CMF Phone 1 with Orange Leather Back, Smart Dial Launch Confirmed

CMF Phone 1 with Orange Leather Back, Smart Dial Launch Confirmed

Earlier today, Nothing CEO Carl Pei hinted that the launch of Phone (3) might be delayed until 2025. Now, CMF, a sub-brand of Nothing, has officially announced the release of its first smartphone, the CMF Phone 1. The teaser image offers a sneak peek at what to expect from this new device. For those who don't know, CMF by Nothing targets the budget-friendly market segment. Previously, key specifications of this sub-brand’s debut smartphone were leaked.

CMF Phone 1 is Launching Soon

In a tweet, CMF described its first smartphone as having an exceptional design. It aims to utilize Nothing’s innovative design philosophy and meticulous attention to detail. The sub-brand is focusing on an often-overlooked market segment. The CMF Phone 1 will act as an entry-level device into the company’s broader product ecosystem, indicating it will be an affordable option.

However, don't expect the CMF Phone 1 to look like Nothing’s existing smartphones. The teaser image confirms it won’t have a transparent back panel or the Glyph interface. Instead, it will feature a leather-textured back panel in an Orange color, consistent with the sub-brand’s other devices. Notably, there is a dial on the bottom right side of the device similar to the one found on the Neckband Pro. Its function on the smartphone is still unclear.

Availability and Specifications

The CMF Phone 1 will be available on Flipkart in India, like other devices from the brand.

Leaked specs indicate the CMF Phone 1 will sport a 6.7-inch 120Hz OLED display, a 50MP rear camera, and a 16MP front camera. It is rumored to be powered by a Dimensity 7200 SoC, coupled with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The phone is expected to be priced between $249 to $279 and could be launched next month.
