The new stylish smartphone boasts of a large 5000mAh long-lasting battery, 16.55cm big screen, and a stellar AI triple-camera setup
New Delhi, 20 September 2021: OPPO, the leading global smart device brand, today, 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 20th September.
“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.

The OPPO A16 runs on ColorOS 11.1 over Android 11 and comes with features like FlexDrop, which allows you to keep apps open in full screen as floating windows. Its System Booster reduces lag by 18%. Features such as UI First 3.0 and AI Startup Optimizer make the animation start time for apps more efficient, while Background Freezing and Dex2oat 3.0 allocate resources efficiently to background processes; Athena 3.0 cleans up memory to improve overall performance.
