Samsung's Galaxy S5 might soon have a complement that could appeal to those who are looking for a slightly different device design.

Samsung on Tuesday accidentally posted a new Galaxy S5 design that comes with more colors and a smaller footprint, according to @EvLeaks, which posted a screenshot on its Twitter feed. The screen shot calls the device the Galaxy S5 Dx., and comes in a wide range of colors, including green and gold.

Rumors have been swirling for weeks that Samsung is working on new versions of its Galaxy S5. The first could be the Prime, which is believed to come with a higher-resolution display than the current handset. The long-rumored Galaxy S5 mini will reportedly feature a 4.5-inch display and come with a lower screen resolution than the regular Galaxy S5 to appeal to those customers on a budget.

For its part, Samsung hasn't said what it has planned for future device launches, and the Galaxy S5 Mini has since been removed from the the company's site.

CNET has contacted Samsung for comment. We will update this story when we have more information.
