Google has acknowledged that Samsung's Galaxy Nexus smartphones, which use the newest version of Android OS, can spontaneously drop volume in the U.K.
"We are aware of the volume issue and have developed a fix," Google said today in a statement. "We will update devices as soon as possible."
The bug causes volume on smartphones with Android 4.0--aka Ice Cream Sandwich--to drop spontaneously. It initially appears that the issue is caused by the 900MHz 2G frequency, which is used by U.K. carriers O2 and Vodafone. Evidence suggests that Nexus owners on Orange, T-Mobile, or Three won't be affected, as these networks use a different frequency.
The Galaxy Nexus launched in Europe last week. No U.S. launch date has been released yet.
