The Nokia 6.1 arrives in the US this weekend, after launching in China back in January. The 6.1 is an update to last year’s Nokia 6, offering small but solid improvements in a number of ways. Perhaps most notably, this year’s version runs Android One, which means it has stock Android and guaranteed updates for two years.

Otherwise, the phone looks really similar to last year’s model. It still has a 5.5-inch 1080p display, and it’s still at a 16:9 aspect ratio, rather than adopting the bezel-free look that’s coming to more and more phones. The bezels do appear to be slightly narrower this year, though, and the fingerprint sensor has been moved to the back. The phone also jumps up to a Snapdragon 630 processor, 4GB of RAM, and USB-C charging (instead of a 430, 3GB, and Micro USB). Plus it has a headphone jack.

It’s definitely more of a mid-range phone this year thanks to those bumped up specs. The downside is, they also come with a price jump: it’s now going to sell for $269 instead of $229. You could even get it as low as $180 last year thanks to Amazon’s offer with lock-screen ads, but that isn’t available anymore. So this is basically a $90 price jump.

The phone launches on Sunday and will initially be available through Amazon and Best Buy.
