Android Lollipop demonstrated on the Samsung Galaxy S5

A video has surfaced showing a test build of Android L (LRW58J) running on a Samsung Galaxy S5. The source has also confirmed that the final name of  the L release will indeed be Android Lollipop.

The eight and a half minute long video shows the Galaxy S5 running Android Lollipop and more specifically how the new Material Design guidelines have been implemented within Samsung's TouchWiz user interface. We can see that the Dialler, Messages, Memo, and Clock apps (among others) have been redesigned from the ground up in in alignment with Material Design. However many animations are still missing, given this is still a test build.

One of the biggest changes is the theme, which is now predominantly white, and a nice change from the bluish visuals. Lockscreen widgets are either missing or not going to make the final cut, by the way, though the heads-up notification that we've come to love are there. Another stand-out new feature is MirrorLink, which will allow you to connect your Samsung phone to your car's infotainment system.
