Nothing has introduced the CMF Phone 1, its maiden smartphone offering under its sub-brand CMF. While the company has not shared official details of the smartphone, a report has surfaced online claiming to have the pricing information. According to consumer technology news platform 91mobiles, the CMF Phone 1 will have a box printed price of Rs 19,999 for 6GB RAM + 128GB storage model. The report also noted that the actual selling price of the smartphone would be much lower at Rs 17,999. If it turns out to be true, the CMF Phone 1 will become the cheapest smartphone by Nothing.

For context, Nothing on June 6 announced the CMF Phone 1, calling the upcoming smartphone from its sub-brand an entry-point to its product ecosystem. In the post on X, Nothing mentioned that the CMF Phone 1 will leverage the company’s innovation in the smartphone category and offers an entry point to Nothing’s product ecosystem.

It is rumoured that the CMF Phone 1 would be rebranded version of Nothing Phone 2a, which was launched earlier this year at Rs 23,999 onwards. The CMF Phone 1, however, will have a different design theme and a slightly underpowered processor.
