  • I would like to remind you that on October 29th, Google has a special event scheduled, one that may unveil the LG Nexus 4 and Android 4.2, plus some other Nexus devices. Now fresh details about the upcoming Android release have leaked out and they sound very interesting. In a previous leak we found out about a new notification system with an extra pull down bar for quick settings.

    We also found out about a brand new Gmail 4.2 app, that was later pulled by Google. Now there are more features unveiled by the same insider, that shared them with Android Police. The novelties are as follows: new gallery changes, multi user accounts and parental controls. We don’t have a clear idea if these features will be found in the final release of Android 4.2, but they’re worth an in depth analysis. The gallery and the camera app are getting new icons, but the graphical details published right now are not the finalized ones.

    The Gallery’s new skin involves a Polaroid-like bottom white label and a background that adopts a light gray color. Multi user accounts are another novelty and various apps will have permissions that take advantage of this feature, like Phone, Setting and SystemUI. Google Play Store will also keep track of what each user installs and only show relevant apps for them. Parental control also comes in right after this feature, being related to it. Purchasing apps from the Store is blocked with a PIN if necessary and the downloads are censored depending on the rating.

    Expect more info to leak out soon!
