In the new system, we will see new customization center, the updated Google Play and Now, and butter after the plan and a new plan, Project Roadrunner.
Before we begin introduce Android 4.2 before, still have some about Nexus plan that is worth to share it.
As we have heard about that before this year, the next generation of Nexus equipment may come from several hardware manufacturers. The news authenticity of more high up, but recently we also began to hear rumors Nexus next generation will be more than by Google select OEM, any manufacturers can produce their own Nexus equipment.
According to the A&M news, new Nexus plan will become like the authentication form, manufacturers must, in accordance with certain request to manufacture equipment, only to achieve this standard can be allowed to use Nexus brand. But equipment name won't be forced named "Nexus", but will only on the packet was printed on a Logo, shows that this is a Nexus conform to the quality standards of Android equipment. The specific standard we also don't know, but we know it must have for streaming media prepared 64 MB safety storage space, NFC, of course, also run primary Android system.
This is what I am most interested in a. The user can change in Customization Center call ringtone, language, wallpaper, desktop starter and all other can personalized mobile phone options. All of these can be set menu change, but Customization Center will these options concentrates in together, interface and more friendly.
The system interface changes will also realize, Customization Center will provide multiple templates, which can be applied to the entire system, including the use of ICONS will change together. Sounds and CyanogenMod "the theme selection" function some similar. This will allow hardware manufacturers can show oneself to users of the UI, don't have to force the user to use they don't like third party UI, and at the same time can also through OTA to continuously improve. But at present the function also stay in hearsay phase, has not been official confirmed.
