The OPPO A16s has been introduced and it’s pretty much the same as the initial A16 model, with only one new inclusion.

Unlike the A16, the OPPO A16s come with NFC onboard. Other than that, nothing else is new. It’s still powered by a MediaTek Helio G35 octa-core processor, a large 6.52-inch HD+ display, and a generous 5,000mAh battery like what other entry-level phones have.


Around the back, we have a triple camera setup led by a 13-megapixel main shooter, 2-megapixel macro lens, and 2-megapixel depth sensor. Sadly, no ultra-wide.

Sitting on a waterdrop notch is an 8-megapixel selfie camera. We then have the fingerprint scanner doubling as the lock/power switch on the side for a cleaner look.


The OPPO A16s has a price of EUR149 (around Php8,900). It is now available in the Netherlands while the release in outer markets is yet to be announced. If you don’t care about NFC, you can settle with the vanilla A16, which is available in the Philippines for Php7,999.
