The setup on the Vibe S1 includes an 8-megapixel snapper with f/2.2 aperture to capture images, and a 2-megapixel snapper that analyzes the depth-of-field. Together the cameras work to capture photos with DSLR-like bokeh effects, and also let users change the focus of the photo and also swap backgrounds.
