SAMSUNG PS5 SOURCE ICON

Hi - why doesn't the Samsung Q90T recognise the Playstation 5 (PS5) and provide it with a custom source icon.  My Q90T recognises every other console (XBOX Series X, XBOX One S, Nintendo Switch etc) and they all have nice custom icons - but the Ps5 just has the crappy generic controller symbol! - to be honest it's a bit annoying..  it clearly 'can' be done.. so why hasn't it??

Tell Sony, it's their trademark, Samsung can't use it unless Sony allows it so it is up to them to sort out.

I manually name it as ‘PS5’ but after I exit this source, it just shows ‘…’ (3 dots next to a game pad icon) in the selection bar.  
Try to delete it and set it up again with the name ‘PS5’ but again this is replaced to ‘…’ whenever I switch inputs. 
(My TV is a 55MU8000)

Any idea who to address at Samsung?

Forgot to mention that in my case, Nintendo switch also is not recognized, thus no custom source icon displayed. 
Switch was launched early 2017 and definitely prior to my tv launch. 
Anyway, this is no reason to buy a new tv as Samsung will definitely abandon it as soon it leaves their factory.
