A lot of Indian 5G users might not be aware that 5G phones are coming to India soon and the best part is, most of these will be under Rs. 20,000! The upcoming 5G phones in India will feature state-of-the-art technology, including the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, along with multiple cameras and a large battery capacity to keep the phone running efficiently throughout the day. So without further ado, here’s our list of the best affordable 5G phones under Rs. 20,000 in India as of May 2022.
Redmi Note 7 Pro
To give a good first impression, the Redmi Note 7 Pro is one of the best affordable phones to provide a great experience at a low price. The phone has an impressive design with a polished finish and soft curved edges on the front that makes it easy to hold when using it one-handed, while reducing accidental slips and falls when using with two hands.
An aluminium frame is given protection by Corning Gorilla Glass 4, which makes it highly durable and protected from accidental damage such as dropping the phone on its screen or water damage (though you should be careful just in case). Inside, there’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor which provides enough power without overheating while being used intensely or playing demanding games.
For under Rs. 20,000 the Honor Play is one of the best budgeted phone on this list. With a decent camera and battery life, it has great value and could be a really good buy if you’re looking to get into some new technology without breaking the bank. However, we do think that there are better options available under rs 20K but since this is an affordable list I’m going to add it on here because it’s worth noting as a low-cost option and if you’re really interested in seeing what these new technologies are all about then this might be the perfect phone for you – especially considering there’s not many phones that offer full G5 capabilities for this price range.
We also loved how easy it was to navigate through the interface with its large screen. We also liked how powerful the sound was with its Dolby Atmos speakers and how we could just put our earphones in and still hear everything clearly – but unfortunately we found the speakerphone quality quite lacking when calling people back from our contact list which is a big downside! The Honor Play does have amazing graphics (with 2GB of RAM) so if you’re really into playing games or using your phone for social media this is a solid choice. It’s also waterproof which means you can take photos underwater without any problems at all.
One of the best affordable 5G phones under Rs. 20,000 is the Poco F1. It is a budget-friendly phone that can even rival high-end Android flagships thanks to its impressive specs and compact size/budget pricing ratio. The Poco F1 offers flagship grade performance with decent cameras and a high-quality 1080p screen at an attractive price point of just 10,999 rupees ($158). A Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB RAM and 128GB storage means the Poco F1 has power comparable to any other phone on this list.
There’s also a 4000mAh battery powering this device which lasts up to 30 hours on average usage (including watching videos) so you won’t have any worries about running out of juice while you’re on your way home from work or taking care of business around town. Finally, it’s also worth mentioning that there are currently three color variants available: Blue, Black and Red.
Realme 3 Pro
With the company announcing their realme 3 pro release in July of 2019 and that this would be the next generation phone to get a 5g radio in 2020 we are very excited about its potential when it comes to future advancement and the possible networking advancements we could see coming our way because of it’s introduction of a newer generation one with enhancements from 4g to a more advanced version.
We have seen other companies like xiaomi announce similar models like Xiaomi Redmi Pro with no official date announced on it’s launch so there is a good chance realme will beat them too the punch and give us something similar as well but at cheaper prices for those who can’t afford more expensive brands yet.
OPPO Reno 10x Zoom
Finding a cheap but powerful smartphone can be difficult at times and that is exactly why this list was created: to make your shopping experience a bit easier by giving you a list of the best and most affordable devices available in the market today. These are some of the cheapest devices on the market that have 5G capabilities and come with pretty decent specifications that won’t break your bank while still providing a fantastic experience.
The first one on our list is the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom which is equipped with a 48MP rear camera along with multiple camera features such as portrait mode, beautification mode, 3D panorama shot mode and more which gives users full control over their shots.
As far as performance goes, it has an octa-core processor running up to 2.2GHz and comes with 6GB RAM so even if you’re a power user who wants to do heavy multitasking without any lag or stutter issues then this is the phone for you. As far as battery life goes, it’s not too shabby either since it comes with a 4000mAh battery which will last for about one day before needing a charge again!
