Korean Samsung SM-G900L shows up with 5.1-inch 1080p display and Android KitKat. Is this a Galaxy S5?
Earlier this morning we reported about many new Samsung model numbers, all appearing to correspond to different versions of the upcoming Galaxy S5 flagship (for various carriers around the world). Now, another possible S5 variant appeared in Korea, where it’s being listed at the official LG U+ website. In case you don’t know, LG U+ is South Korea’s third-largest mobile operator - and yes, it obviously belongs to LG.

The new Samsung device is the SM-G900L and, according to LG U+, it’s a Galaxy-branded handset that features Android 4.4 KitKat and a 5.1-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels. If these details are correct and the SM-G900 models are all related to the upcoming S5, it means that Samsung won’t jump on the Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) bandwagon just yet.

Sure enough, the LG U+ listing might not be accurate. Or the Galaxy S5 might have a different model number, while the SM-G900 (and all its variations) could be another new handset.

What do our readers think, would the Galaxy S5 disappoint with a 5.1-inch 1080p display? Or is this still enough for a killer smartphone (assuming that the rest of its features are top notch)?
