Does my phone have a FM Receiver Chip in it?
I have a S20FE and checking out the specs online, it looks like it may have a built in FM IC and is capable of receiving local radio signals when using headphones as the antenna. However, it’s apparently just locked in certain countries. Like my phone has the hardware in it, but not the software capable to run it.
I’ve spent plenty of time looking online for various things I could do to activate this like downloading an apk to install the missing software but nothing seems to be working. I’m starting to wonder if maybe the phone doesn’t have the chip in it (I purchased the phone in New Zealand) or if it’s just really difficult to activate it.
I don’t really want to take open my phone to have a look either as it would break the IP68 water/dust protection and I don’t have any replacement seals, so if anyone who has seen the insides of a New Zealand model S20FE knows if there is a radio chip, I’d love to know please.
