From the screenshots, which were leaked to the sites androidpolice.com and rootzwiki.com, we can see some changes to the current version of the Google OS. The notification bar has been redesigned, the OS features a shiny new launcher and app-drawer, and has taken on a Tron-esque blue tint.

Other new features of Android Ice Cream Sandwich not pictured in the screenshots reportedly include a panorama mode for the camera and a re-tooled Gmail interface. According to Androidpolice.com, the shots are neither "a joke, prank or some cruel attempt to make you click things" amd that they have "the utmost confidence in our source."

Little has been revealed about Android Ice Cream Sandwich until now, with Google keeping their cards tight to their chest about almost anything other than the name. We have heard, however, that Goolge are planning to launch the OS, which will run on both phones and tablets, sometime in Q4 this year. Stand by for more details in the coming weeks, then.
