I want to design a transparent layout with circle and icon like Nokia cam: http://i.stack.imgur.com/QF7AH.jpg

How should I create a layout to duplicate this?

I don't think that duplicating this directly in XML is possible without a Custom View. Check out the Android Developer Site to get a better understanding on how Custom Views work.

Good luck!
