HMD Global’s updated version of the Nokia 3 — the Nokia 3.1 — is making its way to the US. Preorders are available now for the Android One smartphone at the relatively low price of $169, via Android Central.

Of course, a $169 smartphone won’t give you the same firepower as a pricier flagship, but the updated version doesn’t seem to be a terrible phone for what you’re paying: the updated Nokia 3.1 update offers a 5.2-inch HD display, a 1.5GHz MediaTek octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage, with a 13-megapixels rear shooter and an 8-megapixel wide-angle front-facing camera.

More importantly, the Nokia 3.1 is also an Android One smartphone, which means it runs an untouched version of Android optimized for the lower specs on the phone, and it should get regular security updates for three years.

There’s no word yet on the Nokia 5.1 or 2.1 models, which were announced at the same time as the 3.1, but FCC filings indicate that the other phones might not be too far behind.
