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.

Poco X3

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 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.

Samsung A32

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) 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 8 and Infinix Zero 8. However, the latter has been granted the fourth spot because of the lower battery power and presence of Android 10 as compared to Realme 6.

5) 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. 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 fifth 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.

6) Oppo F19:

Oppo F19 is another midrange smartphone on our list that you can buy under  PKR 40,000. The phone has an AMOLED display with a screen size of 6.4 inches. There is a basic 60 Hz refresh rate for the display. The best thing which I really liked about this phone is its design which is very attractive, and user-friendly. So for those individuals who prefer design over specifications, it is the best smartphone for them. Furthermore, the device is fueled by the Snapdragon 662 (11 nm) chipset which is a relatively weaker chipset if we compare it with the above-mentioned phones on our list. In terms of memory space, there is 6 GB of RAM and internal memory of 128 GB which is enough to store a lot of data.

Furthermore, the Oppo f19 comes with a triple rear camera setup with a resolution of 48 MP +2 MP + 2 MP while the punch hole selfie camera of the phone has a resolution of 16 MP.   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. A powerful 5000 mAh battery is provided in the phone to enable a long battery life.

The reason for placing the Oppo F19 at the bottom of our list is that it has a weaker chipset as compared to the other phones on our list. Moreover, the camera is not as good as the other smartphones like POCO X3, Galaxy A32, etc. Also, it has a simple AMOLED display with a 60 Hz refresh rate due to which it hasn’t been able to grasp the top position on our list.

7) 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 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.
