It's been less than a month since Lenovo launched the high-capacity-battery-based Vibe P1 series phones. The company is now reportedly getting ready to release the camera-oriented Vibe S1 in India.
Lenovo India has opened the dedicated Vibe S1 series page with a "Coming Soon" caption hinting that the device's launch is just around the corner. If sources of BGR India are to be believed, the new Vibe S1 will be launched in India in November, but the details regarding the price of the device are still under wraps.
For the uninitiated, Lenovo Vibe S1 was originally unveiled at IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin) 2015 in Germany; it is now set for launch in India soon.
One of the key attributes of the Lenovo Vibe S1 is its front camera. It boasts not one but two snappers — an an 8MP primary camera with BSI sensor and f/2.2 aperture, which is said to capture high-quality selfies, while the secondary 2MP snapper will analyse the depth of field. It provides detailed information of a scene so users can re-focus objects on the photos using editing tools.
On the rear side, Vibe S1 houses an equally impressive 13MP camera. It also features dual-tone LED flash, PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus) and a BSI sensor.
Other notable features of the Lenovo Vibe S1 include 5.0-inch full-HD display, Gorilla Glass 3 shield (front and back), aluminium frame around the edge to provide firm grip, 64-bit MediaTek processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB inbuilt storage and a 2,420mAh battery that can run the phone for close to 11 days in standby mode.
