Redesigned software keys from Android 4.4.3 leaked out

Android 4.4.3 Buttons

We are well aware that Android 4.4.3 is on its way to compatible devices, but there’s still no proper idea as to what major changes the new update will bring to the table. And just when we started thinking that it’s merely an incremental update, a new image has shown us what appears to be redesigned onscreen navigation buttons.

As you can see above, it’s significantly different from what Google offers now, which has been around since the days of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, so one would say that a refresh was long overdue.

The home button appears to be ditched in favor of the Google button, which could take users directly to the home page while a long press would¬†open Google Now, just like it does now. So we don’t think it will be a lot different in terms of functionality.

It is said that the Google button will be replaced by a home button while within an app, although there’s no clarification on this yet. We can’t help but treat this leak with skepticism, at least until we have confirmation from Google. What’s your take on this revelation? Do you see it coming to fruition?

  1. that’s sucks!!! I like old buttons ūüôā I don’t want Google button!!! Can Google not come with anythink better?

  2. As long as I can disable Now I am fine. I like a dedicated Home button. I don’t need Google messing with it so that it is not consistent throughout the system.

  3. Dude, they haven’t leaked out… the owner of the image has said on Google+ that he got the nav bars from SoftKeyz APK and he is not running Android 4.4.3
