The long rumored Lenovo Vibe S1 has finally managed to see the light of the day. We had learned recently that this device could ship with two selfie cameras onboard, and those rumors have turned out to be true. It has been launched by the company alongside the new Vibe P1 and P1m handsets which are focused on offering long battery lives.
While we’ve seen devices with two rear cameras, the Lenovo Vibe S1 is the first one with two snappers on its front. Meant for enhancing your selfies, this setup includes an 8MP main camera that’s assisted by a depth-sensing 2MP unit. These units are aimed at replicating ‘human binocular vision,’ according to the company. They work together to offer various functions like deciding where to focus after the image has been clicked, achieving a ‘bokeh’ effect in the background and even the facility to cut out a person and place them on another photograph.
There’s a 13MP rear camera present on this 4G supporting Lenovo device as well. This snapper has been equipped with phase-detection autofocus moreover.
