But on the front Lenovo has packed in not one, but two front facing cameras. One is an 8-megapixel while a second 2-megapixel camera adds more depth and dimension to self-portraits, according to Lenovo.

The Vibe S1 is also a dual-SIM device and has a 2,500mAh battery. It's not removable though -- Lenovo joins many other manufacturers in sealing up their unibody designs.

Like a lot of other selfie cameras, the S1 can be triggered remotely and there's even a physical remote, sold separately of course.

At 5-inches the screen comes in around the average size for most modern phones. It's full high-definition with a 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution.

Just in case you were doubting Lenovo's commitment to the selfie, the S1 comes with a plug in ring flash for that professional look.
