    620 will not get FM radio in future updates,because it lacks the FM radio chip?

    But why? Don't 620 use the same chipset as several other Lumia? And take a good look at the pic on the link below. Isn't that lime green phone on the right 620?

    WMPowerUser was talking about how it might have something to do with the headphone jack being part of the removable shell and how that affects the ability to use the headphones as an antenna. I don't know if this has any truth but...

    I still didn't got the point! it has every thing to work as FM receiver but still not getting the update,If back cover is the issue let them put a notification that "put back cover and plug headphones to turn on FM", FM is very basic feature 1000rs phone has it then why not 14,500rs phone?

    As much as Nokia would probably hate to admit it, some shells do have grounding issues that negatively impact touch screen performance.
    There's even a thread about it.

    Well, 620 does have FM radio chip! 520 and 720 has the exactly same SoC and they both getting the radio update!

    I don't think the headphone jack being part of removable shell as a strong enough reason to leave 620 out! Nokia should give further explanations about this :/
