Now according to a newly leaked screenshot, it looks like the icons on the next version of Android may also step away from their silhouette style layouts in favor of a web icon inspired designs.
It's important to note that Google is reportedly still in the design process with this icons, and it is very likely that they may be changed before they are finalized for launch.

Inside the company, this new Android style is allegedly referred to as ‘Moonshine’. Its key characteristics include the long hard shadows of icons and the generally more contrasted colors used throughout.
