Lenovo has launched its new smartphone the Vibe S1 priced at Rs 15,999 at an event in New Delhi. The Vibe S1 is a mid range phone from Lenovo and the highlight of this phone is the dual front camera setup. The Vibe S1 is fitted with a 5-inch FHD display and is powered by the 1.7GHz octa-core 64-bit MediaTek MT6752 CPU paired with 3GB of RAM.
On the storage front, the Vibe S1 offers 32GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot. The Vibe S1 comes with a dual front camera setup, made up of a 8-Megapixel sensor and a 2-Megapixel senor which will work in tandem just like the dual camera setup found on the likes of HTC One M8. As expected, the 2-Megapixel sensor will be used to add the depth to the photographs while the 8-Megapixel sensor will still perform the primary task of capturing photos. The primary camera shapes up in the form of a 13-Megapixel sensor which comes accompanied with a dual tone LED flash.
The camera app is said to offer an option to blur the background of the image along with a slew of filters to further beautify your pictures. It’s pretty clear that Lenovo is targeting the eve growing selfie crowd with the Vibe S1. The ability to crop out the selfie and add it to any background is a testimony to this fact.
The Lenovo Vibe S1 comes clad in aluminum finish cordoned off by a glossy chrome strip running across the periphery of the device. The back is slightly curved (Motorola effect?) and has Corning Gorilla glass protection all around. The Vibe S1 comes in 2 colors – pearl white and midnight blue. From our little usage, the blue looks gorgeous, but is a fingerprint magnet, thanks to glass all around. The Vibe S1 is backed up by a 2,420mAh battery and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop wrapped in the company’s Vibe UI.
The Lenovo Vibe S1 is priced at Rs 15,999 and interestingly, will be available from Amazon.in starting midnight tonight. This is the first time ever Lenovo has moved to Amazon from Flipkart for an exclusive launch.
