The rumour mill isn't just delivering fresh new iOS 8 rumours, it's also coming up with cool stuff on the Android side of the equation.

Android 4.5 is due for a release later this year, probably around Google's I/O conference for developers in the summer.

And now we might have just had our first good look at the new version. Android Police posted a set of screenshots supposedly showing the new icons and background.

Codenamed 'Moonshine' the update looks like a big visual refresh, and will also bring some great new features including integration with Android Wear smartwatches and other wearable tech.

Take a look at the video to get a sense of where Android is going - and why you might want to choose a Nexus 5, which will get the update first, over one of the other great Android phones on the market.
