More details about the Samsung Victory 4G LTE are revealed
Samsung Victory 4G LTE will carry a 4 inch screen of unknown material. Yesterday we told you that the screen would have a WVGA resolution, but we did not know the size. Android 4.0 will be installed with TouchWiz on top, which is not exactly shocking news. As we mentioned Saturday, the handset will support NFC which means that Google Wallet will be enabled. And, the Samsung Victory 4G LTE will be a master of all things "Beam" (except Jim, hopefully). The phone will have the Android Beam that is a feature on Ice Cream Sandwich, and will also have the S Beam. The former lets you send calendar events, contacts and links to other NFC equipped models. The latter allows you to send large files, like your photo gallery, to other Samsung phones with S Beam.
The leaked information also points to two cameras on the device, one in back and one in front (where would you expect them to be?) and the renderings show the lack of a home button with three capacitive navigation buttons under the display.
No, that really doesn't give us all of the information that we'd like to have, especially for a model tipped to launch later this month.

yeah, with a name like that you would expect a high end phone. I would have named the phone the Samsung Stalemate 4G LTE.
I love how they pump up the fact that the phone can share its data connection...like no other Android can, huh?
Also, read 'rich entertainment...preloaded apps.' Please, since when are those pre-loaded apps any good? Rarely.

Good starter phone, but only 4GB of hard drive space:

Not sure if it's from a SGSIII. I'm only guessing that because the vibrating icon in the notifications bar is different from the one in the SGSIII (at least different from Sprint's version). My guess is it's from the Note... But no biggie.

The article author comes off kind of condescending... beyond that the victory is a bad name for a generic mid range phone.. maybe call it he stewie? lol

I know this phone is pretty yawn inducing for most people. But there are situations where a phone like this comes in handy. I have two lines: one work line and one personal line. Each are through different carriers. I have a GS3 on T-Mobile and I have an EVO 4G(WiMAX) as my personal phone line. I'd be more than eager to take a step to the Galaxy Victory instead. Get better throughput and a smaller size phone but still large enough to be a good backup. I'll take one.
