Lenovo has officially released the new smartphone dubbed as Vibe S1 in India.

The Lenovo Vibe S1 was originally unveiled way back in August at IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin) 2015 in Germany. 

The main talking point of the Lenovo Vibe S1 is its front-camera. It boasts not one but two snappers — 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, the Vibe S1 houses a 13MP camera. It also features dual-tone LED flash, PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus) and a BSI sensor.

Other note worthy 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 to hands, 64-bit MediaTek processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB inbuilt storage and 2420 mAh battery which can power the phone for close to 11 days under standby mode.

Lenovo Vibe S1 India availability and price details:

The company has confirmed that the new Lenovo Vibe S1 will be exclusively available on Amazon India (HERE) for ₹15,999 from 24 November onwards. Buyers can choose between blue and white colours.
