Samsung Galaxy Victory

An early Jelly Bean ROM leaked out for the Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE about a month and a half ago, and today Sprint has made it official. Android 4.1.2 (that's a newer version than the leaked ROM) is headed out the door.

The update's coming over the air, Sprint says (feel free to hop into the settings and see if it's available now). In addition to the Googleriffic features like Google Now and the Project Butter speed improvements, you'll also get the following new features:

  • Swype
  • Notifications now display full text of incoming SMS messages, and when you receive an MMS you can view full photo in the notification
  • Pinch notifications to expand or collapse them
  • Notifications from the same application are grouped together, and the first item is automatically expanded
  • Conversational text-to-speech voice in U.S. English
  • Voice typing without an Internet connection
  • Manage/create Google+ Events from device
  • Zagat ratings and reviews built into Google Maps™
  • Indoor walking directions integrated into Google Maps

Sprint's Samsung Galaxy Victory gets its Jelly Bean update

I've pre-ordered the HTC One, but I'll give credit to Samsung, they know how to retain their customers. Don't think it's an accident that within the last few weeks before the S4 comes out they've been updating a ton of old and mid-level phones to Jelly Bean to show their commitment to updates. That's the kind of thing that will make someone want to stick with a vendor and the timing keeps it fresh in their minds.

Samsung is updating what seems like everyone of their phones. Now if only the other manufacturers could do the same and in a more timely manner.

at present the smartphone market is too competitive. So with the awesome outlook design, cool and surprising software, powerful hardware and frequently update are major matters. Keep going Samsung ................

The 4.1.2 release caused serious issues with the camera and gallery features on the Samsung victory 4G phone. They have been slow to fix patch and providing awful service.
