Take a closer look at the liquid metal Turing Phone (pictures)

The Turing Phone is designed to protect your sensitive data from hackers, splashes and falls.

Meet the Turing Phone

Turing Robotics' Turing Phone promises "world-class security" in an nigh-impenetrable liquid metal shell. It's pricey -- starting at $610 (£391, AU$798) unlocked -- and will be available for preorder later this month.

The Turing Phone has a 5.5-inch display, and feels light and solid in the hand.

The phone looks slick, though the "liquidmorphium" frame picks up fingerprints rather readily.

You'll charge the phone by way of Turing's "Wallaby Magstream" magnetic charging cable.

The Wallaby Magstream looks a lot like Apple's MagSafe 2 charging cable.

The volume controls sit on the right side of the phone. The phone's rear plate isn't actually removable -- this particular prototype has seen a bit of wear and tear.

I'm not really a fan of the logo but the chassis looks rather slick, overall.

The phone is available in Beowulf (left), Pharaoh (center), and Cardinal (right). I'm partial to Cardinal, myself.

There's a 13-megapixel shooter on the rear, and an 8-megapixel camera for selfies up front.

The designs are all fairly funky, but the model you pick determines the highlights.

We only got to see an interactive mockup of the Turing UI. The phones currently run Android 5.1 Lollipop.

We were told that we can expect the phone to run the latest version of Android, in addition to its security-conscious operating system. We'll just need to wait and see how it all plays out.
