Google's Android L, which was showcased at the company's IO Developers Conference earlier this year, has become the talk of the town even before its official release by virtue of new functionality sets that the latest operating platform is speculated to bring along.
One important functionality aspect that users can look forward to is the 'Material Design' user-interface that promises a completely new and refreshed UI.
Another interesting aspect of Android L that has led to increased anticipation is, the fact about how Android L will drive popular Google smartphones such as the Nexus series, which are slated to receive the latest OS update much before other devices.
Now, a new rumour has surfaced which indicates that the Android L will reach a chain of Google Nexus devices earlier than expected.
According to the rumour, users of popular Nexus smartphones such as the Google Nexus 5, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 can expect Android L to start seeding as early as late October.
This means that Android L should be launched along with the highly anticipated Google Nexus 6 smartphone (which is expected to be supplied by Motorola) in October this year.
Also, with Google known to launch its most important offerings (both hardware and software) during the fall, it should come as no surprise if we get to witness the Nexus 6 and Android L being made official together.
Rumour mills had earlier hinted at the Google Nexus 6 featuring Android L straight out of the box.
Along with the Nexus 6, two other Nexus devices, tentatively termed Nexus 8 'Volantis' and Nexus 9, are expected to be launched this year. These devices are also said to run on the Android L operating platform.
As for the new feature set that users can look-out for within Google's highly anticipated OS, there is of course the Material design UI aspect, along with this, Android L also incorporates greater than 5,000 application programming interfaces (API) that should naturally lead to an enhancement in the number of applications for the platform.
Also, Android L, once official is also slated to feature support for multiple users, a fact evident by a recent post in Google's Android Developer Preview' developer forum.
In the developer forum, a Google project team member clearly gives enough indications regarding the 'multiple user-multiple account' concept in smartphones, and also clearly states that this aspect has already been implemented by Google's development team, within the next Android public build release.
However, the biggest among all the above functionality aspects should be the 'Material design UI,' which should make Nexus devices more personalised and intuitive.
