Not sure who has been waiting for a smartphone like this. But Lenovo certainly thinks some of you would like to have dual Selfie front-facing cameras in your next smartphone, and has announced the Vibe S1 at the ongoing IFA 2015 in Berlin. The phone comes with a curved glass back design to add to the style factor.
Lenovo claims that over a million Selfies are taken every day and almost 48% of those selfies are uploaded to Facebook alone. While others have tried to provide LED flash for the selfie camera, Lenovo has gone with dual front facing cameras promising better experience. the 8MP primary front camera can take sharp images while the 2MP secondary front camera can analyze the depth of field information to create the blur/bokeh effect.
This is pretty similar to what we have seen on the likes of Huawei Honor 6 Plus, HTC One M8, XOLO Black and others, but for selfies. So once you take a selfie, you’ll be allowed to refocus by tapping on an area. Lenovo promises better low light selfies, thanks to the BSI sensor on the primary front camera.
There’s also a 13MP rear camera with phase-detection autofocus and dual-tone flash accompanying it. The Vibe S1 is powered by a 64-bit MediaTek MT6752 Octa-Core processor and 3GB of RAM. There’s 32GB of onboard storage and a microSD slot capable of expanding storage by up to 128GB. The phone runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop with Lenovo’s own Vibe UI on top of it. The Vibe S1 has a 5-inch Full HD display and has dual-4G LTE support. Finally, there’s a 2500mAh battery powering the phone.
Lenovo Vibe S1 will be available in two colors: Pearl White and Midnight Blue, starting November of this year across the globe. Pricing for the model starts at $299
