Samsung is of course dominating the smartphone and Android market, and that is down to its line of quality devices that extends beyond its Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 flagships. In many ways its quality mid-range offerings are also responsible for the company’s success in recent years, and one interesting mid-range handset worth taking a look at is the Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE that is sold through Sprint in the United States.
The Victory 4G continues the lineage of the Galaxy series and boasts a mid-range price point with some quality specs such as 4G LTE. The handset has a 4-inch display, dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, while it packs in 4GB of internal storage, a 5 megapixel rear cam, and Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.
Or at least it used to have ICS 4.0 because Samsung has finally decided to implement an update to put Android Jelly Bean on the Galaxy Victory 4G LTE. That is obviously great news for all you owners of the Victory and you will surely be delighted to know that the update to Android 4.1 is now available for download at Samsung Updates.
At first we thought that Samsung had accidentally released a leak for the update, but after a closer inspection we think that the L399VPALJ9 package coming in at 370mb is indeed the official OTA release. Great news, because Samsung is notoriously slow in rolling out its updates, so the fact this has not been recalled means it seems legit and is not a leak.
That said, neither Samsung or official Galaxy Victory carrier Sprint have officially announced this update, so if you are not confident with flashing and rooting then it is best to hold off a few days for an official announcement, which will enable you to update via your device.
