With the time left until companies take up to the stages at IFA 2014 in Berlin best counted in hours, the excitement is becoming palpable. And, true enough, if you consider yourself a techie, you likely already know what most manufacturers probably have in store for us, and are also most excited about at least one upcoming product. This certainly applies to the PhoneArena team, but we wanted to probe the community as well.
So which one is it? Many of you will probably say the successor to Samsung's Note line, the Note 4. Others are also likely excited about Sony and its upcoming additions to the Xperia line -- the Z3, the Z3 Compact, and, that's right, the Z3 Tablet Compact. That last one ought to be interesting if you're into Sony design and are planning on picking up a tablet, but don't want a giant slate.
And what about HTC and Qualcomm? Those two seem to have collaborated closely, and have teased that they're on path to announcing the first 64-bit Android handset, the Desire 820, a device that we expect to fall into the upper mid-range category. Huawei is also expected to announce the Ascend Mate 7 phablet, known for its insane battery life, so that one will be pretty interesting, too.
But what about you? What are you most excited about?
