Taste the Android Ice Cream Sandwich [Sneak Leak]

Yea there is a new Dish in the android menu! Ice Cream Sandwich, The screenshot and some features have been leaked. Which I found on AndroidPolice and RootzWiki. Both sites say these shots are from authentic source and they are pretty trust-able.  These come from a Nexus S running a build of Ice Cream Sandwich. ICS is not 100% functional , so don’t expect to see it coming out anytime soon. Some features of ICS that we(RootzWiki) know (from there source and speculation):

  • Blue Themed – Like our site (Change theme on bottom)
  • Camera has built in panorama mode
  • Will launch with Google Shopper and NFC Enabled devices will be able to utilize those features
  • Nexus Prime gets it first (expected) then other devices will follow after
  • Not too many changes, just UI things, don’t think requirements are set too high for year old devices to run it
  • The little icon in the bottom right, looks like a tray with multiple apps in it
  • Google search bar embedded on very top like Honeycomb
  • Apps/Widgets launcher a lot like Honeycomb
  • This release is still very early, notice the theming of the power tray
  • Brand-new launcher and app drawer, with screenshots of both featured exclusively onRootzWiki – with what appears to be a task switcher icon on the homescreen, though it could be something else.
  • Gmail has been totally re-themed to go with the new OS (not pictured)
  • Nexus S will be receiving ICS via update, but the “Nexus Prime” will be getting it first
  • Mostly UI changes – many older devices (< 1 year old) should be able to run it.
Here the shots(Some parts of images are blacked out to protect identity of source):-
