According to information from Sammobile, Samsung is planning to replace the old S Voice in the Galaxy S8 with a much more intelligent assistant, they acquired from Viv Labs, which Samsung took over not too long ago. The assistant, that Samsung named Bixby, will offer similar services like Siri on Apple's iPhones and the Google Assistant on the Pixel Phones and Google Home. Apparently, Samsung has plans to integrate Bixby system-wide in all native Samsung apps that ship with the Galaxy S8. 

Since Bixy offers better intelligence, it will also offer a better user experience, for instance by allowing to search through your images filtered by certain criteria. However, we recently heard, that Google may not allow Samsung to implement Bixby at all due to legal issues, so we will have to wait and see how Google will react to Bixby on a major Pixel phone competitor. We also learned, that Samsung is updating all its native apps with a new and consistent design in time for the Galaxy S8 launch, which may be delayed until April of next year, according to the latest information available.
