The best-selling smartphone in South Africa you’ve never heard of

Mobile technology company Mint Connect said its low-cost device, the Mint Fox, was the best-selling smartphone in South Africa for seven months in a row. Mint Connect rebranded this year after changing its name in 2014, after it acquired CZ Electronics. The company said it sold between 500,000 to 600,000 units of the Mint Fox between April 2016 and August 2017.

It was the best-selling smartphone in South Africa from February to August this year, added the company. The Mint Fox is available from MTN and through several retail channel partners – including Ackermans, JET, Edgars, OK Furniture, and Dunns. It currently sells for R400, which includes 100MB of free data per month for six months.
