The first photos of a phone running Ice Cream Sandwich have been leaked out, and we get to see a little bit of the UI running on a Samsung Nexus S (T-Mobile USA). Visually, things look a bit different, with a less AMOLED-friendly blue color scheme and a revamped launcher and app drawer. A little back story goes along with this from the fellow who leaked it out -- expect a native panorama mode for the camera (finally), and an all-new look to the GMail app. The OS will now have Google Shopper integrated, and NFC-enabled devices will be able to utilize those features, and after it launches on the next Nexus device, it's expected to roll out for the Nexus S.
If these shots are legit, and all things point to them being so, things are still in the early stages. We also don't get to see anything incriminating or confidential, so there's a lot of blacked out space in the pictures. This is to be expected, as we're not supposed to be seeing these just yet.It's not a lot to go on, but just seeing it on a device is exciting enough. Jump past the break to see the rest of the pics.
And the really big thing we don't yet see is how all this ties the phone and tablet OSes together. Stay tuned, folks.
