We’ve already seen invites from both Samsung and Sony, and now it’s HTC’s turn! The invite reveals HTC will be showing us “what’s next for smartphones” at their press event on September 4th at 8am CEST.

So what can we expect, based on this subtle hint? Considering Qualcomm is marching ever closer to its 64-bit revolution, it seems possible that “what’s next for smartphones” means that HTC will show off the first 64-bit Qualcomm Android device at IFA. A recent leak from upleaks seems to back up this idea, as the unannounced HTC A11 will reportedly feature a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor and other mid-to-low-end specs. The A11 is expected to join the Desire family when it officially debuts.

So what else might we see from HTC? Honestly, we really don’t know, but we wouldn’t be too shocked if they have a few surprises up their sleeves. With LG and Asus both rumored to show off new Android Wear devices, it also seems very possible that we’ll see HTC’s first smartwatch as well.

What would you like to see from HTC at IFA? More Desire handsets, a follow-up for the HTC One Max, a new watch or something else entirely?
