It will take a couple of charge cycles to achieve full capacity and as it's new it will also be indexing all your files in the background.
It will improve in a few days time.

It will improve, but not by much,
The exynos S9 started life very well, but I'm actually shocked how bad I've found the battery on the plus version.
A 3,500mah battery should be able to get more than 3hr screen time, well I say 3,500... mine doesn't take more than 3150mah now.
