New Delhi: OPPO, the leading global smart device brand, on Monday, announced the launch of the OPPO A16 in India.
This smartphone boasts a large 16.55cm screen with ‘Eye Care Display’ technology that lets you watch hours of your favourite entertainment without any visual discomfort. Its long-lasting 5000mAh battery ensures more than a day’s use whether you are browsing the internet or capturing life’s best moments with its ultra-clear AI triple-camera set up.
The OPPO A16 is priced at INR 13,990 and will go on sale on Amazon and mainline retail outlets from Sept 20.
“The OPPO A16 balances style with function. Its trendy design makes it flaunt-worthy, while its large battery lets you end the day with power to spare even after a full day of camera use, along with hi-definition video entertainment thrown in for good measure,” said Damyant Singh Khanoria, CMO, OPPO India.
5000 mAh Battery – Power in your hands
With a 100% charge of the OPPO A16’s 5000mAh battery, one can expect up to 34 hours of call time or 21 hours of YouTube video playback. Moreover, its Super Nighttime Standby mode consumes as little as 1.21% power in 8 hours.
For greater safety, the device’s ‘Smart Temperature Control’ monitors the heat that is generated while the device is on charge and reduces the charging current if it is found to be too high.
A large screen for better viewing
The OPPO A16’s 16.55cm HD+ waterdrop LCD screen—with Eye Care mode—allows you to enjoy your favourite entertainment all-day long with its sunlight and moonlight screens that dim and brighten automatically based on your ambient lighting conditions.
With time, its ‘AI Smart Backlighting’ learns about your environmental conditions to provide you with a "customized" smart backlight experience. The Black Screen Mode offered in A16 is especially useful for watching long videos.
By turning your screen black while playing a video, you not only conserve battery, but will also be able to use online video apps to stream music at the same time.
Shoot like a Pro
For the click-happy, the OPPO A16 packs a 13MP main camera with 2MP Depth (Bokeh) and a 2MP Macro snapper. Once you have captured the moment, you can head to the Dazzling Mode to make your shots pop on your Insta feed.
The camera app lets you balance saturation and brightness, adjust the color levels manually, or choose from 15 filters for quick photo post-production.
Its 8MP front camera lets you take clear selfies, while its AI Beautification on both—front and rear—cameras beautify everyone in the shot by adjusting and smoothing skin tones.
The OPPO A16 comes with up to 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, as well as support for a Memory Expansion Card up to 256GB.
The handset supports Dual Sim and Dual Standby so you can switch between two phone numbers. Additionally, Dual Channel Acceleration lets you seamlessly swap between a mobile network and Wi-Fi without interruption.
Moreover, its Idle Time Optimizer auto-analyses the phone for junk files and cleans it up while you’re asleep so your phone can run smoothly the next morning.
The OPPO A16 sports a compact build—163.80mm long, 75.60mm wide, 8.40mm thin—and weighs just 190g. It comes in two colors: Crystal Black and Pearl Blue. Its laser-engraved, vacuum-plated frame comes with a metallic sheen that makes it look premium.
The handset carries an IPX4 splash-proof rating, and each device is put through precision quality tests, including drop, radiation, climate, and signal. It passed 50+ production process controls, 130+ ultra-rigorous reliability, and 320+ experimental tests.
