Smartphones under Rs 40,000 are less popular than smartphones in other price ranges. They do, however, fall into an odd category. They have more functionality than inexpensive smartphones but fall well short of luxury models. Yet, there are some best smartphones in this category.

As expected, the giants like Samsung and Xiaomi have got their smartphones on the list. Also, the ban imposed on smartphones costing over USD 300 in Nepal has limited the number of smartphones in this price category.

Here, we have a list of 2022’s six best smartphones under Rs 40,000 in Nepal as of November 2022.
