When your smartphone budget exceeds 50,000 rupees, it’s a whole different world. Many of today’s ambitious mobile phones can be found in the 50,000 to 60,000 price range. A good example of this is the two Apple iPhones on this list. It’s also a much smarter purchase now, as you can get the top variants of the previous generation flagship phones at a significantly lower price than the launch price. Now let’s take a look at the top options you can get if you have a budget of Rs 60,000 for your next call.
The best phone to buy for less than 60,000 rupees in India
Apple iPhone 12 Mini
Start with the first of the two iPhones. The smallest 64GB variant of Apple’s iPhone 12 series phones is currently available for purchase for Rs 60,000. Phone sizes have grown over the past few years, and the Apple iPhone 12 Mini wants to reverse that trend. And it’s commendable not only for its small footprint, but also for its form factor to take advantage of the right flagship features without missing anything important from its big siblings. Why are other manufacturers not yet following suit?
The Apple iPhone 12 Mini is almost the small shell of the iPhone 12. In fact, thanks to the compact 5.4-inch Super Retina XDR OLED screen, it has a clearer display in terms of pixel density. At its core is the A14 Bionic chip, which powers the entire iPhone 12 series. The two 12MP cameras on the back (primary and OIS and UltraWide) offer the best performance in a variety of lighting conditions and can also capture some great video. Run the latest iOS 14 and expect new OS updates for at least four more years.

Apple iPhone 11
Mid variant of Apple iPhone 11 (Review) With this budget, you can comfortably purchase 128GB of storage. It is powered by Apple’s previous generation A13 bionic chip, which is still powerful enough. The 6.1-inch Liquid Retina IPS LCD display with a typical 326 PPI pixel density found on most iPhones has a scratch-resistant glass and oleophobic coating. Like the iPhone 12 Mini, this phone is IP68 rated dust and water resistant.
There is a dual 12MP camera on the back. The main camera supports OIS and the second camera can capture ultra-wide shots. Needless to say, camera performance is top notch, as you would expect from an Apple smartphone. There is also a 12MP camera on the front for selfies and FaceTime. The 3,110 mAh battery lasts for a day with moderate use and supports 18W fast charging and Qi wireless charging. Apple iPhone 11 will be available on iOS 13 and can be upgraded to the new iOS 14.

Amazon India offers a discount of Rs 4,000 (at the time of writing) OnePlus 9 (Review)Effectively make it a decent deal with Rs50,999. The OnePlus 9 features a 6.55-inch Full HD + fluid AMOLED display that is HDR10 + compliant with a refresh rate of 120Hz. The phone has an elegant design with a glass body that is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back.
The rear camera division isn’t as stacked as the Pro variant, but you can still get Hasselblad color calibration here. Photos are processed by a 48 MP primary camera, a 50 MP ultra-wide camera with autofocus (one of the best ultra-wide cameras around), and a 2 MP monaural camera. The camera can take some impressive images in natural colors and in different lighting conditions. There is a 16MP front camera in a small punch hole at the top of the screen to handle selfies and video calls.
The 5G-enabled OnePlus 9 is powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 888 chip, and with this budget you can get a 12GB RAM variant with 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. Its 4500mAh battery can be used comfortably for more than a day with moderate use, and what’s even better is that the bundled 65W warp charger can be fully charged in about 30 minutes. The phone runs Oxygen OS 11 based on Android 11.

The price of Samsung Galaxy Note 20 was below 60,000 rupees. It is equipped with a 6.7-inch Full HD + Super AMOLED Plus display that complies with HDR10 +. Powered by the Exynos 990 chip, it’s powerful enough to work at its best. And then there’s the famous S-Pen, which is an outstanding feature of all Samsung Galaxy Note series phones, and now there are lots of new tricks on its sleeves. The Note 20 is bundled with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. I launched it on Android 10, but I can upgrade to Android 11 using Samsung’s One UI3.
There are three cameras on the back. A 12MP primary camera with OIS, a 12MP ultra-wide angle camera, and a 64MP telephoto camera with OIS that offers a 3x hybrid zoom. The performance of the camera is excellent, and the details and accurate colors of the images captured in different modes are very good. The phone can also record high quality video with resolutions up to 8K. The 4,300 mAh battery keeps the phone running for more than a day with moderate use. Did you say the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is IP68 rated dustproof and waterproof?

The phone is powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 888 SoC and boasts a 6.78-inch Full HD + 10-bit AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 144Hz and HDR10 + compliant.
The rear camera division consists of a 64 MP primary camera, a 13 MP ultra-wide shooter, and a 5 MP macro camera. This phone is primarily intended for mobile gamers, but the camera is not a pushover. The Asus ROG Phone 5 features a huge 6,000 mAh battery for long, uninterrupted gaming sessions, and the bundled 65W quick charger can charge a large battery in less than an hour.
