Samsung To Unlock FM Chips and Partners With NextRadio

12 January 2018, 06:13 | Brandon Parsons

Samsung set to finally unlock FM chip in upcoming devices in US, Canada

Future Samsung devices will come with an unlocked FM radio chip

NextRadio, an FM radio app, has announced a new partnership with Samsung that will see the company's future smartphones including an activated FM radio chip for receiving free FM signals.

"Samsung should be lauded for taking this important step", NextRadio President Paul Brenner said in a statement. "They are providing their customers a more engaging, immersive radio experience and, as importantly, a means to connect with life-saving information in emergencies". But local radio stations could still be able to function, and your phone's FM chip doesn't need an LTE signal.

An FM radio chip is available in most phones, but it's typically.

TagStation, LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Emmis Communications Corporation. The app also works on devices without an active FM chip by streaming local FM stations over the internet, which uses more battery and data.

Rents boost USA core CPI; retail sales rise solidly
The pullback in energy prices came as gasoline prices tumbled by 2.7% in December following a 7.3% jump in the previous month. Prices for US Treasuries fell, with the yield on the interest-rate sensitive two-year note rising to the highest since 2008.


Most smartphones ship with FM chips, but they are usually not enabled for various reasons.

One would not find FM chips in older devices, possibly because these devices have already passed the FCC, and therefore activating a new radio would require another FCC certification for them. 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 past year.

It's easy to forget that inside smartphones - modern marvels that they are - there's a radio, hidden behind all those high-tech bells and whistles. Meanwhile, Apple has confirmed that iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 models do not have the FM chip and as such, does not have the capability but did say that the other models were equipped with safety features.
