Best Smartphones Under 40000 in Pakistan
1) Poco X3:
Xiaomi has recently launched an extravagant midrange smartphone, the Poco X3. It’s a new edition to the X series and the phone has amazed many due to its super specs. Also, Poco has gone ahead with a fresh design for the Poco X3, and it does not resemble any Redmi model that’s already available in the smartphone market. Unlike its predecessor, the new X3 doesn’t have dual selfie cameras and has a single one instead, located right in the center towards the top of the screen. There has been no change in the display though, and you still get a 6.67-inch IPS panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. The resolution that the phone provides is 1080 x 2400 pixels. For any individual who is fond of playing games, the 120 Hz refresh rate would boost the overall gaming experience. The display is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
Now moving towards the more powerful attributes of the smartphone. The Poco X3 is equipped with Qualcomm SM7150-AC Snapdragon 732G (8 nm) which is a considerably powerful chipset to enhance the overall performance of the phone. In addition to that, there is 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB ROM. And this doesn’t end here, the Poco X3 is also packed with a gigantic 7000 mAh battery so you can spend an unlimited amount of time on your phone. The Poco X3 comes with a Quad rear camera with 64 MP as the main camera. It renders videos of [email protected], [email protected]/120fps, and [email protected]
The Poco X3 has managed to grasp the first position on our list because of its unparallel specifications. It is probably one of the best smartphones under 40000 released lately. No other smartphone in this list has all these features under this price range. Though it’s slightly over 40,000 you might get a discount on it. But this is the only phone that beats every single phone on this list at a decent margin.
2) Samsung A32:
The tech giant Samsung has revived its legacy in the midrange smartphone series through the launch of some brilliant smartphones in the latest A series. Currently, the latest Samsung A32 is one of the best smartphones that you can purchase from the market. The Samsung A32 comes with a prolific design with much resemblance to the S20 and S21 series. Personally, I really love the design of the A32. The phone comes with a super AMOLED display with a screen size of 6.4 inches. In addition to that, it has a refresh rate of 90 Hz which makes it a reasonably efficient phone.
For performance, the A32 is equipped with a MediaTek Helio G80 (12 nm) chipset which is brilliant for gaming. In terms of camera, the phone is equipped with a quad rear camera with a resolution of 64 MP + 8 MP + 5 MP + 5 MP. The selfie camera of the phone has a resolution of 20 MP. In terms of memory space, it has 6 GB of RAM while 128 GB of internal storage which is quite enough for an average user. Also, the presence of One UI makes it very user-friendly. Furthermore, the phone is powered by a 5000 mAh battery for a long-lasting experience. The phone is available for PKR 39,999/-.
The reasons for placing the Samsung A32 in the second spot are obvious: quality, brand name, looks, and performance. However, you must be thinking that why it didn’t manage to grasp the top spot. The sole reason is that the POCO X3 has got a much better chipset with 8nm technology due to which it has been placed on the first spot.

3) Realme 8:
Realme has always succeeded to come up with something unique with its every new phone in terms of design and Realme 8 follows the same line. This phone has got some extravagant specifications under a reasonable price tag. The Realme 8 is powered by Helio G95 that is the latest and one of the best performing chipset these days in midrange smartphones. The Realme 8 features 8 GB of RAM along with 128 GB of internal storage capacity for storing heavy data. Together, the memory space and chipset make the phone very efficient. The smartphone has a super AMOLED display with a screen size of 6.4 inches.
However, the refresh rate of the display is 60 Hz which is slightly on the lower side. Now coming towards the camera, the Realme 8 comes with a quad rear camera with a resolution of 64 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP + 2 MP. There is a 16 MP punch hole camera provided in the phone. Furthermore, the phone is equipped with a powerful 5000 mAh battery for long usage along with a fast charger of 30 W. In addition to that, there is an optical fingerprint scanner available in the phone which might not work like the flagship optical fingerprint scanners. Realme 8 is available for PKR 39,999/-.
Realme 8 is overall a good phone and one of the best smartphones available in the market under 40k. However, the phone was not able to beat the top two because POCO X3 has got a much better chipset while Samsung A32 took the second spot because of the presence of One UI. Moreover, Samsung A32 has got a much better display with a 90 Hz refresh rate. Also, the optical fingerprint may not work properly as expected from the phones of this price range.
4) Xiaomi Redmi Note 10S:
The Redmi Note series from Xiaomi has been amazing the users for a long time now. The Redmi Note 10s is the new addition to this lineup and it has followed the legacy of the note series. The new Redmi Note 10S comes with a 6.43 inches AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. The peak brightness which it offers is 450 nits. For protection purposes, the phone is covered with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Furthermore, the smartphone is equipped with IP53 dust and water protection.
Now moving towards the performance and memory of the Redmi Note 10S. The phone features a humungous 8GB of RAM along with 128 GB of internal memory. It is enough to store loads of data and allows users to surf at a rapid pace. However, if you still want to increase the memory of your smartphone, then there is an option of a micro SD card available on the phone. In terms of performance, the new Redmi 10S is equipped with a powerful Mediatek Helio G95 (12 nm) chipset. In addition to that, the operating system on the phone is the latest Android 11. It is one of the chipsets that can provide an immersive gaming experience to the users. If we talk about the camera, the phone is equipped with a quad rear camera setup with the main lens of 64 MP. The Redmi Note 10S is available for PKR 39,999 in the local market.
Redmi Note 10S has managed to grasp the fourth position on our list because the phone is equipped with some excellent specs including an AMOLED screen, G95 processor, etc. at this price tag. However, it couldn’t beat the top contenders because they have better cameras, displays, and chipsets.
5) Infinix Zero 8:
The latest Infinix Zero 8 is a glorious example of unique visual language. The large and distinctive rhombus camera module on the backside tends to leave an enduring impression. To an extent, that we wonder why we haven’t witnessed this specific visual distinction from other smartphone manufacturers.
Apart from the prolific design, it has some brilliant specifications as well. It comes with an IPS display with a 90 Hz refresh rate. The screen resolution of the phone is 1080 x 2460 pixels and the size of the screen is 6.85 inches. It runs on the latest operating system the Android 10.

