The tiny Mony Mint 4G smartphone has appeared on Indiegogo, managing to meet its fund goal of HKD $4,000 (US$514) within 15 minutes. The “smallest 4G smartphone” sports a 3-inch display and is powered by a quad-core MT6739 chip. Super early bird backers can snap up the Mony Mint for just US$99.

A Chinese startup called Mony has revealed the Mint smartphone on Indiegogo, and clearly the tiny device is attracting interest from backers as its modest goal of HKD $4,000 (US$514) has already been massively surpassed. At the time of writing, 89 backers had supplied HKD $72,900 (about US$9,370), and it’s likely there will be much more to come for the Mony Mint phone yet.

Described as “the smallest 4G smartphone”, the Mony Mint has a 3-inch display but still manages to sport front and rear cameras, with 2 MP and 5 MP sensors, respectively. GPS is included, and Mony claims the Mint can be used around the world thanks to its extensive LTE band support in Europe, Asia, and America.

The Mony Mint features an MT6739 processor from MediaTek that can manage a clock rate of up to 1.5 GHz, and it also comes with 3 GB RAM and 64 GB storage. The phone measures 89.5 x 45.5 x 11.5 mm (3.5 x 1.8 x 0.45 in) and comes in blue and black, although pink is mentioned in the specs sheet. The pocket-size device runs on Android 9.0, offers dual-SIM support, and it has a 1,250-mAh battery.

Super early bird backers can reserve a Mony Mint smartphone for US$99, while the regular early bird price is US$115, there is an Indiegogo special price at US$129, and the MSRP is US$149. Manufacturing and shipping are penciled in for November, so it won’t be a long wait for backers to get their hands (or fingers at least) on the purported smallest 4G smartphone.
