India: Mandatory FM radio in mobile phones is causing confusion

Indian press channels have been chatting for a few days about an ‘advice’ from the Indian government urging mobile phone manufacturers to always activate the FM radio function. For devices without FM function, it is recommended to include it. The news is also widely picked up outside India, because – just like that – big manufacturers like Apple and Samsung are at risk of getting into trouble. After all, more expensive smartphones have not had an FM chip for several years, and often they don’t even have a 3.5-mm audio jack, which previously served as an FM antenna. However, many of these articles are wrong. After all, the Indian government’s circular explicitly refers to “mobile phones”, not “smartphones”. The distinction is important in India, because so-called cheap phones (phones without features, dumb phones, …) are still very popular there.
