Android N Redefined Notification Bar and Quick Setting, Mock Up

Android N announcement is right around the corner, it is expected to be announced in Google I/O on May. Here we have quick sneak peek into the redefined Notification bar and quick setting. 

Android Police reports an early look at the redefined Android N Notification bar and Quick setting UI, thanks to folks at Android Police. As you could see, the notification bar has quick toggle having all the necessary quick settings at top, with that same grey background which has been a part from Android Lollipop as a family. 

Quick setting toggle appears with some quick access icons and in the quick setting area there seems to be two dots, which might have more quick settings too and notifications area also doesn't seem to have much difference. 

These mockups are based on early Android N screenshots and could vary at the time of developer preview and nothing is 100% until it becomes official.
