American software giant Microsoft Corp has reportedly confirmed to release the software patch to fix the Lumia 535 touch-screen sensitivity bug.

Soon after the release of the Lumia 535 in select regions last month, some Lumia device owners reported that smartphone's touch-screen sensitivity was a bit in disarray. Finger-touch inputs were not properly received by the phone, which left leaving many users frustrated.

Later, a Vietnamese technology blog, Winphone Viet, posted the 1:37-second clip on YouTube, detailing the problem seen in the Lumia 535.

Taking stock of the situation, Microsoft confirmed to release the update, but never detailed the time-frame of the actual roll-out date.

Now, it has been learnt that the company will soon release stability update via OTA (Over-The-Air) on 27 December to the Dual-SIM Lumia 535 starting in Vietnam, reported Tech RUM. [Via WM Power User]

As of now there is no word on when the new firmware be released in other markets, but going by past history, we can expect the software patch to reach other regions including India, probably in a by December-end or early January.

Until the new update arrives, as a temporary solution, Lumia 535 users can switch-off the screen magnifier.

Just go settings options >> Ease of Access >> turn-off Screen magnifier.
