Acer S59 selfie phone spotted on GFXBench with 5-inch HD screen, octa-core CPU, 13MP cameras

A new handset from Acer is apparently on the way. Called the Acer S59, the phone paid a visit to the GFXBench benchmark site which revealed some of the key specs for the device. For example, the handset will carry a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280. That works out to a pixel density of 294 ppi. Under the hood is the 64-bit MediaTek MT6753 SoC. That comes with an octa-core 1.3GHz CPU and the Mali-T720 GPU.

The Acer S59 features 2GB of RAM inside, along with 16GB of native storage. Both the rear and front-facing cameras weigh in at 13MP and both will take videos in 4K resolution. The unit offers support for 4G LTE (Cat 4), NFC, GPS and Bluetooth 4.0.

With the 13MP front-facing camera, this device will probably be marketed as a selfie phone. There is a chance that we will see the Acer S59 unveiled at IFC in September. At that time, we should get information about pricing and availability.

The results have been removed by GFX, but not before we were able to get a screen grab of the results.
