According to leaked info, the price will edge up a bit and the new model will cost 135. That is compensated with more RAM and storage out of the box 3/64GB. Compare that to the original, which was 120 and came with 2GB of RAM and 32GB storage.
There is also a slight tweak to the design, you can see that theres a bit of a gradient going on. Heres the 2019 model for comparison:

However, the phone still has teardrop-shaped notch on the front and a single camera on the back, that much hasnt changed. Even the resolution of the rear camera is the same, 13MP.
