The new CMF brand created by Nothing should soon present its first connected watch and wireless headphones. A leak reveals a preview of future products.
At the beginning of August, Nothing announced the creation of its CMF sub-brand. Its objective is to offer low-cost products starting with a connected watch and wireless headphones, before the end of the year. This is reminiscent of the strategy of the Redmi brand, under a Xiaomi brand also specializing in value for money.
We now know more about the first products of CMF by Nothing, thanks to a leak published on Telegram and relayed by GSMArena.
A watch without WearOS
The flagship of this first line of three products will be the CMF Watch Pro, a connected watch. It should have a 1.96 inch AMOLED screen with function Always-On Display, a refresh rate of 50 Hz and a brightness of 600 cd/m². Its case would be made of aluminum and would offer resistance to dust and water IP68.
The watch would not run on Google Wear OS, but a small proprietary system capable of offering 100 different dials and 110 physical activities. There would be at least a GPS, a heart rate sensor and oxygen saturation in the blood (SpO2). The watch would also be able to track sleep, breathing and stress. The 330 mAh battery would be able to run the watch for 13 days without the Always On Display.
The CMF Watch Pro is reportedly priced very competitively at Rs 4,500, i.e. approximately 50 euros excluding tax.
Headphones and a 65W GaN charger
Second product to leak: CMF Buds Pro headphones. We are promised here 11 hours of autonomy in music playback, active noise reduction of 45 Db, IP54 certification and fast charging via the 460 mAh box.
For the audio, we will have to wait to have them in our ears to judge, but the published image mentions a “ ultra bass technology », three microphones per earpiece and the use of 10mm dynamic drivers. These headphones would be marketed at 3500 rupees, or around 40 euro.
CMF would finally offer a small 65W GaN charger at 3000 rupees, i.e. 33 euros. It would be able to offer up to 65W on its two USB-C ports and 36W on its USB-A port. Good point, the charger would support Samsung’s 18W protocol to quickly charge a product from the Korean manufacturer.
The announcement of these three products is expected on September 26, 2023.
