Nothing Phone launches on BIS Website, possible debut as first Nothing branded smartphone

CMF by Nothing Set to Launch First Smartphone

In an exciting development, CMF by Nothing, the sub-brand of the UK startup spearheaded by OnePlus Co-Founder Carl Pei, is reportedly gearing up to unveil its inaugural smartphone. Recent sightings of a device with a unique model number on two regulatory websites hint at an imminent launch. Known for its range of wireless audio products, chargers, and wearable fitness trackers, CMF by Nothing is now venturing into the competitive smartphone market with a promise of affordability, similar to its recent release, the Nothing Phone 2a.

New Model Number Sparks Speculation

Android Headlines recently uncovered a new device listed on an unidentified regulatory website under the model number A015. Speculation suggests that this device could be the anticipated Nothing Phone 3 set for a launch in the upcoming months. Reports indicate that the Phone 3 will feature a Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 chip, departing from the trend of high-end mobile processors.

Distinct Model Number Signals New Offering

An intriguing aspect that differentiates the upcoming smartphone from its predecessors is the model number it carries. While the original Nothing Phone and its successor, the Nothing Phone 2, bore model numbers A063 and A065, respectively, the Nothing Phone 2a, aimed at a more accessible price point, donned the model number A142.

We can anticipate that this affordable smartphone from CMF by Nothing may pose competition for devices priced below Rs. 20,000 in the Indian market. Currently, the Phone 2a, the most budget-friendly offering from Nothing, starts at Rs. 23,999, whereas the Nothing Phone 2 launched at Rs. 44,999 last year. Stay tuned for further updates on the impending smartphone from CMF by Nothing in the near future.
