Quick Summary

Nothing has announced that its latest phone will be fully unveiled on Monday 8 July 2024.

It'll be the first handset released under the CMF by Nothing brand and will be joined by new earbuds and a smartwatch.

Nothing has officially confirmed the launch date and time for its new handset – an affordable smartphone released under the CMF by Nothing brand.

The CMF Phone 1 will be fully unveiled on Monday 8 July 2024 at 10am BST. Surprisingly, we'll also be getting new earbuds and a second-gen smartwatch in the form of the CMF Buds Pro 2 and CMF Watch Pro 2.

The launch placeholder / invite doesn't give much away, nor does a post on the official CMF website. You can see some elements of the wheel design we've seen in company teases in the last couple of weeks, plus a number of leaks, but that's about it.

You can also sign up using your email address on the site to be informed when the launch is taking place – and presumably everything about the products when they are revealed.

We'll also be bringing you the latest on the build up too.

As well as a few cheeky tweets from the brand itself, we've learned a few things about the entry-level CMF Phone 1 in the last little while.

As well as the wheel design, which is thought to be a volume rocker, the phone will reportedly be similar to the Nothing Phone (2a) in many of its specs.

It is claimed to run on a MediaTek Dimensity 7200 processor, backed up by a 6 + 2GB RAM combo. There should be 128GB of storage on board.

The display will be 6.7-inch and AMOLED, it is said, with a 120Hz refresh rate. An in-display fingerprint scanner will be available for bio-security, and the handset will be powered by a 5,000mAh battery.

Two 50-megapixel cameras are rumoured for the rear, while the front could have a 16-megapixel snapper.

It will come in a variety of colours, allegedly – orange, black, green and blue.

Perhaps most excitingly, leaked pricing suggests it could be as cheap as £170 on launch. We only have a few weeks to find out for sure.
