Are there any solutions to the Google Nexus 4 weird sound problem? This is how it sounds.

Will Google replace the phone?

I am in Singapore and bought this phone through a friend in the US.

There is no proper support information for this phone from Google / LG. I tried calling '855-83-NEXUS' but they are closed for the day. I will try calling them tomorrow.

Answer from in comments (to make it clear for other users)

Found out solution to this problem. In fact, this is not a problem at all. NFC device in the nexus phones is the source for this sound. When placed near a RFID / smartcard, it actually tries to read it aloud. Galaxy Nexus NFC Weirdness
