Lenovo has launched the all new Vibe S1 in India which was announced at the IFA 2015 event. The phone comes at a price tag of Rs. 15,999 and will be sold exclusively on Amazon.in for now.
As per Lenovo, they have put in some great amount of work into designing and building the phone. The phone has a metallic frame which makes the phone sturdy and the phone is further furnished with glass on the back as well as front.
The phone has a 5 inch 1080p display and is powered by 1.7GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6752 and supported by 3GB RAM which is slowly becoming a standard in the mid-range smartphones. It has an internal storage of 32 GB and can be further expanded up to 128 GB.
The Lenovo Vibe S1 rocks a 13MP rear primary camera and an 8MP front shooter for selfies maniacs. The phone is fueled by 2500 mAh battery which is non-removable. The phone is 4G and hence you can use 4G networks.
The phone supports dual SIM but only when the micro SD card is not inserted. The hybrid slot in the phone can support either 1 SIM along with a micro SD card or 2 SIMs with no SD card at all. The 32 GB storage should be enough if you want to use two SIM cards at once.
The phone is available in Pearl White and Midnight Blue colours and will be available at Amazon.in for Rs. 15,999. The phone seems a good buy for the price tag and hopefully Lenovo will be rolling out further updates for the phone in order to update it to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
