The OPPO A series phone that we spotted more than a week ago has gone official in the Philippines.
The OPPO A16 version with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage is now available in the Philippines for P6,999 (roughly $140). It’s listed as “exclusive first on Shopee,” but OPPO hasn’t announced when the handset will be rolled out to other platforms.
Recall that the OPPO A16 was initially launched in the country almost three weeks ago with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Obviously, that variant is more expensive, priced at P7,999 ($160). If you’ve been eyeing the smartphone, but you are short on budget, then the new version may be the one for you.
That’s the only difference between the two. With the cheaper A16, you still get a large battery rated at 5,000mAh that can be charged via a USB-C port and offers modes such as Super Nighttime Standby and Super Power Saving. The screen still measures 6.52 inches and has a 60Hz refresh rate.
Other features include triple 13-megapixel rear and 8-megapixel front cameras, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, and Android 11 layered with ColorOS 11.
For other phone options from the brand, you can always check out Shopee Gadget Zone’s Tech Thursdays, where OPPO is offering up to 48% off all its devices.
