The OPPO A18 has an 8MP main camera and a 2MP bokeh camera. The two cameras work in tandem with OPPO’s advanced portrait algorithm to provide impressive bokeh light spots in the background and highlight the subject in Portrait Mode. With the 5MP front camera, the OPPO A18 delivers stunning selfies and enhanced video call quality.
For the battery, the A18 has a 5000 mAh unit that the company says can last for over 12 hours with moderate to heavy use. The battery supports 18W charging.
