Google has taken the stage in Hong Kong to make the next version of Android OS, nicknamed Ice Cream Sandwich, a thing of reality. Better known as Android 4.0 appears to offer a massive redesign to the user interface and adds a plethora of new features. So here’s what’s new: first, we’re seeing a new notification menu, as well as the ability to take native screenshots, a modern typeface dubbed “Roboto,” and an improved task manager. ICS also includes a fancy unlocking method called “Face Unlock,” which uses facial recognition to ensure strangers can’t use your phone without permission. Ice Cream Sandwich also includes enhancements in almost every native app within Android itself. After the break, we’ll cover all of the nitty gritty details.
