How many times have you exclaimed (or heard people exclaim) that today’s smartphones have become too bulky? Just think back to 2012 and the Xiaomi Mi 2 with its 4.3″, while today’s Xiaomi Mi 11 measures 6.81″. Sure, the work of optimizing the bezels means that the front space is better exploited than in the past, but manufacturers have not skimped on increasing the diagonals of the screens. And that’s normal: we enjoy so much multimedia content from our smartphones that having a large screen is an obvious advantage. But there are also those who use their smartphones more as a tool than as entertainment and would rather have a more compact phone. And that’s where Mony Mint comes in, a new Chinese smartphone that bets everything on its small size.
Mony Mint is the world’s smallest 4G smartphoneDo you
remember the Palm Phone of 2018, which with its 3.3″ stood out from the crowd in a world of smartphones above 6″? Mony Mint’s aim is the same, lowering the bar even further with its 3″ diagonal, for a 480p (854 x 480 pixels) screen with LCD technology. The body measures 89.5 x 45.5 x 11.5 mm for a weight of 75 g and is available in Black and Blue. Inside is a hardware configuration consisting of a MediaTek MT6735, a somewhat dated 28nm solution, but it’s one of the compromises of having such a small phone.
