The Lenovo Vibe S1, the very first phone with a dual front-camera, has been formally unveiled. The phone will give you a fresh start in the selfie world, offering a lot of cool effects and changing the way you snap pictures.
The Vibe S1 features an 8-megapixel along with a 2-megapixel camera facing the front, both working together when you shoot selfies. While the 8-megapixel unit is the key driver for the pictures, the secondary 2MP snapper gives them a sense of depth. It may be used to include a ‘bokeh’ blurry background effect, dispose of a ‘photo bomber’ or to completely replace the background of a selfie.
The Lenovo Vibe S1 is a reasonably typical Android phone with an affordable price tag. Here are a few notable specs:
- 5.0-inch Full HD Screen (1920×1080 pixel)
- 13-megapixel BSI rear facing camera
- 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage (up to 128GB)
- Android 5.0 (Lollipop)
- Octa-core MediaTek Processor
- 4G LTE connectivity
- 7.8mm thickness, 4.66oz (132g) weight
The Lenovo Vibe S1 will be available for purchase in multiple markets at the retail cost of $299 only. Sadly, however, it is not going to be sold in North America (and will not be accessible in the US).
