With WWDC 2014 from Apple, it makes me wonder what Google and Matias Duarte have in store for the next generation Android OS ?

It seems it's been a long while since Google did a major Android update, being 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich back in 2011 three years ago.

Right now stock Android seems style wise like a mixed bag of sorts, still some of the old dark Holo theme, while also the newer brighter card style stuff from Google Now launcher. And it doesn't look or feel consistent anymore, like a some of the old ICS stuff with KK stuff, but not 100% one single design road.

Do you think Google plans a major update and all new look, design, and feel to Android with a 5.0 release soon ? Or will Google just keep tweaking Android a little bit every year, with point releases like a 4.5 this Summer or Fall ?

Google I/O is in two weeks.

PS: Matias Duarte is their designer guy. He doesn't do much for the actual development, as far as I know. He's the John Ive from Google.
