Google is all set to pull the curtains off from the next version of Android, the Android L. Android L has already been shown off by Google and the improvements are good enough to tempt the users for this greatest build of Android. The name, so far is rumored to be Android Lemon Meringue Pie, but there hasn’t been any official word or hint about the real name of Android L. What makes Android L look cool are the graphical changes, that are a big move from previous Android versions. Android L will have a material design user interface, that will let the users interact with the elements on the device just like they interact with real life objects. A part from that, the lock screen on Android L has completely been revamped, the new lock screen will show all the notifications as soon as you press the lock key, just like iOS 7 and iOS 8. This means the users won’t always have to unlock the device and pull down the notification bar in order to see what’s going around the world and what notifications are left for them. There’s going to be a number of other cool features on Android L as well that will enhance the user experience on Android device better then ever before.
As off now, Android L’s release date isn’t known, but it is expected to be a part of the Nexus X, that is expected to be unveiled in sometime around October, 2014. Once Android L is out, some of the mainstream / flagship devices will get this update while some devices will never get a chance to taste the greatest Android version. Since it’s quite away and you aren’t even sure you will get this on your device or not, you may feel a bit downcast, but let’s just not wait for the update and try to taste the Android L somehow on your current Android device having Android 4.0+.
