Samsung and Sprint have officially announced another Android smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE, a new handset aimed at budget-conscious consumers. The Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE will be available on Sprint's Now Network this coming Sunday, Sept. 16, with a $99 price tag after a $50 mail-in rebate. The price is available with a two-year contract with Sprint.
The Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE sports a 4-inch WVGA touch screen with a 800 x 480 pixel resolution, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash, a 1.3-megapixel front facing camera for video chats, a 1.2GHz Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, microSD expansion, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and a 2100mAh battery.
Running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, it also includes Google Wallet, allShare Play, S Beam, and S Voice, among other features. The handset measures 12.7 millimeters in thickness and weighs in at 4.9 ounces.
As the name suggests, the smartphone also offers 4G LTE connectivity, and its launch seems perfectly timed with Sprint's newly announced expansion of its high-speed network in 100 new cities over the coming months.
"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," said David Owens, Sprint's vice president of Product Development. "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."
