[Updated: More screenshots!] Samsung rolls out Grace UX update for the Galaxy Note 5 in South Korea

Samsung has started distributing a much-anticipated update for the Korea Telecom variant of the Galaxy Note 5 in South Korea. While the upgrade doesn’t bring Nougat to the handset, it does bundle a build of Marshmallow that’s skinned with the firm’s much-anticipated Grace user interface, which debuted on the Galaxy Note 7, together with a multitude of additional bug fixes, stability improvements.

As outlined in the user manual that surfaced for the Galaxy Grand Prime (2016) a couple of months ago, Grace UX is heavily based on Android 6.0.1 and offers users neat new features like Wide Selfie, Ultra Power Saving Mode, Smart Manager, Blue Light Filter and Game Tools. It’s a lot cleaner than previous builds of TouchWiz and sports smoother animations.

Like usual, the update — firmware version KKU2CPI1 — is being pushed out in stages, so don’t be alarmed if you haven’t received a notification prompting you to install the upgrade just yet. If you own a Korea Telecom-branded model of the Galaxy Note 5 and would like to see if the upgrade is ready for your handset, simply head into Settings » About Device » Software Update » Update Now.

Thanks for the screenshots, Matthew!

Hi
This UI is not grace! It is absolutely disgrace and useless with its white surface and pale fonts!! It is maybe (but only maybe) good on the Samson’s AMO LED displays!! It is the step backward!!

Note 5 screen is AMOLED. Also, you can choose one of many dark themes available, and you can change the system font and font size.

So note 5 gets the latest of note 7 but note 4 gets nothing from note 5, i really regret buying paying devices from u samsung in the future even if u sell a space rocket for 1$ i won’t buy it and iam absolutely sure that most of note 4 owners is thinking the same.

You’re absolutely right buddy. But except for the note 5 GUI & theme store, they managed to give us s-pen features like note 5 air command, screenoff memo and scroll capture. If they would have given us all of note 5’s software features, I can bet very few people would have brought the note 5 because its design was such an epic failure along with no removable battery, no ir blaster and no sdcard slot! 😀 This is why we note 4 users have custom roms 😉

The main reason the note 5 is being updated is because the note 7 fail.

They should gone with the S7 Grace UX instead of the N7 Grace UX.

Indeed. It is weird they seem to create several versions of the Grace UX. Can’t all the UI teams sit together, plan ahead and make a UI concept for ALL current devices that are eligible for updates.

Also they update apps like S-Health, Music, Internet, etc from the Play Store. Why don’t they update Gallery, S-Planner, E-Mail, Contact through the store. If Google can update all their Pixel/Nexus system apps, so can Samsung.

If the Note5 is getting it why isn’t the S6 edge+. Doesn’t seem like Samsung is really trying with that flagship. took an extra few months to get a feature/correction the Note5 received over a security update. What I find hard to believe is that the S6 edge+ is still more expensive than the S7 and S7 edge

Could you elaborate on what you mean exactly? The source posted this 18h ago, so if we missed something please let us know.

As in, you’ve been reporting Samsung news rather slowly. Like the fact that the Gear S2 received the Gear S3 firmware in Turkey and no one here has reported on it.

And that’s okay. They are not superman that they can report each and everything in the world about Samsung. It’s quite possible that they will be late sometimes. I see no reason to have a dig at them just for this reason. I am sure when they get a source, they will immediately publish a news.

yet they constantly post deals and firmware news exclusively for the US?! I understand Korea because they tend to get the latest first. but Samsung is a worldwide seller and has a worldwide audience. They’ve looked for writers before, and I hope that next time they do, they’ll look further afield than the US
