Android 5.0 concept video has us dreaming beyond KitKat

Earlier this year we showed you guys some neat Android 5.0 concept images by some creative Android lovers before 4.4 KitKat was official, but today we have something even better. A stunning and impressive video has just appeared with a better sense of design and direction in line with Google, and Google Now, and it has us pretty excited. Even if it's only a fake fan-made concept video.

A guy named Craig Tuttle has released a quick and rather exciting video on YouTube showing his thoughts and vision for Android 5.0 Lollipop, or whatever Google might call it. He plays off the KitKat, Key Lime Pie and Android 5.0 thing at the end, but we're more interested in what he's come up with. It's so impressive we'd love to see it in Android.

With the updates to Google Maps, Google Keep, YouTube and more we know Google is headed in this Now "cards" direction, and Craig shows us what a deeply integrated Google Now cards system could look like. His Google Now unified notification pull-down bar is excellent, and so is the new white font. Well, we like everything we're seeing, so take a peek below.

You'll quickly notice the Holo-blue colors have been replaced with white, and the entire UI has a white-out or opaque white design. We've actually heard this in a rumor or two, but will have to wait and see what Google actually does with Android 4.4 and 5.0 when that time comes.

We aren't expecting too many major changes with the minor update to Android 4.4 KitKat, but surely 5.0 will bring drastic changes to the look and feel. The Google Now additions seem somewhat realistic, and we thought this was certainly worth sharing with you all. Thoughts?

    How does one make these UI concepts? I have some ideas but I don’t know how to do it. Is it just a combination of photoshop and adobe premiere?

      probably done with Adobe After effects

    Once again, ‘is it leaked from Google?’ No? Well it isn’t going to look like this then.

      Concept…… yes. Concept

        I think it can only be called a “concept” if it comes people who’s responsible for making the thing… I’d call this an imagination at best.

    I really hope someone at Google sees this and takes a liking to it. This is a magnificent concept and it should get some recognition. It’s a GREAT idea. I just hope I get to see more of it in the future. The best part about it is that it could easily be integrated into android without having to use magic. (lol) Two thumbs up for this guy!
