Lenovo Reveals The Vibe S1, A Selfie Phone With Dual Front Cameras

Rounding out Lenovo’s Vibe series announced Wednesday, the Vibe S1 is tailored to selfie enthusiasts with dual front cameras. In addition to the 8MP primary front camera, the Vibe S1 features a secondary 2MP camera to add depth to your selfies. Incidentally, the rear camera is 13MP in case you want to add a few non-selfies to your gallery.

The Vibe S1 packs a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek MT6752 processor and a 5-inch 1080p display for showing off your depth-enhanced selfies. The phone flaunts an aluminum frame and a Gorilla Glass 3 front panel. Unfortunately, the Vibe S1 apparently bumps the Android version down to 5.0 from the P1 and P1m’s 5.1. Other features described by Lenovo are as follows:

  • Smartphone with dual front-facing cameras for crisp images and advanced depth of field for unprecedented creative background options, including background blur, background swap and improved low-light results
  • More balanced color tones with Dual-LED flash to optimize color tones based on ambient lighting brightness and temperature

  • Compatible with the VIBE Xtension™ Selfie Flash for an even better selfie photo
