Korean Samsung SM-G900L shows up with 5.1-inch 1080p display and Android KitKat. Is this a Galaxy S5?

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)?

Most *probably*, we shall see Samsung showing 2 different version of S5 - a premium model, and another not-so-premium version. My view is that the FHD is for regular GS5, whereas QHD will be used for premium version. All rumours and speculation at this time!

Over 1080p or 2k in 5" it's insane imho. Better to improve image quality and daylight ability, viewing angles, thinness, weight, responsiveness, accuracy, etc.
