The latest update shifts the build numbers of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus to version G960FXXU5CSF2 and G965FXXU5CSF2 respectively and weighs in at 574MB. The update adds a new Night Mode inside the camera app of the two phones, which will work similarly to that on the Galaxy S10 series phones.
One of the Galaxy S9 units went from 10 percent to 5 percent in the course of a few seconds. While the battery life of the phone on Android Pie was reported to get generally better than on Android Oreo, the device is now randomly experiencing battery drainage ever since the update.
It's believed that the inability to use Bixby is wholly because Bixby 2.0 hasn’t been smoothened enough and it’s got nothing to do with the latest version of Android. The commands which fail on the Galaxy S9 running Android Pie also fail on the Oreo-based Note 9 unit.
