Ghz.
The current build number for Android ICS is IRK36B, this may or may not be the final build.
Other Android Ice Cream Sandwich facts:
- Brand-new launcher and app drawer, and a task switcher icon on the homescreen, though it could be something else.
- Camera now has a panorama mode (not pictured)
- Gmail has been totally re-themed to go with the new OS (not pictured)
