Android 12 is supposed to bring lots of UI changes and new features. We earlier provided you with the first look at these changes via Android 12 leaks. Now, the Android 12 developer preview 3 (DP3) provides a good look at how these UI changes and new features look like currently though Google may further refine these before public release.
Android 12 features a redesigned Lock-screen and quick settings UI. It also features a new theming system called “Monet”. This wallpaper-based theming system can even recolor the 3rd party Android apps. Finally the ripple animation is there that looks cool.
Android 12 Lock-screen and quick settings UI changes:
Coming to the Android 12 Lock-screen and quick settings UI changes, here is your latest look at them. These screenshots also reveal how the new theming system works on Android 12. The quick-settings panel and the quick-settings icons look completely redesigned.
Android 12 theming system Monet:
The Android 12 theming system Monet takes a predominant color from the wallpaper and recolors the UI. On DP3 the Dark theme applied by Monet looks much more refined.
The Android 12 DP3 shows a refined new animation called “ripple animation”. Short video shows how the ripple animation looks like while toggling on options.
As seen in the leaks, the new patterned ripple design has changed. Instead of covering the entire ripple with noise, only the edges have noise now. It also animates faster and only spreads horizontally, similar to the old ripple. Here's a more detailed video of the ripple: pic.twitter.com/zsc7xG3SFH— kdrag0n (@kdrag0n) April 21, 2021
And this is how the ripple animation looks like when the smartphone starts charging.
Here's the charging ripple animation in action on DP3. It looks more or less the same as the leaked build. pic.twitter.com/wpSIJZIIpM— kdrag0n (@kdrag0n) April 22, 2021
