So much wrongness in one sentence!
“Samsung Pay, which uses technology developed by its LoopPlay, has a feature neither of its main rivals can boast, as it can act as a passive magnetic reader. This means it can act as an Oyster card without being woken up”
LoopPay, not LoopPlay.
MST *sends* data to a mag stripe reader. Rather than being a passive reader, it's the complete opposite.
Oyster does not use mag stripe at all - it's Mifare/DESFire-based. In fact, none of the *Pays can emulate Oyster.
MST requires the phone to be woken, and Samsung Pay activated, since it's then actively broadcasting card data to whoever's listening.
