I have been looking through the ROMs and such and trying to find something that will flash onto my AT&T SGS5, and I see a variety of references to KLTE or some variation of the acronym .

First off, what is KLTE? Is it just another way of saying 4G LTE Based phones, or is there other meaning behind it.

Second, I believe that the AT&T SGS5 is called the GM-G900A. What is the difference between the different identifiers that are all GM-G900(X). Is there only a carrier difference, or is there any hardware differences?

Bit mystified, isn't it? Any idea where it'd come from?

I guess it's called KLTE because it's shorter than Qualcomm Long Term Evolution.

Well, okay, that bit makes sense. But then it would be LTE, rather than KLTE. (On top of which I've also heard reference to HLTE)
Is this just another Kang thing? (Such as AOKP versus AOSP?)

Conversely, is there a term for those SGS5 devices that are not KLTE? ("International", maybe?)

The KLTE = All S5's that are based on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 801 chipset (including the "International").
K stands for Krait, which is the name of the CPU.
Afaik there is only one octa-core Exynos based model and it's called SM-G900H.

A small update:
klte = SM-G900F (International/European)
kltespr = klte sprint
klteusc = klte us cellular
kltevzw = klte verizon wireless
