South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung is reportedly gearing up for the release of a new software update for its Omnia W smartphones, so as to provide users with support for Wi-Fi tethering capabilities.

Apparently, the feature was expected to be included in the new Windows Phone 7.8 platform upgrade, but the OS arrived on some devices without it, WMPoweruser notes.

However, Samsung is committed to providing the capability to its users, and it has already confirmed that it will deliver it via the aforementioned update for Omnia W.

“We can confirm that the upgrade to version 7.8 for Omnia W is issued directly from Microsoft does not include tethering. Similarly, [we] confirm, however, that we are already working on a Maintenance Release that includes this feature and will be available in the coming weeks,” the company told WindowsPhoneItaly.
