The Samsung Galaxy Nexus’s irksome volume problems aren’t long for this world, Google has pledged, with a fix due to be pushed out next week.

Intermittent issues with the handset came to light within days of its launch. These caused the ringer to mute automatically at random intervals, prompting a welter of missed calls and alarms.

The good news is that, as online rumblings had indicated, Samsung and Google have taken decisive action and have pledged that a fix will reach Galaxy Nexus owners in Blighty next week.

Google stated: "We're currently rolling out a fix for the volume issue which will reach everyone in the coming week.”

The Galaxy Nexus’s troubled entry into the world of tech makes it the second high-profile handset to launch with software problems.

Nokia’s make-or-break Lumia 800 Windows smartphone is also beset with glitches, which cause the battery to run down quickly.

The Finns are set to address the issue with two software updates due to be made available for download next month.
