Chinese OEM Mony has launched the world’s smallest 4G-ready smartphone dubbed, the Mony Mint, which the brand claims “can do it all.” There are multiple situations where you fancy using an inexpensive phone rather than a steeply-priced, high-end smartphone. Feature phones do not always fit the bill since a significant amount of communication is done via apps.
Rather than following in the footsteps of leading handset manufacturers that are doling out bigger smartphones, Mony has gone against the grain to launch what it describes as the world’s smallest 4G smartphone. According to the company, Mint is designed to replace the expensive primary phone in situations where using them is inconvenient. For instance, carrying a bulky phone while exercising outside can cause a lot of inconveniences.
Price & Availability
The Mony Mint will not set you back a pretty penny. The lightweight phone is available for just $150. However, you can get your hands on the Mony Mint for a lowered price by taking advantage of a Super Early Bird offer on Indiegogo. As part of the offer, the phone will be available for only $100. Aside from that, there are other slots dubbed the Early Bird and Indiegogo Special. Under the Early Bird offer, the phone is available for $115. Likewise, it retails for $130 under the Indiegogo Special offer. The smartphone will start shipping from November this year.
Mony Mint sports a tiny 3-inch touch display. This is slightly smaller than the Palm Phone, which features a 3.3-inch display and comes with LTE connectivity support. The phone adopts an elegant, pint-sized design that grabs your attention. The minimalist design is extended to the availability of side buttons and ports. Aside from a USB-C port, the phone only features a power and volume button.
Moreover, the compact handset will ship with 3GB of RAM, and offer 64GB of onboard storage capacity. You can use the SD card slot to expand the phone’s built-in storage up to 164GB. The dual-SIM smartphone comes with a myriad of popular apps preinstalled. It runs on Android 9 OS.
The compact handset can prove to be an ideal travel companion, considering that it works with leading wireless networks across the globe. When making network calls is not possible, the Mony Mint can come in handy since it supports wireless calls. Furthermore, it is also useful while traveling since it comes with an additional SIM slot that allows you to get more out of the device. The phone draws its juices from a 1250mAh battery. This robust battery delivers up to three days (72 hours) of battery life when fully charged.
