Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE now available at Virgin Mobile too, yours for $299.99 sans contract
The Samsung Galaxy Victory has been available at Sprint since September. Now though, the Now Network has decided to send it to one of its prepaid brands as well – namely Virgin Mobile.
So the Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE (the full official name) can now be grabbed from Virgin’s website. It’s only available online at this moment. It’s expected to hit brick-and-mortar outlets in mid-March.
The Galaxy Victory is being offered by Virgin for $299.99 (excluding taxes), obviously without the need to sign a long-term contract. Interestingly, the Virgin variant of the phone runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box (Sprint’s comes with version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich). This probably means that an update to Android 4.1 for Sprint’s Galaxy Victory should be coming soon.
Otherwise, this is the exact same device. It has a 4-inch 480×800 touchscreen, a 5 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 1.3 MP front camera, a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, NFC, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
Virgin’s unlimited data and messaging plans start at $35 per month, and the Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE can be effortlessly paired with them.
