Google Nexus 4 owners report strange buzzing sound from earpiece.

India, Nov. 26 -- Some users of the Nexus 4 have reported 'a faint buzz' coming from around the earpiece of the smartphone. A small but growing number of Nexus users are reporting this problem on their device.

The exact reason of the emission of this noise on the LG Nexus 4 isn't known, and it seems that problem may require more than a simple software update to fix.

The official forum: Issue 39936: Nexus 4 constant buzzing in earpiece, elaborates on the problem that users are facing. Some users say that the noise is apparent whether the screen is on or off. Other users on the forum suggest that it's either poor shielding or a service constantly running. The Nexus 4 emits the noise even when it is shifted to Airplane mode.

The noise can only be heard when you press the device to your ear, so it is not like the device is making a constant disturbing sound. The only downside to consumers is that the smartphone may consume more battery is the earpiece isn't shutting down between calls.

The Nexus 4 runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, has 2GB of RAM, 1.5GHz quad-core processor, an 8MP rear snapper, and a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 1280x768 pixel. The front and back of the device are encased in Gorilla Glass. In the US, the 8GB variant is priced at $299 (Rs. 16,500 approx.) where as the 16GB variant is priced at $349 (Rs. 19,000 approx.).
