You can do this only if you launch from a command line. Use --Border (alias -B) followed by either void or frame. For example...

mintty -B void

Per man mintty (which you should read) the difference is:

Suppress window title, display only a frame or no border.

So void results in no border at all and frame, yep, just a frame.

You will have to use keyboard shortcuts to move the window around, of course.
