Galaxy S8 vs Nokia 9
You can rightly compare the specs here as global Galaxy S8 versions will feature 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. Nokia 9, if the report is true, will have an edge with an extended 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. The major element we got here is the camera. Nokia 9 is rumored to feature the old Zeiss partnership.
Along with everything from Nokia’s phone business, Zeiss partnership was also effected and moved to Microsoft. Now when Microsoft has no plans to build any Lumia smartphones which might also kill the Zeiss partnership, Nokia is supposed to bring the lovely photography partnership back to its business. None of this is confirmed yet but Nokia 9 is rumored to carry Carl Zeiss optics with 22 megapixels camera on the back. There’s also a 12 megapixel camera on the front.
Nokia OZO Audio
Additionally if you knew about OZO Audio — Nokia’s spatial audio technology with three-dimensional audio capture and playback capability, it might make the Nokia 9 first smartphone to carry it. Checkout the demo below to know the audio performance.

We have seen Nokia 6 to be cost around $250 globally around with other cheaper models. You can expect a competitive price for a high-end Nokia Android flagship as well. For now you must take it with a grain of salt.
