Despite the fact that Lenovo’s smartphones are relatively unknown outside Asia, the giant OEM has released a fair share of unique, interesting takes on the “drab slab” form factor. One example is this year’s Vibe Shot, which looks like a sleek, slender compact digital camera, especially from the rear. One of the other entries in the Vibe series, the Vibe S1, is sure to turn heads, or rather blur them. According to a new leak, the device will include not one, but two front-facing cameras. Take a look at the images that came via certification by the TENNA (think China’s version of the FCC):
Aside from seemingly being the first device in the world to accomplish such a feat, the presumed use is going to be great for group selfies: bokeh.
Prepare for maximum exposure. Specifically of the selfie-sort.
The specs for the phone include a 5-inch Full HD display, an Octa-core 1.7GHz SoC (possibly the Snapdragon 615), 2GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage, microSD support, and a 2420mAh battery. The front camera(s) will be 5-megapixels. It will be sold in blue, violet, pink, black, and white color variants. Other details based on previous rumors of the phone mention a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, Android 5.0, support for 4G, and Dual SIM.
While this story might seem to be news in-and-of-itself, interestingly enough the Vibe S1 was actually leaked months ago. The problem, so to speak, was that no one had given the odd symmetrical circles a second thought. It was only today when a new leaked Tweet that offered the new news came shone light on the issue:
WTF…Lenovo VIBE S1 features Dual Selfie camera…•﹏•

Assuming this all checks out and the phone does indeed have Dual Selfie cameras, would you be interested in it? Does the potential for post-processing your pictures with bokeh have potential? Leave a note in the comments below!
