CMF Phone 1

London-based brand CMF, a subsidiary of Nothing, has unveiled the CMF Phone 1, featuring a highly customizable modular design and impressive hardware specs for an Android smartphone starting at just $199.

CMF Phone 1: Impressive Hardware Specifications

The phone is equipped with a MediaTek Dimensity 7300 chipset and boasts a 6.67-inch FHD, 120Hz AMOLED display. It includes a 50MP Sony rear camera with an additional depth sensor for portraits, and a 16MP front-facing camera.

CMF Phone 1: Long-Lasting Battery and Ample Storage

Powered by a 5,000 mAh battery, the phone promises up to two days of usage on a single charge. The base model includes 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.3, and 9-band Dual 5G. However, as a budget-friendly device, it lacks certain features such as NFC and wireless charging, and is only splash-resistant.

Unique Modular Design

What sets the CMF Phone 1 apart is its unique modular design, featuring a screw-based system for interchangeable backplates and accessories. Users can customize their phone with different colored shells—black, orange, blue, and light green—priced at $35 each. The phone comes with a flathead screwdriver and screws for easy customization, including a color-matched SIM tray.

Optional Accessories for Added Functionality

One notable feature is the dial-style pop-out screw point for attaching optional accessories, such as a kickstand, a MagSafe-style wallet case, and a lanyard, each available for $25. Alongside the phone, CMF is also releasing the new CMF Buds Pro 2 wireless earbuds and the CMF Watch Pro 2 smartwatch.

Launch and Pricing Details

The CMF Phone 1 launches this week in the UK and EU, with a US launch set for later in July through a “Beta Program.” Priced at $199 in the US, £209 in the UK, and €239 in the EU, this innovative device is expected to generate high demand and potential waitlists.
