Google has yet to comment on the bug beyond letting people its investigating and to stay tuned. This issue doesn’t appear to be device-specific. While Pixel owners have been the most vocal about it, owners of the Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, and those with OnePlus devices have also reported the issue.
Not being able to use your phone because all of the battery is being eaten up in the background is frustrating, to say the least. Hopefully, this one doesn’t stick around too long. Google should be pushing out the December security patch soon, which will hopefully contain a fix.
