Leak points to major redesign in upcoming new version of Android

Apple introduced a major reimagining of its mobile software last year when it released iOS 7, and since then the trend in mobile has been “flat.” Several companies including Samsung and HTC have flattened their user interfaces a bit since then, and they have also turned to the use of brighter colors to accent apps, just as Apple did in iOS 7. Now, it looks like Google may be planning to follow suit and offer a slightly flatter take on Android in an upcoming major redesign.A leaked screenshot that supposedly reveals an upcoming version of Android code-named “Moonshine” shows a completely overhauled set of app icons. The icons have been flattened slightly and also redesigned to more closely match the icons Google uses on the web for its various services.
