CMF by Nothing has a good number of accessories under its portfolio. Now, it seems that the sub-brand is getting ready to launch its first-ever phone. At least, that's what the recent rounds of rumors are hinting at. As for the latest leak, it suggests that the device will be a cheaper version of Nothing Phone 2a.

Since the introduction of CMF by Nothing, Nothing's sub-brand, the company has launched a good number of products. However, all of them are accessories, and the sub-brand has yet to release a smartphone under its name. Well, it seems that will change sooner than later.

There have been a good number of leaks on CMF by Nothing Phone 1 recently, with the latest one revealing some specs. It comes from MlgmXyysd, a reputed Android developer and leaker, and according to the leak, the core specs of the rumored smartphone will be similar to the recently launched Nothing Phone 2a (available on Amazon).

More specifically, MlgmXyysd says that the CMF Phone 1 will pack MediaTek Dimensity 7200, which is basically the same chipset as the one inside the Nothing Phone 2a. It's also said to come with the same battery capacity, 5000 mAh, but with 33W fast charging support instead of 45W.

Besides that, the leak claims that the first CMF by Nothing Android phone will sport a 6.67-inch OLED screen with a 120 Hz refresh rate. While MlgmXyysd has also talked about the smartphone with a dual camera setup on the back, the leaker is unsure about the secondary camera. The primary one is said to be a 50 MP sensor, though.

Other notable aspects of the leak include a replaceable plastic back cover, a Nothing Lock that's apparently for exclusive add-ons, up to 256 GB of storage, and 8 GB of RAM. The CMF Phone 1 will reportedly start at $249 and will come in Black, Green, Blue, and an Indian-exclusive Orange colorway.

One interesting thing about the design that the leak has shared is that there won't be any Glyph interface, a standout feature for Nothing phones. But again, if the CMF phone does come with a replaceable plastic back, it will be hard to incorporate the lighting elements.
