Lenovo today introduced the Vibe S1 Lite, which is basically a “Lite” version of the Vibe S1 selfie-focused smartphone that the company unveiled at IFA last year.
The Vibe S1 Lite features a 5-inch 1080 x 1920 Full HD display with a pixel density of 441 pixels per inch. It is powered by a MediaTek octa-core SoC clocked at 1.3 GHz, coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard memory which can further be expanded by up to 128GB thanks to the include microSD card slot.
On the back, the smartphone is equipped with a 13MP primary shooter featuring phase-detection auto-focus (PDAF) technology and a dual-tone LED flash. Since it too is a selfie-focused offering like the Vibe S1, you get an 8 megapixel selfie shooter with an LED flash. In terms of dimensions, the Vibe S1 lite measures 145 x 71 x 8.5mm and weighs in at 129 grams.
The handset offers 4G LTE support and packs a decent 2700mAh capacity battery inside. On the software front, the handset boots Android 5.1 Lollipop with the company’s custom user-interface layer on top. It is expected to go on sale in the coming weeks in Matte White and Matte Blue color options for $199.99.
