Snapdragon have fm receiver but need to plug in earpiece. It acts as antenna. Its a requirement in US and some countries in EU to have fm radio on mobile to use during emergency. As during national level emergency, the country will broadcast emergency messages through fm radio.

Thats why you see US and some EU countries only have snapdragon models of samsung phones.
The level of my sarcasm is not detected. But yeah thanks for sharing with the others!

Yup only SD chips has FM radio chips Exynos does not. So to keep things on leveled ground. Radio chips are also disabled on SD for S9 with an exception of one app able to access it.
