US Unlocked Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will get FM Radio

You can grab a Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9+ pretty much anywhere right now. The ninth installment is one of the hottest smartphones available. But one thing that’s sure to make the flagships even better is support for FM Radio.

FM Radio is foreign territory for Samsung, but the conglomerate managed to include the technology in its latest Galaxy S9 devices. The only problem is, not all Galaxy S9 phones have been enabled with the function.

Some Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ owners have not been able to use the FM Radio functionality built-in, but will soon if sources are correct. We’re talking about the US models of Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ that are unlocked.

According to a source who received word from Samsung, the company forgot to include a certain API on the unlocked versions of its flagship smartphones. Most carrier versions already have support for FM Radio because they have the needed API. The good news is, Samsung is aware of the missing feature on its US unlocked models and is preparing an update that will enable support for the radio.

As of right now, there’s no known ETA for when this update will arrive. If you know Samsung well, then you know the update is probably more than a few days out. However, this update once it comes should be minor in size. We’ll keep you posted over on Droid Updates Weekly so be sure to head on over there.
