LG today said it will ensure that all its future smartphones ship with active FM radios. Sometimes LG and/or its carrier partners leave FM radios, included in nearly all phones, inert. That will change, particularly for handsets headed to the U.S., Canada, and Latin America. FM radio makes it possible for hundreds of millions of people to find and listen to local broadcasts for free. Moreover, LG has signed an agreement with NextRadio, which will be preloaded on a significant number of LG handsets moving forward. NextRadio allows people to listen to local radio stations via their phone's FM radio, in addition to stations from all over the country through their phone's data connection. NextRadio says gaining access to the FM radio on LG's phones will translate to huge power and data savings for end users. NextRadio can access FM signals even when cellular data networks are not available. Neither LG nor NextRadio said which phones might be the first to benefit from this partnership.