In addition to that, there is a dual front camera for taking sharper selfies. Zero 8 is also equipped with a powerful gaming chipset, Mediatek MT6785 Helio G90T. In terms of memory, there is a massive 8 GB of RAM along with 128 GB of ROM. The phone is packed with a 4500 mAh battery which is slightly on the lower side. Zero 8 is available in PKR 39,999/-. It is till now probably one of the best smartphones under 40000 by Infinix.
As we can see that there is not much of a difference in the specifications of the Redmi Note 10S and Infinix Zero 8. However, the latter has been granted the fifth spot because of the lower battery power and presence of Android 10 as compared to Note 10S.
6) Tecno Camon 16 Premier
Tecno launched its new Camon 16 premier that has the moniker Premier toward the end which shows that it will be one of the very good quality phones of the company. The specs look magnificent. Tecno Camon 16 Premier is loaded with sufficient amazing specs that will put the smartphone in the rundown of top-of-the-line cell phones. It is one of the best smartphones under 40000.
The phone accompanies a 6.90-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1080×2460 pixels. Tecno Camon 16 Premier is equipped with 8GB of RAM.

Because of these high-end specs in this phone, it has managed to grasp the sixth position on our list. Though due to its low refresh rate, display, and average camera, the phone couldn’t grasp its place in the top 3.
7) Vivo Y53s:
Vivo has been launching some brilliant smartphones in the midrange category for some time now. The new Vivo Y53s is the new addition to the local market. The phone comes 6.58 inches IPS LCD display with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. The resolution which the display provides is 1080 x 2408 pixels. However, there is no Corning Gorilla Glass for protection purposes. In addition to that, the phone is equipped with a 5000 mAh battery along with an 18W fast charger,
In terms of memory space, following the other contenders, the phone comes with 8GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. The memory is quite enough for storing and processing heavy bits of data. If we talk about the performance of the phone, it comes with a basic Qualcomm SM4350 Snapdragon 480 5G (8 nm) chipset. Though it has a 5G support we can’t claim that it will be good for gaming and other heavy usages. As it is the basic Qualcomm 4 series. Moreover, the phone operates on the latest Android 11. The new Y53S comes with a dual 64 MP camera and an 8 MP selfie camera. The vivo Y53S is available for PKR 40,999.
The vivo Y53S has managed to attain the seventh position on our list. The reasons are obvious. The smartphone has a basic chipset that can’t compete with our top contenders. Furthermore, the presence of IPS LCD, low resolution, and the camera quality can be counted as the other reasons due to which Y53S couldn’t grasp a place in the top 6.
8) Vivo Y51s:
Vivo is also back with another excellent midrange, the Y51s. In the case of display, the phone has an IPS panel. It is probably one of the best smartphones under 40000 which Vivo has offered till now. The size of the screen is 6.6 inches and the resolution which it provides is 1080 x 2408 pixels. Though, there is no 90 Hz refresh rate. The Y 51 has a pre-enabled Funtouch OS 11 based on Android 10.
The chipset installed in the smartphone is Qualcomm SDM665 Snapdragon 662 which is not comparatively powerful to other phones mentioned on the list. There is a triple-camera set up with a 48-megapixel main camera. You will be able to make 4K videos like the other phones on this list. There is a 16 MP front-facing camera.
As far as the storage space are concerned, there are 8 GB of RAM and 128 of ROM that is quite okay. In terms of battery power, the Vivo Y51 supports a 5000mAh battery that works pretty well with a phone of this price category. The phone also features the latest trend of Type-C charging ports.
The Y51 has managed to get the last place on our list because of some apparent reasons. Though, the memory size beats the above-mentioned phones but, apart from that the chipset and camera couldn’t match the top contenders on our list.
All of the devices discussed above are fulfilling your requirements. These devices are offering you amazing specs at affordable prices. You can compare the specs with the flagship devices available in the market and you will definitely get satisfactory results. All these Smartphones Under 40000 are providing you the experience of flagship devices.
If you want the overall performance to be good, then I would prefer Poco X3 and Samsung A32 that are probably the best smartphones under 40000.
If someone is more conscious about the display, then I would certainly recommend the Redmi Note 10S and the Samsung A32.
