    We aren't sure what to make of this one. We already know that at least a couple of different versions of the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be made. Samsung said as much themselves. They indicated that an Exynos version would be coming for markets which don't have very much LTE availability. However, as far as we knew this version would only differ by the processor and the radios on-board. However, a new benchmark has appeared on the web of a Galaxy S5 with an Exynos processor, which also has a slightly different size screen than the officially announced version.

    This version which showed up in the benchmarks has the model number SM-G900H, and includes the new Exynos 5422 processor that Samsung announced at MWC. It also happens to include a 5.2-inch 1080p display. Why would Sammy release another Galaxy S5 which has a very slightly larger screen than their other versions? Why not simply make them all the 5.2 inch display? We could possibly understand it if it were the previously rumored Quad-HD (2K) Display, but it isn't. This once tops out at only 1080p. What gives Sammy?

    Of course, it is possible this is either a fake or a prototype which won't see the light of day. We will keep an eye on this simply to solve the mystery...

    It's probably one of their prototypes that won't see the light of day.
