Oppo A16 features with technical specifications and price

Oppo A16

OPPO continues to care about meeting the needs of its younger audience and does so by bringing the new OPPO A16 , a phone that has a large 6.52 ″ Eye Care screen, long-lasting battery and a triple camera with AI to make the best possible photos.

It is a cheap smartphone that adjusts to somewhat tighter budgets but does not give up offering essential features for the youngest of the place, such as the possibility of obtaining blurred backgrounds with a bokeh effect or spectacular macro shots of nature, ready to share on networks social.

Features of the new from OPPO

Despite being a cheap mobile, the mobile sports a design adapted to 2021 where the prominence is taken by a screen with a notch in the form of a drop of water that allows you to focus on the content without interruptions. Thanks to its cell, it offers hours of fun, whether it is sharing videos, browsing social networks or taking photos with your best friends. It is also IPX4 waterproofed and has undergone extensive durability testing to ensure its strength.

Likewise, the OPPO A16 has an ergonomic format that has been developed for a perfect fit in the hand, with 3D curved edges and an ultra-compact structure that measures only 8.4 mm thick and weighs only 190 g.

Special mention to its triple rear camera, equipped with AI tools that make it easier to get high-quality photos without having to adjust the camera.


The 6.52 ”screen is called Eye Care because it has an eye protection system and is designed for perfect vision, regardless of the time of day. Its brightness contributes to this, which adapts depending on whether we have a direct light source or not. With brightness adaptation down to as low as 2 nits, users can enjoy their favorite shows and games in low light or outside in the sun.


Its resolution of 1600 x 720 px allows it to boast a density of 269 dpi and LCD technology that can represent more than 16 million colors. In addition, the device settings make it possible to play with different modes to adjust the color temperature. It has a normal 60Hz refresh rate and 1500: 1 contrast ratio.


Inside the phone, the power is the work of MediaTek‘s Helio G35 processor, launched in 2020 to give life to the mid-range phones from different manufacturers. It has been manufactured under a 12 nm process and has 8 cores that can work at a maximum speed of 2.3 GHz when we perform more demanding tasks. It is accompanied by a Power VR8320 GPU running at 680 MHz which is quite restrained.

As for the memory of the mobile, this OPPO A16 is only sold in a single configuration of 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. Of course, we can expand this memory with MicroSd cards or connect a USB thanks to its compatibility with OTG technology.

The smartphone of the Chinese firm has among its characteristics an optimized cooling system that allows comfortable use, no matter how many applications are open at the same time to prevent the mobile from overheating too much.


The OPPO mobile does not hide too many surprises inside but its camera is easy to define as competent, more for its 13 MP main sensor than for its two extra portrait and macro lenses.


On the one hand we have the 13 MP sensor present in different entry-level models launched on the market in recent months, which has an aperture f / 2.2 and a viewing angle of 80º. Enough to take simple photos automatically as long as we do not demand the same from the mobile phone as those that cost more than 300 euros.

The rest of the lenses are a 2 MP monochrome sensor with f / 2.4 aperture, perfect for capturing black and white photos as well as helping to blur the background of the scene. There is also a 2 MP f / 2.4 macro with which to take close-range shots and highlight hidden details in nature.

In front of the screen we have an 8 MP sensor with f / 2.0 aperture that uses different AI tools to improve the quality of our selfies and self-portraits

At the video level we have the same capabilities with the rear and front lenses, that is, the possibility of recording video in 1080p at 30 fps. Something that is not to shoot rockets.


Economic smartphones like this OPPO A16 stand out, above all, for the battery. It is the cheapest component and therefore these smartphones mount capacities of 5,000 mAh or more, just what we find in the mobile.


There is no data on the autonomy of this power unit but we assume that it can exceed 24 hours of normal use and even take it a little further if at the end of the day we establish some ColorOS energy saving mode.

And it is that the mobile has a super night standby mode, energy saving mode, optimized night charging and intelligent temperature control. This ensures that smartphones use less battery power in standby mode and while in use, as well as being able to charge safely, regardless of the time of day.


ColorOS 11.1 is the operating system that you will find in the bowels of the terminal, a software based on Android 11 that has intuitive features designed for maximum ease of use such as FlexDrop , which allows users to keep applications open in full screen or like floating windows, multitasking comfortably.

In addition, this OPPO A16 also boasts Google Lens OCR, which will allow you to translate different languages instantly while traveling. And with Google Near compatibility, users can easily share photos, videos, and files with close friends with a simple tap.
