Samsung Gear S3 to be launched today, priced at 54,364?

The company has sent out invites to media requesting presence at a press conference in New Delhi but that has no mention of any product. However, Monday’s annoucement at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that the Gear S2, Gear S3 and the recently launched Gear Fit2 shall now be supported on iOS devices makes us believe that it is mostly the Gear S3 that is due to be launched in two variants here.

Samsung is expected to launch a major product on Tuesday evening and we have every reason to believe that it might be the next flagship wearable named Samsung Gear S3.

The company has sent out invites to media requesting presence at a press conference in New Delhi but that has no mention of any product.
