KOREAN PHONE MAKER Samsung has confirmed that a software fix for the Galaxy Nexus smartphone volume bug is being rolled out now.
Since its launch nearly two weeks ago the Samsung Galaxy Nexus has suffered from volume drop issues in some cases. The company confirmed the bug last week and said it had a fix, which it is now rolling out to customers.
Samsung said, "We're currently rolling out a fix for the volume issue which will reach everyone in the coming week."
We've had a Galaxy Nexus in the office for a while and didn't have any problems at first. However, we encountered volume problems when the phone was switched to 2G. There is an unofficial fix for the issue that involves putting the phone in bootloader mode.
This has been the only problem so far for what was a big launch in the smartphone market this year. The Galaxy Nexus runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is a rival to Apple's Iphone 4S.
Online retailer Clove said, "We have had confirmation today that the updates for the Galaxy Nexus are about to begin. This will be done in batches over the air." µ
