More information about Android’s new interface: Material NEXT

Lately, there has been unofficial information about Android 12, mainly thanks to XDA. Android’s new interface and design language is tentatively called “Material Next” – a further development of “Material Design”.

The interface that has previously been shown in screenshots is said to be a specific Google theme called “Silk”, which may only be available on Pixel phones. Android’s expanded theme support could, in the long run, at best mean that manufacturers can create their own interface without profound changes, and that users can easily activate a more “vanilla” -like interface.

Even if there are no screenshots showing the changes, the layout of the lock screen should have been redone, with greater customization options such as changing the clock. Even the screen lock screen can be redesigned, and the lock screen is said to offer access to the quick controls for smart homes. Those controls are currently only displayed in the shutdown menu.

The quick settings in the notification menu must at the same time have a new layout. Android 11 shows significantly fewer quick settings than Android 10, something that was not appreciated by everyone. A mysterious “letterbox” function is said to allow apps to be placed in windows. Whether it is intended for a desktop mode or something completely different remains to be seen, if now the task is correct.

XDA also mentions other small things, such as the fact that Android 12 offers improved screen rotation, a more polished picture-in-picture function, a dedicated game mode, and an accessibility mode that mutes valid colors.
