According to News, Samsung has made its alliance with NextRadio for addition of new feature of radio in the upcoming models. The company will unlock the FM chips for the users in USA and Canada for the time being. Usually the smart phones are made up with the FM chips but the hardware makes don’t bother to unlock them.
From the overview, it might seems that the Radio is outdated function but it has its own users and unlike other services, it is free of cost and takes less resources including the battery.
However Samsung is not the only company to make alliance with the NextRadio, before Samsung, LG, Sprint and Apple have did it in the past.
