Future Samsung Phones Will Come with FM Radio

  • Future Samsung devices will come with an unlocked FM radio chip

"SAMSUNG should be lauded for taking this important step", said TAGSTATION Pres. PAUL BRENNER. Meanwhile, emergency information came via FM radio signals - which, in many cases, the victims couldn't access, because their chips were locked.

The Korean firm has made a deal with the NextRadio app to activate the FM radio chip within the forthcoming Galaxy S9 handset. We're still hoping smartphone manufacturers like Apple, HTC, Motorola and Xiaomi will ultimately realize they're making a mistake leaving the archaic but useful headphone jack behind, while Samsung is now officially joining an FM radio-reviving movement. TagStation, LLC has developed the TagStationĀ® service to provide radio stations with artist and title information and unique interactivity with listeners.

Cupertino in particular came in for criticism for the lack of an FM radio in iPhone models, following a spate of natural disasters in the USA past year. The capability will allow users to connect directly to the NextRadio app and listen to their favorite tracks, while simultaneously saving battery life as well as data.

Operating conditions for manufacturing best in 5 years during December: Nikkei PMI
Spain's manufacturing activity growth moderated from a near 11-year high in December, survey data from IHS Markit showed Tuesday. Members of the survey team said late delivery was mainly due to the shortage of raw materials.


At the time, Apple claimed their newer phones didn't contain these chips to begin with and thus could not activate them upon request.

Having access to local FM radio stations should be a nice addition for Samsung devices because it serves a lot of different situations. It is simply a matter of smartphone manufacturers enabling the chip for that functionality.

The FCC previously asked Apple to unlock the radio chip in their smartphones, although Apple revealed that iPhones from the iPhone 7 onward do not actually have the hardware installed.
