While the Galaxy Note 7 is no longer available for purchase due to overheating issues, Samsung showed off some attractive software features with the device. These elements are now being ported onto the Galaxy Note 5 through an update. It brings the Grace UX to the fore, with features like Blue light Filter, Ultra Power Saving Mode, Smart Manager, and Wide Selfie, which will certainly enhance the user experience of the customers.
The Galaxy Note 5 remains the only Note flagship available right now, so it’s good to see Samsung sending out an update to the device. Surprisingly, the Note 5 is yet to get the Android 7.0 update, as this new software keeps the Android version on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. But Samsung has already started working on the Nougat update, so it wouldn’t be long for the official update to be sent out.
The Grace UX update for the Note 5 weighs in at 600MB, so be sure to remain on a Wi-Fi network to avoid any unnecessary data charges. The update has only been spotted in South Korea at the moment, but the OTA notification should soon arrive on all units across the world.
Following the demise of the Galaxy Note 7, the Galaxy S7 and the S7 edge are the only flagships at the moment. This has prompted the company to unveil the Galaxy S8, sooner than expected.
