Bug: Audio is recorded in mono when "Hey Google" is enabled.

This has been reported for other Nokia phones too (see here for example) so it seems this is a problem Nokia have at large.

This has been reported for other Nokia phones too (see here for example) so it seems this is a problem Nokia have at large. It's also a problem with the Nokia 5.3.

If the "Hey Google" hotword is turned on in the Google app, then audio recorded with video in the camera will only be mono, from the bottom microphone. If "Hey Google" is turned off, then audio is recorded in stereo, and sounds much better quality. Here are some examples:

"Hey Google" enabled:

"Hey Google" disabled:

I hope Nokia will fix this bug in the next update. While this is not a major issue to me, as I am more likely to use the dedicated Assistant button anyway (and I'm pleased that Nokia included this feature on a budget device!) it's still a bug and should be resolved.
