LG patent shows dual-screen phone crossing the lines between the company's V and G series

LG has patented an interesting hybrid design that looks like a combination of both its G and V series of high-end smartphones. It's as if the LG G6 had a secondary display with the front camera in the center, alongside even thinner bezels. It's an interesting visual for sure, even if that dead-center front cam is a little too in-your-face for our liking.
So, is this the LG V30? Hard to say. It will be a bold move for LG to introduce a phone that looks like this, as there's truthfully nothing else out there to remotely resemble this design. And LG is cautious not to be caught being too innovative, because customers don't always warm up to the company's novel, well-intended but sometimes under-polished ideas. The LG G5 is a living example of being unorthodox and overlooked because of this.
But still, there's technically nothing stopping LG from whipping out a handset that redefines the dual-screen phone once more. When Apple launches the next iPhone in the second half of this year, all manufacturers will need the best and most attention-demanding technology they can come up with to compete. If this patent is a clue as to how LG plans to ruffle the industry's feathers in a few months, we're excited!

If it is, I'll be excited. I saw the LG G6 in the T-Mobile store yesterday and I must say, it is BEAUTIFUL. I already thought it was beautiful in photos and videos online, but it is really stunning in person. I was a bit tempted to buy one considering it's been on sale for $500, but I'm more of a media head, and the V-line is that Phablet series that satisfies me as a media head, and curator. If it doesn't bootloop, LG will have a buy for me for the LG V30.

I could be missing something but didn't the V10 have a secondary screen?

G6 is boot-looping... I'll pass, Note 8 and iPhone 8 for me...

Is there any evidence of this? I even did a search on forums and haven't found anyone complaining of boot-looping in regards to the G6. I'm pretty sure they've fixed that issue.

This is similar to a concept video for v30 in youtube but the shortcut buttons is on the bottom of the phone. I read somewhere that the v30 front camera will be with dual lens so I don't suppose that this will be the final design for the next lg flagship.
