On the back, we have a camera module housing triple AI cameras system with an LED flash. Also on the back, you will find a capacitive fingerprint sensor and the Itel brand logo, an indicator that this is an Itel smartphone.
There is a significant improvement in the body size of the S16 series smartphones. As it’s much slimmer than its predecessor, the S15. For instance, the S16 Pro is 8.3mm thick, compared to the S15 which is 9.2mm slim. There’s also a 2.5D glass covering and a slight curvature at the end of the glass display. All these give the S16 pro a great aesthetic look.

Itel took great strides in making the Itel S16 Pro more robust. When compared with its predecessor, we have more cameras on the rear module and a higher resolution selfie camera on the front.
The triple rear camera system consists of a 13MP primary camera, a 2MP Macro camera, and a 3.0MP depth camera. For selfies, we now have a 8MP front shooter, the same 8MP camera we saw on the S15 Pro.
This camera system may be nowhere near the most powerful out there, but I can say its a substantial upgrade that will appeal to enthusiasts in search of smartphones within this price range.
