Initially launched alongside the Lenovo A7000 at MWC this year, the Lenovo Vibe Shot’s highlight is its 16-megapixel rear camera with a six-piece modular lens, BSI sensor, and a tri-colour LED flash. The camera has a full-frame 16:9 low-light sensor for shooting images in low lighting as well as dark interiors or at night. The company at the global launch had claimed that the infrared autofocus feature in the Vibe Shot focuses more accurately at speeds 2x faster than normal auto focus. There is an 8-megapixel front-facing camera also on board.
