I'm shocked people aren't getting this It's an advertisement that'll be broadcast over cable. Has nothing to do with affecting Samsung TVs only, or just smart TVs.
It's still an evil ad, but nothing quite like what Eternal Darkness for the Gamecube did .....
Looks like they removed the option to do so in iOS 11 (there was a dialer code you could enter before to replace the signal dots with the dBm value).
At least with Android we can use apps like LTE Discovery if we need detailed info on signal levels and such.
That said, I seem to remember similar rumors about XBox (especially when the 360 was out). It was generally a money-losing segment at the time, so why would they bother sinking money into it.
Bottom line: Analysts know nothing.
