The Nokia 6 was just officially introduced by HMD Global, while the Samsung Galaxy S8’s unveiling moment is still unclear, but probably 2 months from now if the leaks are true.
Regarding about the Samsung Galaxy S8, there are tons of rumors and leaks about what its possible specs could be and would take probably 2,000 words to describe them all and will just add more confusion.
The Nokia 6’s retail price is $246 and will be released early this year. As for the Galaxy S8, its reported retail price is kind of confusing. For starters, it was initially expected to be around $810-850. Its release date is rumored to be on April 18.
The Galaxy S8 on the other hand, its design is said to feature no 3.5 mm headphone jack, software-based home button, curved edges, almost bezel-less, and a 90 percent screen-to-body ratio.
The Nokia 6 features a 5.5-inch screen with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080. It is also protected with a 2.5D Gorilla Glass. Now, there is no solid information yet about its screen type is, but based on the video, it’s probably an LCD screen.
As for the Samsung Galaxy S8, this is going to be a little bit long and confusing, but I will try to shorten it. Samsung will have two screen size variants: a 5.1-inch and a 5.5-inch which is codenamed as “Dream” and “Dream 2.” However, there are also other reports claiming that it is a 5.7-inch and a 6.7-inch screen variant.
And for its screen resolution, you must have heard talks about a Samsung smartphone 4k display. Well, only the larger models will have it, respectively the 5.5-inch and 6.7-inch screen variants.
The Nokia 6 runs on Android Nougat and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chip. The Samsung Galaxy S8 on the other hand, it will run on the latest Android Nougat or something probably higher which some reports are claiming. For its chip, it will be sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip or an Exynos 8895.
The Nokia 6 features 64 GB with 4 GB of RAM. It also has an expandability option via a microSD card. The Galaxy S8 on the other hand, the most well-known rumor about its internal memory is that it features 8 GB of RAM.
For the Nokia 6, it features a 16 MP rear camera and a 8 MP front-facing camera. While the Samsung Galaxy S8 is said to feature a dual 12 MP rear camera and a 8 MP front camera. Now, there are also reports claiming that the Galaxy S8 will feature a 30 MP rear camera.
However, it is unclear if it is dual or not or the combined number of the MP lenses of its rear camera, or a 12MP + 13MP rear camera. It’s anybody’s guess for now.
Now, the battery is a sensitive topic for Samsung smartphones, so I will say that this is only based on rumors. But first, for the Nokia 6, it houses a 3000 mAh battery. The Galaxy S8 is said to feature a 4200 mAh battery.
