Samsung GALAXY Nexus volume issues are software related, fix coming soon
Over the past several days, a number of Samsung GALAXY Nexus owners have been complaining about a strange issue related with the volume level of their smartphone. Dubbed SAV-Ghost, the glitch causes the volume level of the device to drop unexpectedly, all the way down to mute on some occasions, after which the phone would sometimes even become unresponsive for a couple of seconds.
Fortunately, we now have a confirmation that the bug is entirely software related and that a fix is on its way. Word comes from Google itself, which made several medias aware that a solution has already been developed.
We are aware of the volume issue and have developed a fix. We will update devices as soon as possible.
However, no release time frame has been given regarding the software fix, but knowing that Google will release the patch in a timely manner is always a good thing. It is also good to know that the glitch has nothing to do with the hardware of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus, as it would have probably made us wait for the smartphone's U.S. launch even longer.
