This news is probably welcomed by those who have used Bixby in Galaxy
Note 8 and Galaxy S8 line. While Samsung has admitted that first-gen
Bixby needs some improvements and even done a few updates in Samsung

Alexa, which is still a market leader. Integrating Bixby into other
services and apps, however, might be a big leap forward.

Bixby 2.0 with Galaxy Note 9 and integrate it in Galaxy S9 and S9+ in its
software update later. It is a move company ideally makes to keep its 2 flagship
models updated, and will probably continue in year 2018.
