    I found a spec sheet which suggests that it does not have an FM radio:

    Samsung Galaxy S8 Specs & Speed

    If this is true, then it's sort of unfortunate. I actually use my FM radio a lot at work so I can listen to NPR without having to download a dedicated app. I guess Samsung must be phasing this out. I remember that the Note 7 I briefly owned also did not have an FM receiver. Oh well.

    The demos units at least do not have the function at BB or Verizon. I downloaded Free FM and others to see. The apps stated no radio function detected.

    The 835 is the most radical design change since the 800 series was introduced, so perhaps not in the SOC.

    The phone has the radio in it but most carriers disable it because they can't make any money if you don't use data. My AT&T S7 Edge has it installed and it works as long as I run G935A firmware. If I put G935U software on it, no FM radio. Seems weird that AT&T allowed it but Samsung didn't!

    The 835 is not the same chip design as the 820/821, so not a guarantee.

    T-Mobile S8+ here and I finally tested Nextradio on the S8 (it was working great on the S7 edge) and yes, it seems to have FM radio as it asks you to connect your earphones to act as the radio antenna.

    Despite my earlier comments, it would appear that yes, the T-mobile S8+ has an FM tuner. I've used it multiple times now.
