Sprint Samsung Galaxy Victory updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

Introduced by Sprint in September 2012 for $99 on contract, now the Samsung Galaxy Victory can be officially updated to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.

The update is done over the air, and doesn’t bring just the new features included in 4.1 Jelly Bean, but also stuff like: Swype, enhanced notifications, indoor walking directions (in Google Maps), Zagat ratings and reviews (also in Google Maps), and conversational text-to-speech voice in U.S. English.

At the moment, Sprint is selling the Victory for $49 on contract. The handset has LTE connectivity, a 4 inch WVGA display, NFC, 1GB of RAM, and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. It’s not clear if it will get Android 4.2 JB, too, but since it’s a dual-core device, it probably will.

A few months ago, the Samsung Galaxy Victory was also released by Virgin Mobile. Fortunately for the MVNO’s customers, Virgin’s version comes with Android Jelly Bean out of the box.
