OPPO A16k Specifications:
Design: Thin and Light with Three Beautiful Color Options
OPPO A16k is sleek and light, measuring just 7.85 mm in thickness and weighing only 175g and comes in two stylish color finishes – Black and an all-new refreshing Blue. In addition, the A16k is also a delight to hold, with a 3D back cover that provides a smooth and comfortable grip.
On the front of the phone, OPPO A16k features a large 6.52-inch HD+ display for expanded viewing. The display is fitted with All-day Eye Care – a series of features comprising Sunlight Display, Moonlight Display and AI Smart Backlight that help ensure a healthier and more comfortable visual experience throughout the day.
Experience: Longer and Smoother
The OPPO A16k includes a series of hardware and software upgrades that provide a smoother and more efficient user experience all-round. Powered by the MediaTek Helio G35 SoC, and further enhanced by System Booster – a suit of system-level optimizations, A16k always delivers smooth performance. With the inclusion of a large 4230mAh battery paired with a suit of charging features, including Super Nighttime Standby, Optimized Night Charging, and Super Power Saving Mode, A16k keeps users charged all-day, while ensuring a safe and convenient charging experience.
Tying this powerful hardware together and maximizing its performance is the new ColorOS11.1. Offering efficiency, convenience, privacy, and safety, ColorOS 11.1 includes features such as FlexDrop, Three-finger Translate, and Freeform Screenshot to help improve productivity at work. Meanwhile, features such as Private Safe and All-scenarios SOS protect user safety and privacy. For those who want to enjoy music or videos in the background while working or playing on the phone, the new Background Stream provides a more immersive experience with no interruptions.
Designed to keep up with the demands of daily life, the entire phone is manufactured to be waterproof and comes certified with an IPX4 rating. It has also been tested for durability by being put through a series of stringent quality tests, making sure that it can stand up to the demands of long-term use. Thanks to the newly added graphite sheet heatsinks, heat dissipation on A16k has also been improved, preventing the phone from overheating while streaming videos or gaming for extended periods of time.
Camera: Natural, Beautiful Photos and Videos in any Situation
When it comes to imaging, OPPO A16k includes a 13MP rear main camera, together with several upgraded features to help capture stunning images in a variety of different situations. Backlit HDR can retain rich details in shots taken under backlit and low-light environments, while Dazzle Color Mode can automatically identify the scene to restore the original brightness and colour of the image. Three newly introduced night filters also help users capture city nightscapes with different styles, and both the front and rear cameras of the phone are equipped with OPPO’s AI beautification features for more natural and vivid portraits.
Once users have captured the perfect image, creative post-production tools such as AI Palette – which can transform images into the style of popular reference images with one click – and SoLoop – OPPO’s easy-to-use, smart video editor – are on hand to realize users’ unique creative styles.
OPPO A16k is available at all OPPO Kenya brand stores and e-commerce platforms Jumia, Kilimall and Sky.Garden.
