Virgin Mobile has joined the ranks of 4G LTE cellular service providers with the release of the Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE. Virgin, an MVNO that operates on Sprint's network, revealed that it is now selling the Galaxy 4G LTE online ahead of a mid-March in-store rollout. The phone was previously available only when purchased with a Sprint voice and data plan, but the option has been extended to prepaid customers.

The Galaxy Victory 4G LTE bears the same features that it did when Samsung and Sprint first announced the smartphone in September. It has a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, a 4-inch display, a 5 megapixel rear camera, and a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera. The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean phone also supports NFC, a microSD slot of up to 32GB, and Bluetooth 4.0. Virgin customers can purchase the Galaxy Victory for $299 online today at either carrier's website.
