Lenovo VIBE S1 takes selfies to the next level
Lenovo today announced the launch of the 5.0” Lenovo VIBE S1, a unique smartphone with two front cameras and an attractive curved-glass back design available in two color options. This latest addition to the VIBE family combines the ability to take really creative selfies with a fashionable exterior.
Jerry Hsiao, Vice President of Lenovo Phone Product Management & Operations ” “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. ”
The VIBE S1 is truly unique because of its dual selfie cameras – the 8MP primary front camera takes the sharpest photos and a 2MP secondary front camera analyzes depth of field information to replicate human binocular vision. These two cameras work in tandem to unleash a myriad of new possibilities that can give selfies a creative twist.
After taking a selfie with both cameras, there are various options to modify the selfie by selecting from a number of built-in photo editing tools. ‘Blur’ allows refocusing anywhere on the seflie (up to 3 focal plains) or adding a ‘bokeh’ effect to the background to stylize a selfie or simply to get rid of a photo bomber. With ‘Cut Out’, people can be cropped out of a selfie and then placed on any other image (from a wide selection preloaded on the VIBE S1 or downloaded from the internet), and even on a photo taken with the rear camera of the VIBE S1 smartphone. No matter where the selfie is taken, the person in it can be cut out and placed in front of the Eifel Tower or the Taj Mahal for instance.
The VIBE S1 does not compromise on performance. Powered by a 64-bit MediaTek Octa-Core processor and 3GB of RAM, it is capable of breezing through any task. With 160GB of storage (with up to 128GB of microSD external storage support), the VIBE S1 can easily accommodate around 40,000 photographs. It comes preloaded with an Android™ 5.0 (Lollipop) operating system. Users can view their selfies and photos on a vivid 5.0” Full HD display and easily share all their photos stored on the VIBE S1 with Lenovo’s star SHAREit app which comes preloaded.
