Nothing’s first budget phone launch is getting closer: new teaser reveals more

Nothing has teased its upcoming smartphone on X, which shows a screw head on the back of a device with a matte texture and a curved corner. It resembles the bottom corner of a smartphone, and rumors suggest this could be the new CMF phone (1). The company shared the cryptic image of the device, which appears to be in development, with the caption: “3, 2, 1.”

This suggests that the company will soon launch the upcoming Nothing device. There are also rumors that the device could be Nothing’s first tablet, while some hinted that it would be the base panel of a laptop.

However, some time later, the company’s official handle shared another post with a phone and a screw emoji indicating that the teased device would be a smartphone.

Last month, the company’s CEO Carl Pei teased a few photos of the upcoming Nothing Phone 3 on his social media account, X, showing a redesigned quick settings menu on the smartphone. In addition, the phone had an additional button on the right side of the smartphone, which is believed to be an action button like the iPhone.

Following previous trends, London-based tech startup Nothing usually launches its phones in the month of July, and the timing of these teasers aligns with expectations for a new product launch. According to a report from Android Police, the screw in the latest teaser indicates a focus on repairability and could follow a similar design philosophy to the Fairphone 5.

Furthermore, the upcoming device may be launched under Nothing’s sub-brand, CMF, which is known for its distinct design language. CMF is reportedly developing its first smartphone, which is expected to have a price tag of less than Rs 15,000.

The rumored CMF Phone 1 may have a MediaTek Dimensity 7200 chipset, a 6.7-inch OLED display, a 5,000mAh battery with 33W charging, and even replaceable back covers.
