Android L's Material Design principles explained by Google's Roman Nurik (video)
posted by Victor H. / Aug 06, 2014, 5:52 AM
Android L comes with a brand new Material Design that is a huge evolution in the looks of Android and a step toward a more modern-looking design with simple, clutter-free visuals.
To better understand the new design and how new apps should be redesigned to fit in those new realities, the Android Developers channel has posted an explanatory video by Google engineer Roman Nurik. Nurik is best known for his DashClock widget and Muzei live wallpaper app.
To explain the Material Design principles in Android L, the engineer uses the Google I/O 2014 app. Every year, Google releases a new I/O companion app that is more than what it looks on the surface: it’s an illustration of all the design and coding principles that developers are advised to adopt. What drove the development of this year’s Google I/O 2014? Find out in the video below.

If it is the Material design you want; then I wouldn't get my hopes up since Samsung is going to replace it with their TouchWiz Skin, unless that gets a material-like design too

I hope It'll(touchwiz) gets a material like design . I seriously think every one should take Motorola's approach (providing stock experience). Stock UI is always simple and clean also modern which doesn't need high end specs to run smooth. All these skins and bloats making phones buggy (low-mid range) also they don't provide update by saying hardware is not capable of running the new update, but the real reason is rely on OEM's laziness,skin,bloat and slow carriers. I hope google should be a bit more strict and promise 2 big updates for every phones or 2 year support. I love the way MICROSOFT doing it. All those wp8 devices(except htc 8s) will receive wp8.1 update 1.

It probably won't, since it will be releasing in September and Google have said that the Android One series which will have Android L will only start selling in October.

You can implement most of material design right now, it just doesn't have some of the fancier movements and animations (some are available in kitkat). Asus' ZenUI for example is very very material at the moment and likely, will be completely material on L release. HTC also has some similarity and likely will adapt. Samsung might decide to be the village idiot on this one, but at the moment they are losing ground to those who are following the community's desires, so there is hope they will learn.
