Popping sound coming from speaker when opening the keyboard?

Alright, so I found another issue/bug with my Lumia 920: Whenever I open an app and pull up the keyboard, there will be a faint popping sound that comes from the external speaker. I've noticed it when in quiet environments, and once I did notice it, it annoys me everytime I pull up the keyboard for usage. Anyone with a Lumia 920 have this problem? I'm wondering if there's something wrong with the speaker or internals of the phone.


UPDATE: So, after doing multiple tests I've confirmed that the popping sound ONLY happens when the phone is set to volume + vibrate. If you have the phone just in vibration mode, regardless of the volume level, you won't hear the popping sound unless you press the play button to hear musc. When you have volume + vibrate on it doesn't matter what level you set the volume to, it'll still make the popping noise.

I've pulled up the keyboard in various uses and have not heard any noise at all with my 920.
