Google promises fix for Galaxy Nexus volume issue

 

Some of you may have heard about a strange issue with the volume rocker on the Galaxy Nexus where it was found to randomly mute and/or stop responding to touch (Video below). The bug picked up quite a bit of attention over on XDA forums where deeper digging found it related 2G signals from European carriers. More than 120 people have commented on the Android bug tracking sitewith various users sharing ideas and experiences about the issue. According to Android Police, Google has responded to the problem and have identified it as being software related and not the hardware of the Samsung phone.

We are aware of the volume issue and have developed a fix. We will update devices as soon as possible. – Google response

No word on how soon the update will roll out but we’re hoping it is before we see it in the United States.

Thanks Liam!
