Nothing, a tech company founded by former OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, is set to launch its new sub-brand CMF by Nothing on September 26, 2023. The brand aims to offer affordable and accessible tech products with vibrant colors and designs. However, a recent leak has exposed the images and specifications of the first three products from CMF by Nothing: a smartwatch, a pair of earbuds, and a charger.
Watch Pro: A smartwatch with a bright display and health features
The CMF by Nothing Watch Pro is a smartwatch that comes with a 1.96-inch AMOLED screen with Always-on Display (AOD) support. The screen has a peak brightness of 600 nits and a refresh rate of 50 Hz. The watch has an aluminum alloy case and offers 100 watch faces and 110 sports modes to choose from.
The Watch Pro also boasts of various health features, such as a heart rate monitor, blood oxygen sensor, sleep tracking, stress monitor, and Bluetooth 5.3 calling with AI noise reduction. The watch is IP68 certified for water and dust resistance and has GPS capabilities. The watch is powered by a 330 mAh battery that can last for around 13 days with AOD turned off.
The Watch Pro is expected to retail in India for INR 4,500 (around $54), while the international price is $69.
Buds Pro: Earbuds with ANC and Ultra Bass technology
The CMF by Nothing Buds Pro are earbuds that feature an impressive 45dB Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and Ultra Bass technology. The earbuds can deliver up to 11 hours of continuous music playback with ANC turned off, thanks to their 55 mAh batteries. They have 10mm dynamic drivers, three HD microphones per bud, a Clear Calls algorithm, and an Anti-wind noise structure.
The earbuds also support fast charging, with just a 10-minute charge providing 3.5 hours of usage. The charging case, which has a 460 mAh capacity, is rated IP54 for dust and water resistance.
The Buds Pro are expected to cost INR 3,500 ($42) in India.
Charger: A 65W GaN charger with multiple protocols
The CMF by Nothing Charger is a 65W GaN charger that supports various fast charging technologies, including USB PD 3.0, Qualcomm QuickCharge 4.0+/3.0/2.0, and charging protocols for Apple and Samsung devices. It also supports SCP, FCP, PPS, and DCP standards.
The charger has a compact design and an early bird price of INR 2,499 ($30) in India.
A departure from Nothing’s transparent design language
The CMF by Nothing products are a stark contrast to Nothing’s transparent design language that features minimal colors. The sub-brand seems to be all about bright colors that pop and stand out from the crowd.
Nothing has not officially confirmed the leak or the launch date of the CMF by Nothing products. However, the products have been registered with the Bureau of Indian Standards in India, indicating that they will be available in the country soon.
