The update will arrive later this year as Microsoft plans to bring in more use of animations, visuals, blur effects, transparency and other customizations. It all started from Aero Glass of Windows vista and Windows 7 to Metro of Windows 8 and now Neon. The leak of Windows 10 neon design screenshot came from MSPoweruser. From the leaked screenshots, it looks like Neon will adopt roots of Metro, but, with minor tweaks, changes and updates.

Reportedly, Microsoft is introducing new element, which uses increase usage of transparency. It is called as “Acrylic” which is for overall Windows 10 design. It will be a mode for developers to further customize the appearance of their universal apps. Not only this, Project Neon focuses also on Microsoft’s efforts with 3D and HoloLens.

However, most of the changes are related with UI, which are minor changes. Rather than major overhaul of Windows 10. The Neon update is set to arrive in sometime later in future. More specifically, it will come out in Redstone 3 which comes after Redstone 2 also known as Creators update.
