    Just did my weekly restart and noticed a flashing pen icon next to my signal bar top right of phone. First time I noticed this. Any idea what it is? It was only flashing for a few seconds and stopped. S Pen is fully charged I actually haven't even used it in a while.

    I've only noticed my phone doing that once and it never did it again. It was on restart also.

    I'm not sure if it's happened to me and I turn the phone off each night, and on again each morning, but I tend to ignore the phone whilst it's going through it's set up - I'm wondering if the pen symbol shows because it's going through a self check. Did you remove it at some point prior to turning the phone off?

    That is, remove the phone and use it, or just check it out.

    I haven't removed it in over a week. It's been fully charged.

    The S Pen connects to the note 9 via bluetooth low energy(LE) (that's why when u turn off bluetooth you can still use the s pen fully), whenever you restart your phone the s pen has to reconnect to the phone via bluetooth LE
