    I just saw on gsmarena that the S10 will have fm radio in U.S. and Canada, I hope this is true I know most people don't care but it's one of those little features I had wanted in the galaxy phones for a while

    Now if they can only bring back the IR blaster lol

    The SoC will be capable of FM radio, the carriers allowing it to be active or used is an entirely different story.

    I think most of Qualcomm's high-end SoC's have had the ability but it was disabled by the carriers or never enabled by the manufacturer.

    Apparently it is my carrier I just downloaded nextradio and that's the message I got

    I have an S8+ and from S3 to S8 gsmarena always had no in the radio section

    ok well I'll just have to wait and see if they will unlock it automatically for the S10

    Well I use Next Radio and my Bluetooth Speaker connected to the phone via cable for FM Antenna and I have loved this since way back on my HTC phones. It helps me listen to local stations in real time with no delays when I am trying to win concert tickets. :-)

    One reason could be that most of them have removed the headphone jack. Wired headphones are needed for FM reception.

    At least the Qualcomm chip ones do. Not sure about Exynos.
    My Note 9 FM radio works (I'm on Verizon, fwiw).
