#Android N May Re-Developed Homescreen & Navigation Buttons

Google is regularly working on the next edition of its mobile OS – Android N. Whereas the first Android N Developer Preview brought new features, the updates rolled out after that mostly consisted bug fixes and stability improvements. At the current state, Android N Developer Preview doesn’t sport any design changes. However, that might not remain the same when Google officially release the last final version.
Considering sources, Android Police reports that Android N might feature redesigned home and navigation buttons on the upcoming Nexus devices. However, it isn't still clear whether the new navigation bar will be exclusive to Nexus smartphones, or will be available for all devices running stock Android N OS.


As you can clearly see in the leaked image above, the Back and Recent buttons have the same shape as before, except that they are filled in white (which looks a way better). The major change comes in the home button, which is now surrounded by Google colors – yellow, green, red and blue. Long pressing the home button, the colors are set to have animation effects – while it triggers Google Now or Now on Tap.

The Assistant logo consists four Google colors as dots and the change in home button could mean that Google may use the home button to trigger it.

HTC is reportedly working on two Nexus devices codenamed Sailfish and Marlin, both of which are expected to be the first smartphones to run Android N out-of-the-box.
