Motorola Mobility has showed off its freshened up user interface for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, for a less cluttered UI than the previous Gingerbread skin.
The American mobile device maker released some videos on its Japanese site that provided details to expect from the revamped UI. The new UI, which offers a reasonably sweeter Ice Cream Sandwich skin, has more eye candy as opposed to the obtrusive look and feel of the current MotoSwitch interface.
One of the most notable modifications is the lock screen, which Motorola revamped to include shortcuts for messaging and the dialer. Also included is a new camera app that allows users to capture photos during video recordings, a feature similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy S III and HTC One X.
In the new skin, Motorola disposed of its social media aggregator app, and now urges customers to download directly Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn apps from the Google Play Store.
The company also added the usual range of ICS features and services, including Face Unlock, screenshot functionality, resizable widgets and homescreen folder creation.
Motorola recently informed its customers that their phones will not receive an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which include owners of smartphones such as the Defy Mini, Defy+, Milestone 2 and Motorola Motoluxe.
