Chinese smartphone brand Lenovo, which launched the budget flagship K3 Note in March, is now reportedly set to release a new flagship featuring dual cameras in the front. This handset is said to be the Vibe S1 that had surfaced via leaked images earlier in the year.
Lenovo's purported Vibe S1 could hold the distinction of being the first smartphone in the world to offer dual selfie cameras. Known technology tipster Upleaks, via Twitter, has stated that the Vibe S1 handset will indeed feature two cameras in the front, without revealing the exact key technical specs that the smartphone could feature.
However, earlier leaks have hinted at possible key hardware aspects of Lenovo Vibe S1. This smartphone has also succeeded in obtaining a Tenaa certification in China, as per a report published in PhoneArena. This could indicate that the device would be available in China first before expanding to other parts of the world.
