Ice Cream Sandwich Gets Leaked On Video

So far all we had regarding the Ice Cream Sandwich UI was a couple of screenshots and the word of an anonymous 4chan user. But now someone has managed to hold a video of Ice Cream Sandwich running on the Nexus S.

The device was allegedly bought off eBay and much to the surprise of the buyer (and everyone else) it was found to be running Ice Cream Sandwich. Of course, the buyer then wasted no time in putting up a video of the UI for everyone's viewing pleasure.

One see at the UI and we can see it matches what we have already seen of it. The homeclassy screen now has four icons at the bottom next to the application drawer button, the folder function seems to have had a makeover, there's a recent see notification classy screen and an application drawer that looks straight out of Honeycomb as does the recent task manager with large thumbnail images of the running apps.

What we haven't seen before is the recent lock screen. You can now see that you will be able to launch the capturing camera app correct from the lock screen. Android phones from HTC and other OEMs have had this functionality before but it's only now that Android is getting it by default. Hopefully this feature is customizable so you will be able to add other functions as well other than the capturing camera app.

The capturing camera app itself is recent as well. Other than the UI changes, you can also see the addition of a panorama mode

The changes are nice and we're sure there will be more under the hood that we are not seeing in the video. Hopefully, stuff like GPU accelerated UI and optimization for Central Processing Units (CPUs) with multiple cores will be present as well.
