It is increasingly evident that in the next version of Android will see an interface change. Today we see how it could change the notification bar, both at shadows as icons.
Android 4.4 Kit Kat has brought the biggest change in the platform interface from Ice Cream Sandwich. Although not transform anything, if it brought a change in the prevalence of cyan, which was replaced by white. In addition, meant the consolidation of the interface cards at the same time that we could see how the notification bar took in certain situations a slight touch iOS becoming semi-transparent, or since directly it was hiding by means of the new immersive mode.
It seems to be confirming that in the new version of Android, which predictably will be presented in the Google I/O of the week coming, we will see a more radical redesign, which so far has taken the name of Quantum Paper. As noted, in the web of the Google I/O is displayed a mockup of a Nexus 5 that integrates a notification bar that changes slightly against the current of Kit Kat. The slight shadow, having the AOSP or the Sense interface would be eliminated and would be passed completely to our IOS 7, as it has LG in the new interface recently premiered on LG G3.
As we can see, the changes would be very light but maybe its introduction would bring more caused by the interface which would be Quantum Paper. We must remember that the updates that Google is doing in recent months are in the spirit of providing wider bars and colorful apps to their statements, eliminating the gray tones and filling them with flat colors, as we have seen in Google+ or leaks about the new look of Gmail.
We can only wait 5 days to see how this ends. We more or less like the changes made, what we want is to end up with the perennial problem of the platform: the lack of homogeneity in the appearance of applications. A problem we see even in applications from Google.
