Does Android 4.5 be like this?

Android 4.4 KitKat has brought some user interface changes, some rational and welcome, some less so. The latter cause disparity and inconsistency between parts of the OS. A website designer Pixel Shift has devised a concept with proposed solutions to these problems, which would then be the next version of Android. As the basis of the design, he naturally used the Nexus 5.

First, the settings have been redesigned, the theme color has been changed, and some buttons have been redesigned. Personally, I find this look very similar to iOS before the last update to iOS7, but maybe that's not bad in itself. It looks much lighter than the blue with black background that Android now has. Still in the smoothing line, the volume adjustment became more oval as well as transparent. So far I find the choices successful, but I think the designer did not take into account the increased battery consumption that a white background entails (with the situation of the batteries as it is, any way to conserve power, even minimal). , should be considered).

<p>In addition, it has incorporated some functions that are now available only for tablets, such as allowing volumes to be adjusted anywhere in the system, all following the same design line that avoids sharp edges and angles. The calculator app, which was solemnly ignored in the latest versions of Android, has also been reworked in this concept.</p><div class='code-block code-block-3' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; display: block; clear: both;'>

The new calculator is the option of volume adjustments. / Pixel Shift
<p>Finally, the camera application was also reworked. With the changes brought by the KitKat 4.4 update, it has been the target of much criticism. The biggest change involves removing the arc controls to advanced settings, incorporating an easier-to-use transparent bar. Another change concerns maintaining true aspect ratios at all times.</p>

The designer proposed some more ideas to make future versions of OS more coherent. Although it looks more like iOS, I have to admit that the interface has been lighter and cleaner. What did you think about these change proposals for Android 4.5?
