Samsung has recently released an Android Pie update for the Galaxy S9 and S9+, while the update has been rolling quietly in the past days, a new dreadful battery issue seems to be rising for some users. Battery issues aren’t something new for Samsung, that as experienced the same behavior in the Gear S3 smartwatch, now seems that this problem has crossed the line into the company’s smartphones.
According to SamMobile, users are reporting that after updating their smartphones to Android 9.0 Pie, the battery of the handsets was noticed to sudden fall from 10% to 5% in just a few seconds. No matter how a specific application can eat a slice of the battery, draining such a big amount of energy in just a few seconds is too normal to be ignored.
Samsung’s final Android 9.0 Pie update is expected to come for both the S9 and S9+ in January, we can’t say if this particular issue is an isolated case or if it’s something that is spreading among users. Over the course of Samsung’s Beta Program users had reported that the battery life of phones updated to Pie has remained positive. We just hope that Samsung manages to fix all the possible issues until the final release, after all, if its a problem in the software, it could delay even more the release for other devices such as the Galaxy Note9 that are believed to receive the update on January 15.
