What phone is most like the new Samsung phones

I have a Samsung Galaxy S8. Good phone. I always liked it.
But Samsung recently sent out an update and released the newest version of the Bixby virus on my phone. Seems you can no longer shut it down, shut it up, or disable it. Has ruined my S8.
So looking to get a new phone. Pretty much exactly like the S8 or an S9 but without the Bixby virus Samsung installs.
I've used Samsung for years and years. So I am unfamiliar with other phones. Hoping a few knowledgeable folks on here could point me in the right direction.

If it's Samsung's OS that bugs you.

Samsung S10 is the one

You should go with the Samsung S10 or S10 Plus which is one of the best flagship smartphones as of now but Samsung doesn't provide any feature in its devices to customize Bixby but you will have to tweak it after getting the another Samsung device(no idea about the new UI and update). So go with Samsung's S10 or S10 Plus.
