Samsung could have a fix ready for the irksome Samsung Galaxy Nexus bug as early as next week, reports suggest.
An unspecified glitch with the handset, which emerged a matter of days after launching last week, causes its volume to mute seemingly randomly – resulting in a glut of missed calls and wake-up alarm snafus.
Samsung has since acknowledged the problem and promised it was working up something to tackle it. A due date for when it might actually arrive was anyone’s guess, though.
Until now, that is. According to a report from Slash Gear citing a testimony from a customer who has pre-ordered the phone, Samsung has informed Irish resellers that they can expect delivery of Galaxy Nexus handsets that are unaffected by the volume glitch next week.
That suggests that the fix we've been promised is good to go and will be pushed out to handset owners over the weekend or early next week.
The Galaxy Nexus pre-order customer told the site: “The latest update is that Samsung is bringing new stock into Ireland and that it won’t be in until next week.
“It’s looking like they want to release stock that doesn’t have the fault.”
News of Sammy’s efforts to address the issue come amid a glut of glitches affecting phone makers’ flagship kits, with both the iPhone 4S and Nokia’s brand spanking new Lumia 800 hamstrung by battery-life bugs.
