Google has issued a new statement confirming that the promised fix for the Galaxy Nexus' volume drop bug will be rolled-out to consumers "in the coming week."
In a brief statement released Wednesday, while not giving an exact date, a Google representative did confirm that it would be releasing the fix to jilted Galaxy Nexus soon rather than later. "We're currently rolling out a fix for the volume issue which will reach everyone in the coming week," said the Google spokesman.
The Galaxy Nexus' volume bug was first reported by jilted consumers and critics across Europe almost immediately after the device's launch. Though the official number of devices affected remains unclear, tech sites such as CNET UK reported receiving complaints about the device and reports of the problem have continued to appear on numerous tech forums.
The comments generally reported that at intermittent points the phone suddenly goes silent, meaning users don't get notifications for texts, calls or email. Certain users have also reported the bug occurring mid-phone call, claiming that the device cuts out, meaning that while the phone call is still active they can no longer hear the person on the other end of the line.
Though Google is yet to confirm the exact cause of the bug, speculation has generally suggested the problem only occurs on devices using the 900MHz spectrum for 2G coverage -- which is a problem considering nearly all the devices sold in the UK run on this frequency.
