It would appear that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus volume bug that we have been hearing so much about over the past couple of days does in fact have to do with the software on the first Android 4.0 device and both Google and Samsung have confirmed that they are working on a fix and that they will be rolling out an update to Galaxy Nexus owners as soon as they possibly can.
If you recall, there was much debate as to whether this was a software bug or if it had something to do with the Galaxy Nexus hardware. So, it’s good to hear that it has nothing to do with the hardware and can be fixed with a simple OTA.
Of course, we won’t know for sure until the update rolls out.
Here is what Samsung told Android Central:
We are aware of the volume issue and have developed a fix. We will update devices as soon as possible.
Short and sweet. Google also issued the exact same statement this morning.
So, if you’re in the UK and have been experiencing this bug, be on the look out for an update in the near future.
