Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE could make its way to Sprint this month [UPDATED]Alex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
The name "Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE" first popped up on our radar in August, when a report claimed that that was the retail moniker of the Sprint-bound SPH-L300 that's leaked a couple of times in the past. Now the Galaxy Victory is back in the news thanks to a pair of leaks sent to Android Central. According to an internal Sprint document leaked to the site, the employees of the Now Network will earn $3 for every Victory they sell in September either as a new activation or upgrade. Considering that the phone has to be launched for them to sell them and earn the bonus, it seems likely that the GalVic will be hitting Sprint's shelves sometime in September.
Along with this Sprint doc, another Android Central source passed along a few of the Galaxy Victory's spec details. The list includes a 4-inch display, Android 4.0 beneath Samsung's TouchWiz skin, NFC (with support for S Beam and Google Wallet) and 4G LTE connectivity. Those features line up with previous leaks when the phone was known as the SPH-L300. Those reports also claimed that the Victory/SPH-L300 will feature a screen resolution of 800x480, 5-megapixel camera and 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor. Overall it sounds like the Galaxy Victory ought to slot into Sprint's mid-range Android lineup upon launch. Now we just need to know how much Sprint plans to charge for the thing. Once that tidbit comes out, we'll let you know.
UPDATE: Android Central has gotten hold of some more Sprint documents relating the Galaxy Victory. This time we've got some training documents showing some renders of the Victory and confirming its full spec list, including the 4-inch 800x480 display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.0.4 as well as 5-megapixel rear and 1.3-megapixel front cameras. There's still no word on exactly when the Victory will be launching on how much it'll cost when it does, but hey, at least we know what makes the thing tick.
