Lenovo Vibe S1 Comes With a Dual Front Camera Setup

The smartphone market right now is so ambiguous that all it needs is one special feature to distinguish yourself from others. The new Lenovo phones do exactly that.

The Vibe S1 uses the selfie-boom totally to its advantage. While others like Sony improve sensors and even add front-facing flashes, this phone puts not one, but two cameras above the front panel.

If you’ve followed the industry for long you’ve probably guessed why. Lenovo uses the same refocusing technique which HTC used for its One (M8) flagship couple of years back. As a result, the regular 8 megapixel camera takes your photo, while the second 2 megapixel camera measures the depth of field vision to replicate human binocular vision. You can also get a plugin flash accessory for selfies in low light conditions.

There are a few photo modes built-in for you to mess with. ‘Blur’ allows you to refocus anywhere on your selfie (up to 3 focal plains). ‘Bokeh’ allows you to stylize or edit your selfies. ‘Cut Out’ allows you to make a collage or crop and place your photo with any modified back. You can also get better Night Vision thanks to the combination.

The rest of the phone is quite acceptable by today’s standards. The front, in case you think we forgot, also comes with a 5” display with Full HD resolution. The phone just has a 7.8mm thickness with a 132g weight.

Under the hood, you get a MediaTek octa-core processor with an impressive 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage, which is expandable. The back also has a 13 megapixel BSI sensor. You get 4G LTE for connectivity.

Not much else is announced about the phone. Pricing is set at $299. It will be available in two colors in November.
