The OPPO A16k is powered by the MediaTek Helio G35 SoC, and a large 4230mAh battery and runs on the new ColorOS11.1. The entire phone is manufactured to be waterproof and comes certified with an IPX4 rating.

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 color of the image.

OPPO A55 Specifications:


OPPO A55’s design captivates, especially once combined with the available colour options. For instance, Rainbow Blue, a new turquoise-like base color made up of particles uniformly arranged into a pyramid that shifts from a blue gradient to silver, and dynamically refracts a dazzling kaleidoscope of rainbow colors akin to the Milky Way. Users can also opt for an elegant Starry Black, featuring OPPO Glow Design, with specks of triangular crystals that scintillate like stars in the night sky.

Beyond just the colors, OPPO A55’s 3D curved design makes for an Ultra Exquisite Design. This starts with a grip that comfortably nestles in the palm of one’s hands thanks to a Thinner Middle Frame. The battery cover is enhanced with a faux metal texture and the weight is only 193g and encircled by an aluminum alloy decorative ring that resists bending. Designed for superior ergonomics is Side Fingerprint Unlock, embedded on the power button, while the AI Face Unlock mechanism gives users the choice between two convenient ways to unlock the phone.


OPPO A55’s AI Triple HD Cameras, which includes a True 50MP AI Camera, 2MP Bokeh Camera and 2MP Macro Camera, stand out with a Dual Main-Camera Design that uses CD-patterned decorative rings giving off the guise of a high-end smartphone.

The 50MP AI Camera itself is dynamic with pixel binning technology. However, in lieu of capturing 50MP shots by default, users can output 12.5MP photos as it captures brighter photos and saves storage space. The 2MP bokeh camera captures beautiful and precise portrait shots. Even at night, OPPO A55 ensures clear shots of the subject in the photo, while preserving the background details with Backlight HDR, while Night Mode adjusts the exposure in dim environments.

The front 16MP Selfie Camera is designed to capture naturally beautiful selfies, thanks to AI Beautification. When in need of a source of light, OPPO A55’s 360° Fill Light offers a fun and interactive way to capture a clear selfie in dim environments by illuminating the display and using this as a light source.


Users will enjoy a battery life that can make phone calls for 29.79 hours, and play music for 24.40 hours straight thanks to the A55’s 5,000mAh battery. In those moments when OPPO A55 is nearly depleted of its battery life, 18W Fast Charge offers a 9V2A fast charging solution that can replenish the phone 33% in only 30 minutes. With Optimized Night Charging OPPO A55 learns the user’s sleep patterns and schedules a nighttime charging plan exclusively. OPPO A55 is enhanced with IPX4 Splash-Waterproof and Short Circuit Protection.

OPPO A55’s large battery powers an Octa-core processor and offers a large storage capacity and memory at 4GB RAM + 128GB ROM. In addition, A55 offers Dual SIM Standby and a Micro SD card slot that can expand storage to 256GB. OPPO A55 features a large 6.51-inch Punch-Hole Display for an immersive user experience.

Market Availability

Both devices, OPPO A16k and OPPO A55, are available at all OPPO Kenya brand stores and e-commerce platforms Jumia, Kilimall and Sky.Garden.
