The smartphone market has become excessively competitive, and the cost of a premium flagship phone is increasing every day. In this case, one might think that it is not possible to get a smartphone without wanting to spend a lot. However, there are still multiple promising smartphones that come at a decent price with features that take them very close to a flagship phone.

OnePlus is known for being a flagship-killer for a long time now, and the OnePlus 11R 5G fits that category perfectly. The OnePlus 11R 5G was launched shortly after the flagship OnePlus 11, and gathered a lot of attention. The phone comes with multiple features, but, in this article, we will try and explain why it is the best smartphone under 40,000 in India. We will look at the features of the phone and see what value it provides for the price it comes at. Let's take a look.


Flagship phones are built for durability to last long. The OnePlus 11R 5G comes with a solid build supported by glass front and back. The glass on the phone is the durable Gorilla Glass 5 which adds extreme protection against drops and scratches. The phone will not be scathed or scratched with the keys and coins in your pocket. The frame of the phone is plastic, which might raise some durability concerns.

However, it does not affect the overall build of the phone and the frame can be easily protected by applying a case. The 204g weight of the phone is not on the high side, and feels fairly comfortable to hold in the hand.


The display is the most used part of the smartphone. A smooth and vibrant display enhances the experience of using the smartphone. The OnePlus 11R 5G comes with a 6.74-inch FLUID AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz. The display has HDR10+ compatibility and support for 1 billion colours. This makes the display colourful, sharp, smooth and vibrant.

The content watching experience is immersive with this display, and the HDR10+ support makes it even more engaging and fun. The peak brightness of 1450 nits makes the display fairly visible under direct sunlight.


The OnePlus 11R 5G comes with Android 13 out of the box. This is the latest Android operating system, so the users will get all the new and improved features of the operating system. The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor. It is a powerful processor that can handle multitasking, heavy apps and games.

This is a good processor for users who want to get into the world of mobile Esports without investing in a high-end smartphone. The Adreno 730 GPU can handle games like PUBG, Call of Duty: Mobile, and Apex Legends at the highest graphics settings. You can get the phone in multiple variants, with the base variant coming with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage option.


The OnePlus 11R 5G has a triple camera setup with a 50MP primary camera. The primary camera is able to take stunning photos, and can match the performance of many premium flagship smartphones. The main camera also has OIS (optical image stabilization) making videos look stable and better.

The primary camera is supported by an 8MP Ultrawide lens and a 2MP macro lens. Both lenses perform well, and produce some detail-rich images. The 16MP front camera captures details without over processing the surroundings or the skin tones.
