Itel A16 has just two cameras which are distributed evenly. The one at the back is a 5MP shooter which is accompanied by an LED flash for low light photos. Features of the rear camera include autofocus, panorama and faceID, which is also the only form of biometric unlock on this device.
At the front is the single 2MP shooter, also equipped with an LED flash and can only shoot 360p videos at 30fps.
We have the Mediatek MT6580 SoC on the itel A16 which comes with a Quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz alongside a Mali-400 GPU for games. This is hooked up to 512MB of RAM which runs the android 8.1 Oreo Go Editon. As for your files, there is 8GB of internal storage which can be expanded further, up to 32GB via a microSD card. It has a 2,050mAh with no fast charging.
