Another Gmail redesign surfaces, looks to follow latest Google+ UI
The leak comes from Yoel Kaseb, who is the same person that posted the Google+ redesign images last month that showed some of the changes that came in the G+ update that pushed out earlier this week. There are a lot of differences between the two Gmail leaks though, so it is hard to tell how the two are connected, or if they are connected at all. We don't know if the version Kaseb has is newer than the one Geek.com posted, or if the versions are completely different test paths. Both use the big plus symbol in the bottom right as how you compose a new message, but that's where the similarities end.
The new redesign shows a similar idea to the latest version of Google+, which abandons the hamburger menu in favor of a dropdown from the top bar. Other than those two items, the new images look quite a bit like the current version of Gmail. It doesn't even include the full color top bar which we have seen as part of the Google+ redesign as well as the new version of Google Keep.
Whatever the truth is, it seems like there is a redesign in the works, and we wouldn't be surprised to get more answers about all of it at Google I/O next month.
