Galaxy Nexus Getting OTA Update, Fixes Volume Bug


Release bugs are nothing new for smartphones. They usually crop up with new handsets or major revisions to the operating system and they’re usually all fixed with software updates distributed over the air.

This time around it’s the confirmed “volume bug” on the Galaxy Nexus. If you’re unfamiliar with this bug, in a very few cases users are reporting the phone’s volume changing wildly with the on-screen indicator “freaking out” (to use the technical terminology).

Apparently the bug only shows up when these smartphones are connected to a 2G data network on the 900MHz band (primarily users in the UK). Users connected to 3G networks haven’t reported these issues.

The fix? An OTA update that’s reportedly hitting the airwaves today, but like most OTA updates, will be delivered in a staggered manner and may hit users in the UK first.
