First look at Android N- New Notification Bar!

Android N is expected to be announced at Google I/O in May and released some point later in 2016. Today, we've got our first look what the new OS update might look like.

Android Police had seen a very early build of the latest Operating system by Google ,the Android7, but they couldn't post the actual screenshots of Android N. Instead the site has made the following mock-ups,shown in the above image, that shows a very similar picture.

If these are accurate, they reveal that notifications on Android 7 are not full-width of the page anymore, and will give you three lines of information compared to the current two in Android 6 Marshmallow....

App icons are now a little smaller in the notifications , sitting on the top left. New color elements are also used for text of notifications, which could be used to highlight the urgency of some nudges.

Quick Settings is also getting a small change ,now they'll be a new bar along the top of the notification panel. You can still bring it down in full to see the rest of the settings, but this new bar makes it easier to toggle some settings without opening up the full menu.

A very important thing to note is that,this is only an early build of Android 7. Things are bound to change before the full release later this year, and if Google feels that this is not what they want the Android 7 to look loke, it may drop some of these features completely
