OPPO A16 and OPPO 16S: Mid Range Smartphones Available in India at Cheap Price
OPPO expands its mid-range portfolio with two mobiles for less than 200 euros: OPPO A16 and OPPO A16S in India are also available at a cheap price. These are two mid-range smartphones with the same characteristics and technical specifications except for one detail: one has NFC and the other does not.
The model with NFC, the OPPO A16S, will be marketed in carriers, while the other is sold in the OPPO online store. So without further ado, let’s review the keys of the OPPO A16 and the OPPO A16S.
Let’s start with the screen: They are 6.52 inches with an eye protection system, it is designed for perfect vision, regardless of the time of day. 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. Furthermore, the OPPO A16 / OPPO A16s make it easy to access with a side fingerprint scanner and face unlock, keeping all your smartphone data safe.
In dimensions and weight, they go very well: they are easy to carry in a pocket and handle with one hand: OPPO A16 and OPPO A16s are designed with 3D curved edges and an ultra-compact structure that measures only 8.4 mm thick and weighing in at only 190 g. They come in two colors, which change slightly when reflecting light: Crystal Black and Pearl Blue, which is black and blue. They have IPX4, which means that they are resistant to water splashes.
OPPO A16 and OPPO 16S: Features
An interesting point in OPPO phones is their camera. In this case, we may be facing two candidates for cheap phones with a good camera, because OPPO A16 and OPPO A16s integrate a 13MP main sensor, combined with a 2MP depth sensor and a 2MP macro camera.
Thanks to the depth camera they can offer good photos with blurred backgrounds with a bokeh effect. In addition, with the ultra-clear 8 MP front camera, users will be able to capture their own stories, be it with selfies on a trip or sharing special moments with friends.
As we know that innovation in photography is one of OPPO’s bets, despite being an entry range they offer software improvements supported by Artificial Intelligence in these mobiles: the Dazzle Color mode with artificial intelligence technology offers the possibility of improving the result with an automatic change of color saturation and contrast ratio.
In addition, both OPPO A16 and OPPO A16s come with various filters, ideal for taking perfect photos without needing further editing. Inside we find the MKT Helio G35 processor accompanied by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage memory, expandable with microSD up to 256GB.
The autonomy for the whole day seems guaranteed in OPPO A16 and OPPO A16s with its 5000 mAh battery with various optimization functions. They have a 10W load. They have Dual SIM. As for the operating system, we have OPPO’s ColorOS11.1 customization layer, based on Android 11.
They integrate Bluetooth 5.0 / A-GPS, BeiDou, GLONASS, GALILEO, and QZSS. The model with NFC is sold in operators, while in the OPPO store you find the model without this form of connection. Undoubtedly, two good proposals for those looking for terminals with an adjusted price but interesting specifications.
