Is FM radio enabled in Sony Xperia XZ Premium?

Any information regarding FM radio chip enabled or disabled in Sony Xperia XZ premium. If it is not, that's a deal breaker...

Correction, the physical radio receiver is there, however Sorry decided to block it on a software level for unknown reason. The low/medium range devices has the radio software enabled, not providing it for high end devices is a huge mistake of Sony mobile.

Re: Is FM radio enabled in Sony Xperia XZ Premium?

I love the FM radio feature. I'm really hoping Sony will listen to customers. The fm radio is a must for me as I listen to the live footy coverage when I'm at games. Seems silly to take my phone and also a portable fm radio.

 

 

Can this be added in a software update down the track???

have you guys trying some FM apps from the store? perhaps the capability is there, but the app isn't preloaded. unfortunately I can't think of any app that actually uses FM, not internet connection, except for Spirit FM which is paid.

I tried NextRadio and it doesn't look like FM Radio is enabled.

No FM radio on Xperia XZ Premium

Why there is no FM Radio on my Sony Xperia XZ Premium? I just purchased this device 15 days back, for upgrading from my earlier Xperia Z1 Compact, which had FM Radio.
I feel bad.
I WANT IT AND TELL ME HOW I WILL GET IT.
