Only Qualcomm chip will have fm radio exynos no have

If you can't wait then get whichever phone you want, don't say I never share this

I tried using spen on s8 before, confirm cannot use. If not wrong, the screen technology is slightly different. That's why spen can write even under water

So conclusion is, spen can only work for note. I heard older spen can't work with the newer note as well

Is it just me or the phone looks much taller? I prefer a circular design for the finger print reader.

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.
