Earlier today we told you about the Galaxy Nexus that will be getting Flash support before the end of the year via an update. The handset has been experiencing a bigger problem though that has been affecting early adopters of the handset. There has been issue surrounding the volume on the device that can make the smartphone useless for making calls. Google have promised to release an update at some point, but some resellers of the handset reported shipments being frozen. Now we can tell you that some UK retailers are reporting fixed Galaxy Nexus stock, but there is still no news on an update yet.
TechRadar are reporting in an article that online retailer Clove are claiming to have received new stock of the handset, which has the volume bug fixed. The new stock has been given a software update to remedy the problem, which only seemed to surface while using a 2G network.
Then a second retailer Expansys released a statement that was claiming it would also be receiving fresh stock on November 30th. It added “The new stock has had a Google approved firmware update applied to it by Samsung’s distributors in order to fix the bug with volume control that affected some original stock.”
Unfortunately there is still no word from either Google or Samsung when owners who already have the Galaxy Nexus will be receiving the software update. Hopefully now the issue seems to be resolved we may also get news when consumers in the US can expect to get hold of the handset.
Are you thinking of getting the Samsung Galaxy Nexus?
