Sprint to offer the Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G smartphone
When it comes to naming your devices, it takes a keen eye and brain to figure out what suits the masses and what doesn’t. Keeping things short and sweet is a good mantra to have in mind, so when it comes to naming convention for smartphones, I guess you can say that Apple has gotten the entire exercise down pat. Well, the same cannot be said for Samsung, as Sprint’s latest smartphone offering comes in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G.
Now, the Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G does seem to be quite the mouthful, don’t you think so? Sprint is happy to declare that they are the only carrier to offer “Truly Unlimited” 4G LTE data, text and calling to any mobile, and will offer the Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE at a price that is pocket friendly. We are looking at a 4G LTE handset that will cost less than $100 a pop, where it is even cheaper after a $50 mail-in rebate, all starting from September 16th onwards alongside a new 2-year agreement. .
The Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G will come with the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system right out of the box, alongside a 1.2GHz dual-core processor to keep things running nice and smooth. Apart from that, you will also be able to benefit from a 4-inch touchscreen display as well as enjoy access to the Sprint 4G LTE network.
At the back there is a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash and video capture ability, while the front has a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. Google Wallet support also turns the smartphone into a wallet thanks to Near Field Communication (NFC) integration, helping you make safe purchases at more than 100,000 participating retailers. A 2,100 lithium-Ion battery is said to deliver up to 9 hours talktime, where it is accompanied by 1GB RAM, 4GB ROM and a microSD memory card slot.
David Owens, vice president – Product Development, Sprint, said, “Price is often a barrier for customers who are ready to transition from a feature phone to a smartphone; Samsung Galaxy Victory brings Sprint 4G LTE to the mass market with the high-end features and capabilities of a premium Android smartphone. Priced under $100 and paired with Truly Unlimited data from Sprint, our customers will appreciate the functionality of this device without worrying about costly monthly rate plans or surprises on their wireless bill.”
