Nokia Android phones sold globally do not come with a Gallery app. The Google Photos app is what serves as the default app to access photos on Nokia devices. Variants of Nokia phones sold in China, however, do feature a Gallery app since Google services (including Google Photos) are not offered in China.
If you are not satisfied with Google Photos and are looking for a Gallery app, then you can download the Nokia Gallery app. It is in English and comes with features that you expect from a Gallery app. The app is developed by Evenwell (which probably refers to Evenwell Digitech Inc.) Here are some of its features:

Download Nokia Gallery app
The Nokia gallery app should work on all Nokia phones running Android 8.0 (Oreo). It should also work on non-Nokia phones, but maybe you won’t feel the need because most phones from other OEMs ship with a gallery app.
You can install the Nokia gallery app on any Nokia Android phone running Android 8.0 or higher. You can use it on – Nokia 1, Nokia 2, Nokia 3, Nokia 3.1, Nokia 5, Nokia 5.1, Nokia 5.1 Plus, Nokia 6, Nokia 6.1, Nokia 6.1 Plus, Nokia 7, Nokia 7 plus, Nokia 8, Nokia 8.1 and Nokia 8 Sirocco.

Regarding updates: You will need to manually check this page for updates to the gallery app. We will regularly update the page whenever new versions roll out.
Since Google Photos comes pre-installed, Nokia decided to not include another gallery app on the phone.
We do hope that Nokia at least offers the gallery app via Play Store even if they do not want to pre-install it on the phones.
16/12/2018: Gallery updated to 9.0020.10 (major release) with support for Android Pie.
