Samsung Smartphones To Get Enabled FM Chips In The US

Future Samsung devices will come with an unlocked FM radio chip Samsung set to finally unlock FM chip in upcoming devices in US, Canada

The company has stated that users will be able to access local FM radio through apps such as NextRadio. Now, however, NextRadio has confirmed that Samsung will be the latest manufacturer to unlock the chip in its upcoming smartphones, in partnership with them.

Some smartphone users with an affinity for old-school technology may appreciate having access to FM radio, but TagStation president Paul Brenner also said in a press release that having access to FM radio frequencies could benefit people in emergency situations.

LG, MOTOROLA, and ALCATEL have previously agreed to unlock the chips in their phones. Given that the hardware for most phones is usually ready to receive FM radio signals, another big reason is that listening to radio via the FM chip uses less battery and data than streaming radio apps. TagStation, LLC has developed the TagStationĀ® service to provide radio stations with artist and title information and unique interactivity with listeners.

Also, Samsung may bring 512GB storage chip to next-gen smartphones.

The companies hope that "when cellular coverage is congested or unavailable, the FM Chip will provide life-saving information from local radio stations", echoing concerns that FCC Chairman Pai voiced earlier in 2017.

Many smartphones in the world are manufactured with hardware capable of receiving free FM radio signals. The company will start mass production of the world's first 512GB embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS), implying that the next-gen smartphones will be able to offer double the storage, of what it could a year ago. Apple has declined to do so, saying that iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 models do not have FM radio chips.
