Samsung India just sent out invites for an event in New Delhi on August 11th. Even though the invite just says to block the date, it also says that Samsung’s next flagship will be unveiled at the event. This will likely be the Samsung Galaxy Note7 that will be introduced at an event in New York later today at 8:30 PM IST. It will also be streamed live in 360-degrees.
