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 a 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 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) Realme 6:

Realme has always succeeded to come up with something unique with its every new phone in terms of design and Realme 6 follows the same line. Leaving behind the typical gradient design, the company has added a new comet-like design to the Realme 6 which also appears to be the reason behind their color names that are Comet White and Comet Blue.

The device is going to be equipped with a quad-camera setup. The resolutions of the cameras are 64 MP (wide), 8 MP(ultrawide),  2 MP (macro), and 2 MP(depth). It allows users to make videos of [email protected] The front-facing camera is 16 megapixels The specifications of the phone are also very impressive. Realme 6 will operate on the latest operating system, the Android 10. The smartphone will be powered by the popular midrange Mediatek Helio G90T chipset that would boost the overall performance of the phone.

In terms of display, it has an IPS panel with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. The resolution it provides is 1080 x 2400 pixels. As for the security of the Realme 6 is concerned, you will find that the Realme 6 is packed with a side-mounted fingerprint reader. As far as the storage is concerned, there is 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of ROM. The Realme 6 is available for PKR 36,999/-.

Even though there are some extraordinary specs in Realme 6 but still it couldn’t beat our top contender and place at the second spot. The X3 has a better chipset, battery, refresh rate, memory size, and camera.

3) 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. 

Like the above mentioned on the list, it has a quad-camera setup with 64 MP as the main camera. It allows you to make videos in [email protected]. 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 Realme 6 and Infinix Zero 8. However, the latter has been granted the third spot because of the lower battery power and a higher price tag as compared to Realme 6.

4) 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.

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. The smartphone runs on Android 10 and is controlled by a 4500mAh battery. The Camon 16 Premier backs exclusive quick charging. The phone is equipped with a Mediatek MT6785 Helio G90T chipset. The chipset is there to make the cell phone exceptionally quick.


All things considered, the Tecno Camon 16 Premier on the rear packs a 64-megapixel main camera with an f/1.89 aperture; a second 8-megapixel camera with an f/2.25 aperture; a third 2-megapixel camera with an f/2.4 aperture, and a fourth 2-megapixel camera with an f/1.8 aperture. On the front, the Tecno Camon 16 Premier has a 48-megapixel main camera with an f/2.2 aperture and a second 8-megapixel camera with an f/2.2 aperture.

Camon 16 has 128GB of internal memory that can be extended through a microSD card (up to 512GB). Connectivity choices on the Tecno Camon 16 Premier encompass Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, GPS, and Bluetooth v5.00. Sensors on the phone incorporate a light sensor, compass/magnetometer, proximity sensor, and unique mark sensor.

Because of these high-end specs in this phone, it has managed to grasp the fourth position on our list. Though due to its low refresh rate and display, the phone couldn’t grasp its place in the top 3.

5) 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.

Vivo Y51s


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 fifth 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 4 contenders on our list.

6) Oppo F17:

Oppo F17 is another midrange smartphone that you can buy under  PKR 40,000. The device will be fueled by the Snapdragon 662 chipset. There is an 8 GB of RAM and internal memory of 128 gigabytes that are sufficient to store an immense measure of information..


The Oppo F17  runs on Android 10 OS with ColorOS 7 out of the case to help all the most recent highlights in the savvy tech world. The phone has a Super AMOLED display with a screen size of 6.44 inches and the resolution which it provides is 1080 x 2400 pixels. There is a quad-camera arrangement at the back with a 16 MP main camera which is quite disappointing. The auxiliary sensor will be 8 megapixels and there is a large-scale focal point that offers a 2 megapixels limit.

In terms of connectivity, it has  Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, BDS, USB 2.0, Type-C 1.0 reversible connector,  and USB On-The-Go. The phone is available in Dynamic Orange, Navy Blue, and Classic Silver.

The Oppo F17 has a low-end camera as compared to other phones on this list due to which it hasn’t been able to make a place in the top 5.

7) Realme 7i

The backside of the Realme 7i has a very interesting and distinctive two-tone design going on. The material and finish of the surface are still the same and feel identical, but the geometric transition from glossy to the mat is still rather unique and a conversation-starter. The surface itself is slick and a bit slippery.  The Realme 7i is a bit lighter than the regular Realme 7, despite the fact that it still has the same big 5,000 mAh battery capacity. Whether weight was shaved from different materials, a reduced cooling solution for the lower-end chipset or a less-complicated battery structure can be taken into account.

Realme 7i cost in Pakistan is PKR 36,999. Like many other phones on this list, Realme’s 7i will be fueled by the Snapdragon 662 (11nm) chipset. There is 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. 

Realme 7i maintains a sizeable 6.5-inch display, with a 20:9 aspect ratio and what we would consider quite slim bezels for a midrange device. Despite the size and visual similarity, including the punch hole selfie, the panel is not directly borrowed from the Realme 7. Instead, the Realme 7i has a lower-resolution 720 x 1600-pixel LCD, which is quite disappointing. The Realme 7i is equipped with a quad-camera setup with 64 MP as the main camera. The selfie camera of the phone has a resolution of 16 MP.

Realme 7i


The sole reason for the low ranking of the Realme 7i is its display which is not up to the mark if we compare it with other smartphones on our list. Realme should rethink its decision of installing a 720 p IPS panel in a mid-ranger.

8) Samsung Galaxy A31:

Smartphones Under 40000

Even though the design of the Galaxy A31 isn’t exactly fresh, I do like the fact that it’s slim and much lighter. The all-polycarbonate body feels a little sturdy but it does recognize fingerprints easily. The A31 has a noticeably thick chin below the screen and an Infinity-U cutout at the top for the front-facing camera. There’s a big SIM tray on the left, for two SIM cards and a microSD card. The headphone jack, USB Type-C port, and speaker are at the bottom side of the smartphone.

The Galaxy A31 has a brilliant 6.4-inch full-HD+  Super AMOLED display that provides a resolution of 1080×2400 pixels. It’s more than adequate in terms of brightness, even in the daylight. The colors are very rich and vivid. However, there is no 90 Hz refresh rate.

Samsung has used the MediaTek Helio P65 octa-core SoC, and that doesn’t suit the phone that is slightly under 40,000 rupees.  Compared to even the Galaxy M21, which uses the Exynos 9611 and costs a lot less, the Galaxy A31 is slower in the majority of the benchmarks. The operating system, on the phone, is Android 10.

In terms of the camera, there is a quad-camera setup with 48 MP as the main camera that doesn’t allow to make 4K videos. The selfie camera on the phone is 20 MP. There is a 5000 mAh powerful battery. The Galaxy A31 is available for PKR 36,999/-.

As it is evident, the reason for placing the A31 at the last spot is mainly its chipset and camera that are quite disappointing and cant match any of the above-mentioned contenders. However, if you are brand conscious and want a good display then only I would recommend this phone.

Our Conclusion:

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.

Overall performance:

If you want the overall performance to be good, then I would prefer Poco X3 and Realme 6  that are probably the best smartphones under 40000.

For Display:

If someone is more conscious about the display, then I would certainly recommend the two products from Vivo on our list and Galaxy A31.
