This freshly leaked little guy from LG isn’t exactly a marvel of modern design, but word on the street has it making its way to North and South America in the near future. Pogo Flipster* anyone? Apparently positioned as an update to the LG HB620T TV phone, the GM630 maintains the same look and shape but thankfully ditches that annoying little antenna. As far as known specs go, they certainly aren’t going to knock you out of your seat: GSM/GPRS/EDGE, Bluetooth, FM radio, microSD slot, 2 megapixel camera and, of course, TV accessible via a dedicated button. Assuming it does in fact hit the US and it falls into the very affordable category, we can see some people snagging one as a cheap option for a MediaFLO-ready handset. Not any of you of course, but some people. Hit the jump for a few more shots.

*Two points if you knew what that was without looking it up.
