HTC is set to unveil its next smartphone on October 20th in New York City, where we’re pretty sure the Taiwanese company will officially announce the rumored HTC One A9 (aka Aero). There’s been no shortage of rumors regarding this new handset, from leaked images to purported availability details. And now that the official announcement is just one week away, it looks like HTC is in full hype mode.

To generate as much hype as possible, the company has just tweeted out a teaser that features a short little monochrome video. Unfortunately it doesn’t actually give us much information about what we’ll see at the event, but take a look just in case you’d like to speculate.

Also attached to the tweet is a link that brings us to the event page on HTC’s website, which tells us that HTC is partnering with Tidal (Jay Z’s music streaming service) for the event. From the website:

Those who appreciate great music know greatness when they hear it. That’s why it only makes sense to partner with Tidal to celebrate the launch of our newest device for an event unlike anything that’s ever rocked the Barclays Center.

So all in all, we’re pretty sure that we’ll see HTC unveil the One A9 on the 20th, and it will have something to do with Tidal. Perhaps purchasers of the One A9 will get a free Tidal subscription? We aren’t entirely sure. In any case, the event will take place on Tuesday, October 20th at 12pm EST/9am PST. We’ll be sure to bring you all of the details as they happen, so stay tuned for more coverage!
