Google’s forthcoming Android L operating system has enjoyed a test drive on one of the finest Android handsets currently on the market.

Sammobile has managed to nab a test device running the new software, showing Android L beneath that the Samsung TouchWiz UI on the Galaxy S5

The leaked version appears to be very similar to the current software with a touch of Google’s new Material Design language also on show.

The website captured the preview on video so check out the clip below to take a look at how Android L may look on your Galaxy S5 once it launches later this year, perhaps as soon as December.
