  • CMF by Nothing is a newer budget-friendly sub-brand with a rumored phone on the way.
  • According to a post by the company, the CMF Phone 1 features a Sony 50MP camera with f/1.8 lens and enhanced algorithms.
  • The CMF Phone 1 may lack Optical Image Stabilization in its rear camera array, however.

No mobile phone manufacturer has been getting the most attention lately, but while their flagship products are competitive, so are their prices. However, the company has rolled out a sub-brand called CMF by Nothing, which stands for "Color, Materials, Finish." The idea is that CMF can continue to provide consumers with well-designed products within their budget without sacrificing quality. Now, CMF is gearing up to launch the CMF Phone 1, and details of its specifications are being announced.

CMF by Nothing recently posted an update on X (formerly Twitter) revealing the camera specs of the CMF Phone 1. As it turns out, the company has tapped Sony for this feature, and the device comes equipped with a 50MP Sony camera with an f/1.8 lens. It will also feature algorithms to enhance photos, such as Ultra XDR. The goal is to produce the brightest, highest quality photos possible, regardless of lighting conditions.

However, the update makes no mention of optical image stabilization, suggesting that it will not be included (via GSM Arena). These details were shared by the manufacturer as part of a major promotional event to unveil its upcoming products. In addition to the CMF Phone 1, CMF by Nothing is expected to unveil the Buds Pro 2, which will have improved noise cancellation capabilities over its predecessor. The CMF Watch Pro 2 is also in the works and will support over 100 different watch faces. The launch date for these devices is set for July 8th.

Over the past few days, CMF by Nothing has been teasing various components of the CMF Phone 1. First shown was the device's 6.67-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. However, the leaker has somewhat blew up the company's party, revealing more than just what it revealed in its own specs. Either way, CMF by Nothing will be available on July 8th, and a first look at what the company has to offer is sure to give you a better idea.
