Highlights
  • Galaxy Note 5 users start receiving Note 7's Grace UX
  • The update is being rollout in South Korea
  • It brings software features of the Note 7 to Note 5

Samsung has started rolling out Galaxy Note 7's Grace UX to last year's Galaxy Note 5. According to user reports, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 users in South Korea have been receiving an over-the-air (OTA) update that brings an all-new software experience. To recall, Samsung introduced the new Grace UX with its Galaxy Note 7 smartphone earlier this year.

A forum post at XDA Developers suggests that the update is about 600MB in size, and brings various UX features of the Galaxy Note 7 to Galaxy Note 5. Some of the new features that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 users are receiving include Blue light Filter, Ultra power saving mode, Smart manager, and Wide selfie among others. The Galaxy Note 5 update with Grace UX is currently rolling out to users in South Korea, though it can be expected to be available for more users in the coming days.

Despite the update, the Galaxy Note 5 still runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Galaxy Note 5 users can manually check for the update via Settings > About Device > Software Update. Unfortunately, Samsung is yet to confirm broader update plans for the Galaxy Note 5.

To recall, Samsung last month suspended all productions of the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone and also halted sales worldwide. The company in a desperate move also advised customers to stop using the device following reports that units were catching fire. In India, Samsung launched the flagship phablet for 2016 at Rs. 59,900.

Recently, the South Korean giant launched Android 7.0 Galaxy Beta Program for Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. We expect the Android Nougat update for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge to roll out soon.
