Samsung to roll out display color and Wi-Fi patches for the Galaxy S8 and S8+

Samsung has confirmed to the Wall Street Journal on Monday that it will be rolling out two software updates for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ this week. One will be giving users "a further enhanced ability to adjust the color setting to their preference," or, in other words, deal with the slight red tint that some units are exhibiting if it bothers them. 

The other will address some patchy Wi-Fi reception issues that apparently can benefit from a software enhancement. We'll let you know when they hit, and to what extent these particular problems have been addressed by Samsung's expected software updates to your brand new Galaxy S8.
