Even though Android M has not been updated by a lot of users, Android enthusiasts have already started fascinating over its successor – the Android ‘N.’ According to Android Police, they have been able to get an early look at the notification system in the upcoming Android N. Though they couldn’t post any of the screenshots, they managed to make mockups in view of what they saw.
“Google changed the style of Android’s notification shade and quick settings with the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, and based on an early version of Android N we’ve seen, it’s changing things up again.”
“The look of Android N’s notification shade is being altered, but it’s more than cosmetic. Notifications will include more info, and quick settings are finally creeping in. The full quick settings UI is getting a new paginated style and editing tiles will be easier.”
Key Changes in Notifications
The primary thing you’ll notice is that the notifications are full-width, and the partition between items is less clear. In the list, every item likewise incorporates a line with the app that delivered the notification. That information is accessible in the present warning UI, however, you need to long-press to see it.
Notifications are able to display some limited color text elements as well. App icons are smaller and subtle.
Key Changes in Quick Settings
If you open the quick settings panel, you will see sliding animation as the compressed bar of toggles move down to the full QS. Like the notifications, Quick Settings are now full-width. The expandable WiFi and Bluetooth icons aren’t visible in the version we’ve seen either. There’s an edit button as well, and it indicates that Google is bringing the UI tuner options into the main quick settings.
All this is practically what Android Police has for the time being. We are still way off from seeing the official declaration of Android N.
