OPPO A55 and OPPO A16k Comes to Kenya,Price from KES 20000


OPPO has revealed the availability of two smartphones for the Kenya market: the A16K and the A55.

The phones, which are under the A series lineup, are targeting customers who have a budget of KES 20K to KES 25K. That is the lower midrange section, which features phones that are substantially better than what you would get in a budget smartphone.

The phones ship with ColorOS11, which is OPPO’s feature-rich skin that makes the experience a whole better than what you would find in vanilla Android.

ColorOS11 implies that the phones are running Android 11.

OPPO hasn’t said when the phones will be updated to ColorOS12.

The screens are capped at HD+, although we would have loved a FHD+ panel for the pricier model.
