Android Lollipop has been around as a developer preview for months, but the real version — complete with all its new Material Design tricks — is due to hit with the Nexus 9 on November 3. We’re getting our first extended looks at the final version on our Nexus 6 and 9 review units, so here are a few GIFs to hold you over until it shows up on your phone.
A lot of the new look depends on app makers (and Google) updating to the new material design guidelines, but there is plenty of freshness in the basic skeleton of the OS too.
New notification panel
Settings that fade when you adjust your brightness
A better lockscreen camera shortcut
Tap to wake on the Nexus 9 (and other devices that support it)
New end-of-scroll animations (and a new look for Gmail)
New multitasking view, with different windows for different Chrome tabs
Multiple user profiles
And lovely new animations
