Motorola is expected to roll out Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for owners of Motorola Droid Razr and Razr Max in the second quarter of 2012. The company has released videos detailing Android 4.0 on a Japanese web site, according to GSMArena. The series of videos are supposed to emphasise the changes between the current Gingerbread ROM and the latest ICS ROM. Possibly, it will include an upgraded lock screen which will allow users to swipe and unlock directly to the camera, text messaging, phone and home screen. In addition, even if you are playing the music, controls can be accessed from the lock screen.
The new battery icon appears with more detail on the home screen of the device. The panel indicator will pop up temporarily and the favourite tray will now contain four plus apps button on the bottom of the device's home screen.
Two new camera features have been added including taking a time lapse video and taking hi-res snapshots while shooting video. The user will have to open the camera and choose the video icon. After selecting the time lapse interval following the record button, the video capture begins, also allowing you to take snapshots too.
The company offers Webtop mode for selected smartphones. If the user connects his/her device to a TV or a display in Webtop mode, the screen's UI exhibits that of ICS' tablet mode, and allows the user to utilise the smartphone's display as a trackpad.
