- Nicer looking homescreen that no longer has boxed icons.
- Intelligent Assistant – yup, the Canadian company will offer a Siri of its own. We still lack many details, though.
- New keyboard layout and colors – more minimalist style layout and new color schemes, including black with red, black and red.
- Advanced Interaction Features – so that your screen is automatically turned off when the device is upside down or inside pocket.
- New camera features – including support for panoramic photos, ability to record video in 720p at 30 and 60 fps, auto HDR suggest (when conditions require), and more.
- Smart Search
- Revamped Music Player
- Design change in controls and buttons
- Improved performance – the system minimizes and maximizes application almost instantly giving a more pleasant browsing experience.
