Victory_4G_LTE25

We've been looking at bits and pieces of info about the Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE over the weekend, and now thanks to an insider we've got the full set of training materials available -- including the full technical specs. The Victory looks to be one very solid phone, and should appeal to folks who want or need something a little smaller than the Galaxy S3 (Galaxy S III) but still expect decent performance. Here's the obligatory bullet point list:

  • CDMA, LTE, 850/900/1800/1900mHz, UMTS dual-band, 1700/2100 mHz
  • 1.2 GHz Dual Core Qualcomm/MSM8960 Lite
  • Dimensions 4.8 x 2.5 x 0.5 (inches)
  • 4.0” WVGA TFT screen at 800 x 480
  • 4GB ROM
  • Up to 1 GB external MicroSD (we assume this is a typo and the phone will support 32GB cards)
  • MicroUSB
  • 3.5mm Headphone jack
  • 3.8v, lithium ion, 2100mAh battery (up to 7 hours talk time; 9 days standby time)
  • Android 4.0.4  Ice Cream Sandwich with TouchWiz
  • Audio codecs: AAC, AMR, AWB, M4A, MID, MP3 OGG, QCP, WAV, WMA
  • Video codecs: DivX, H.263, H.264, MPEG4, RV, WMV
  • 5.0MP camera with 4x zoom and video recording
  • 1.3MP front facing camera
  • Wifi
  • Bluetooth
  • Media Hub
  • Social Hub
  • Accelerometer
  • Spanish language support
  • Hearing aid compatible M4

The materials show this one headed for Sprint as rumored, but also show quad-band GSM support so we expect to see something similar on other networks Of course all the TouchWiz and Ice Cream Sandwich features are on board, like Media Hub and Android Beam. It's safe to say that a scant six months ago these specs would have been at the top of the Android heap, so the Victory should be a great little performer.

Still no exact word on when we'll see this one on Sprint's shelves, but as we saw yesterday reps are training for a September release. Hit the break for the full set of 26 training slides.

Thanks, anon!

2100 mah is plenty of battery for the newer snapdragon chipsets. Lte used to be a seperate chip making it less energy efficient but with it built onto a single soc and at a smaller architecture it wont eat through the battery so quickly. Try out any of the htc one series phones or the s3. This is the lite version of the same chipset making it even more efficient so trust me no worries about eating through battery

you do realize 2100 is the same size battery that the gs3 has... and this is a slower phone with a smaller screen. So, 2100 is more than enough.

heck, my nexus s 4G only has a 1500 mah battery and it does fine.

Other than perhaps wanting a smaller phone, why would anyone choose this (given the specs) over the Galaxy Nexus? At least that will get (late) updates.

size is reason enough, most girls especially don't want these huge phones that are coming out, they can't fit them in their pockets

Looks like bigger version of LG Optimus which will confuse most buyers if they previously had an optimus and had a bad taste in their mouth. Should be a solid entry level smartphone

I wouldn't be surprised if they embedded the LTE and GSM SIM cards. That's what they did for the new Photon and looks like how they are making sure people don't take their devices to other networks.
