A list of model numbers for the Samsung Galaxy S5 variants have emerged, giving anxious fans just a little bit more to chew on. If you’re the type of person who likes to dig through every little detail for upcoming devices then this ought to help you get your fix.

Assuming these are accurate –and we think they are– model numbers, we can maybe look for more bits to surface. You know, stuff like benchmarks and other fun leaks.

It’s not exactly the most exciting stuff, but we are also looking at what’s being billed as the first Galaxy S5 (Verizon) photo sample. While evleaks suggests it points to a 16-megapixel experience, it may also end up at 21-megapixels.

The original image’s 5,312×2,988 pixel count works out to a 16:9 aspect ratio, but as Unwired View reminds us, the full height of a sensor is not used. When adjusting for a 4:3 ratio the image turns out to be roughly 21-megapixels. Incidentally, this resolution has been rumored for the Galaxy S5 a time or two.
