It became known that in the new version of the Android operating system will be implemented the ability to turn off the signal indication of the network by the mobile operator. The reasons that prompted the developers to take this step are not exactly clear at the moment. Perhaps, a corresponding request from telecom operators was received.
If this change in the operating system takes effect, the mobile operator will be able to block the display of the signal strength when the SIM card is inserted into the phone. Moreover, this innovation will not block the indication of the signal level by other applications, so when using programs such as Signal Strength, the network level will be displayed.
