Isn't κινητό already 'mobile phone'? I have never heard of a 'κινητό τηλέφωνο'. But using only κινητό was marked wrong...

Both "κινητό" "κινητό τηλέφωνο" are accepted answers. If your sentence was rejected that wasn't the reason. When Duoling rejects a sentence it tells you the reason. But only you can ssee that. We cannot.

Next time that happens be sure to report it as: "My sentence should be accepted." then Duolingo can check for any irregularities.

κινητό τηλέφωνο is often shortened to κινητό: just like "mobile phone" / "cellphone" is often shortened to "mobile" / "cell" :)
