Future Samsung Phones Will Come with FM Radio

Future Samsung Phones Will Come with FM Radio

Samsung will continue to do this with its next round of devices.

Future Samsung phones will have a feature that many iPhone users can no longer access: FM radio.

Further reports reveal that the activation will not require any additional hardware, especially since smartphones are typically made with support for FM chips. All "upcoming smartphone models" of Samsung will unlock FM chips, which will enable its user base to listen to local radio stations.

Having access to local FM radio stations should be a nice addition for Samsung devices because it serves a lot of different situations.

Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma caused some bad destruction.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus will come with an active FM chip in the U.S. and Canada, Samsung has teamed up with NextRadio.

Kyrgios wins Brisbane International
Nick Kyrgios has doused any concerns of injury after claiming his maiden ATP title on home soil and first since 2016. Kyrgios wrapped up the first set in 37 minutes despite having to save five break-points.

"Samsung should be lauded for taking this important step", said Paul Brenner, President of NextRadio powered by TagStation in a statement. But, as of the fall of 2016, less than half of them had been activated. If Samsung's FM hardware is engineered like most smartphones, its devices would need a headphone jack and a pair of wired headphones. Quite a number of consumers have shifted to Bluetooth headphones, but they won't work and would remain dysfunctional unless Samsung starts enabling the essential internal FM antenna.

The beloved FM radio is getting a mobile revival with news that Samsung is teaming up with NextRadio to unlock the FM chips in new Samsung devices in the United States and Canada. Adding to the confusion, an extensive list of "supported devices" on NextRadio app's official website includes a whole bunch of unlocked and United States carrier-specific Galaxies.
