LG teased its V40 ThinQ on Thursday, emphasizing its five cameras, color options and texture, even though it's not due for a full reveal until next Wednesday.

The successor to the LG V30 has three cameras on the back and two on its front, though only the former can be seen in the teaser video.

It's the same width as the V30 -- 2.97 inches -- but its bezel is reduced and the screen size has been increased to 6.4 inches, according to LG. It'll be available in Aurora Black, Platinum Gray, Morokan Blue, with Carmine Red replacing Raspberry Rose.

The V40 has been designed to be slim and light enough to be easily held with one hand, the company said.

"The design philosophy behind the LG V40 ThinQ focuses on features that are unique to LG phones such as the FullVision display while introducing subtle elements that emphasize its simple and clean aesthetics," said Lee Jung-hoon, head of design at LG Electronics' Mobile Communications Company. 

"We wanted customers to be pleasantly surprised by the feel of the LG V40 ThinQ when they first hold it in their hands."

LG's video doesn't show the front of the V40, but VentureBeat's Evan Blass on Wednesday tweeted a shot of a purported AT&T-branded one that fully reveals the phone.

Check back on Oct. 3 for all the details on LG's V40 ThinQ.
