LG will launch its unique T-shaped swivelling LG Wing smartphone next week. Ahead of the official launch, key details of LG Wing have continued to leak. A day after a hands-on video of the phone emerged online, leakster Evan Blass (@evleaks) has posted renders of the LG Wing.

The render (paywalled) reveals the phone has many as three large camera sensors housed in a rectangular module on the back. The module also houses an LED flash. The primary screen is also seen without any front-facing camera.

The render also features Qualcomm's 5G chip logo, confirming the phone will come with the latest generation of wireless technology systems. The photo also reveals the phone comes in two colour options. It features ultra-slim bezels, at least on the primary screen.

In case you did not know, LG Wing is going to be the company's first smartphone under a new Explorer Project which aims to “focus solely on new usability that is discovered with innovative designs.” LG has also teamed up with Qualcomm, Rave, Ficto, Tubi and NAVER for the devices set to roll out under this project.

As far as specifications go, LG Wing is rumoured to come with a 6.8-inch main display. The swivelling phone could be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 700-series chipset with support for 5G. LG Wing will have as many as three rear cameras including a 64-megapixel primary sensor.

The phone is likely to come with a steep price tag as well. XDA Developers had reported the phone is going to be priced at $1,000 ( 73,000 approximately). A recent report, however, claims the phone could be priced as high as $1,600 ( 1,17,000 approximately).

LG Wing is scheduled to be officially unveiled on September 14. The phone is likely to be available in Korea first.
