Just months after the FCC badgered Apple to do it;Samsung has finally chose to unlock the FM chip on its upcoming smartphone models. The same company has now teamed up with Samsung which means that the Korean giant's upcoming smartphones in the USA will have their FM chip enabled.
The world's largest Android smartphone maker has agreed to unlock the FM chip in upcoming handsets sold in the United States and Canada, according to NextRadio, maker of an FM radio app. Samsung itself did not immediately respond to PCMag's request for comment about NextRadio's announcement. 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. Meanwhile, emergency information came via FM radio signals - which, in many cases, the victims couldn't access, because their chips were locked.
There are no hardware changes, as FM receivers are already present in most smartphones - it's just not all smartphone makers activate them. By activating the FM chip, users will be able to stay up to date by easily disseminating information over the radio. It is simply a matter of smartphone manufacturers enabling the chip for that functionality.
