Samsung Phones with FM Radio

Samsung phones with FM radio built-in allow you to listen to local broadcasts across a particular frequency without the use of the internet or the need for Wi-Fi.

Just plug in your antenna; usually, an earphone plugged into your Samsung phone’s 3.5mm headphone jack will do and you are good to go. Some of these phones even have an antenna built-in to them, meaning you don’t even need an earphone or 3.5mm headphone jack which not all Samsung phones have these days.

Most galaxy phones on the A series that come with FM radio are available for use everywhere in the world. Sadly, when it comes to their flagships, only the units sold here in the US and sometimes in Canada can use the FM radio.

Yes, the feature is market dependent, sometimes service provider dependent, and sometimes it is processor dependent; in the sense that only the units that have the snapdragon processor have FM radio. These are mostly the ones sold here in the US and in the Chinese market.

Final Thought

As you can see from the above list, some phones in a particular family don’t have FM radio while others do. I am talking about the likes of the Samsung A52 5G that doesn’t have while the A52 and A52s 5G do.

Similarly, Samsung S20 FE doesn’t have FM radio while the S20, S20 Plus, and S20 Ultra does. Also, the S9 family, Note 8 family, and S10 family have it, but the Note 9 doesn’t.

Most of their phones announced in 2022 so far comes with FM Radio with the exception of the S22 series.

For some years now, Samsung has refused to activate the built-in Radio tuner on their flagships for reasons known to them. Both the S21 and S22 series use a chipset that supports FM Radio but you just can’t get it to work on them.

If you are an FM radio person, above are the Samsung phones that come with and without a built-in antenna.
