New Gmail Design May Be In The Works

After the new UI redesign at Google+ and Google Maps, which application will Google redesign next? Multiple online sources say Gmail may be the next to receive a new UI look on all devices.

Gmail IO 2013

Available for all platforms, sources over at Android Police reveal leaked photos showing 5 tabs for Gmail, including Main, Social, Offers, Notifications, and Forums. These tabs will be used for organizing emails.

The Main tab is for main emails from random individuals, or people one would normally talk to across Gmail or contacts. Emails from social platforms sending notifications will be categorized in the Social tab. Emails from sites sending offers, promotions, or deals will be categorized in the Promotions tab. Emails requesting updates or new action items such as a payment will go into the Updates tab. And emails from updates on forum websites will be categorized into the Forums category.

It is believed this update will be released within the next couple of weeks.
