Yes.  At least my S9 Plus in the USA does.   Headphones are required because they serve as the antenna.  I use the NextRadio app as the "tuner".

The unlocjed version from samsung.com does not have it unlocked yet. Im bummed about it, I was looking forward to using my fm radio.

It actually does but there is apparently a bug disabling it that NextRadio knows of and is working with Samsung to fix

I discovered the same thing with my unlocked S9 I ordered from Samsung.com When using the nextradio app it has to use data from wifi or cell signal.

Has anybody got any word on when this update will be? Its April 18th and we still havent had OTA for April sercurity patches and its driving me nuts not having my fm tuner. Plus I can not find an answer to when we should be getting an update. I know there are quite a few bugs still to work out on the S9 and I would think that Samsung would be pumping out updates to correct issues with its newest Flagship.
