Lenovo Vibe S1 with World’s First Dual Front Facing Cameras Announced



The Lenovo Vibe S1, which is expected to launch at MWC 2015 has been postponed with no reason mentioned. Now the device is finally unveiled at the IFA 2015. The Vibe S1 is highly recommended for Selfies lovers because of its dual Selfies cameras, this is the world’s first smartphone with dual front cameras.

The Vibe S1 will be featuring a dual front camera setup which includes 8MP sensor and a 2MP sensor. With the dual camera setup, you can get DSLR-like ‘Depth of Feild’ effet. The Honor 6 Plus sports a dual 8MP sensors while the Xolo Black came with 13MP + 2MP sensors. We also expect the Vibe S1 to feature both the front camera with 8MP sensors, but it is not confirmed.

We have seen major improvements when coming to the front camera on smartphones. Sony is the first major manufacturer to launch a device with front facing LED flash, and now Samsung Galaxy J series of smartphones has the same feature, the recently launched Galaxy J5 and J7 sports an LED flash on the front. There are smartphones with 13MP front camera like Zenfone Selfie.

“Selfies are now the most popular type of photos snapped on a smartphone, with over a million selfies taken a day and 48% of that are shared on Facebook alone,” said Jerry Hsiao, Vice President of Lenovo. He also added “People expect more from their smartphones today. Capturing precious moments alone or with friends and family is not enough anymore. They want their selfies to stand out in their social media circles. We carefully listened to the consumers’ desires and designed the VIBE S1 based on those insights.”
