HTC is likely to unveil the HTC A9 "Aero" on September 29 alongside another high-end handset

Last week, HTC teased an upcoming "handsome" smartphone, leading many to believe that the handset in question will be the often-rumored HTC One A9 "Aero". Unfortunately for those of you with an eye for high-end smartphones, it turned out that HTC was referring to a mid-range model, the HTC Desire 728. In less than 24 hours since unveiling the Desire 728, however, HTC started sending invites to an event where not one, but two high-end smartphones might see the light of day.
The invite, which you can see above, reads "The World Best Meets The Best", which is thought to mean that the Taiwan-based manufacturer will actually unveil two new high-end smartphones. Obviously, one of these handsets could well be the HTC One A9 / Aero. According to previous rumors, the "Aero" will come with specs such as a deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 processor, a QHD display, 4GB of RAM, as well as a new primary camera that can shoot RAW photos.
The second handset - if we're reading through the teaser correctly, that is - might be a new HTC Butterfly smartphone aimed at the Japanese market or just another spinoff based on the HTC One M9.
The event is scheduled for September 29, which is just three weeks from now. There's a very good chance that we'll get to learn more about HTC's upcoming phones before the company officially unveils them, as is often the case with upcoming high-end smartphones. As soon as new info is available, we'll be right here to bring it to you, so stay tuned!
Same day as Google Nexus, not smart.

It seems to me that ALL (Xiaomi Mi5, new Nexus, HTC 'Hero' O2/Aero) Snapdragon 820 device will be launched on September 29.

Hopefully HTC can pull a miracle out of their @$$ because I really love them as a brand. Who ever is in charge is just a dumbass from the pits of hell, sent to make us HTC stans die from an aching heart...

I agree, I have had a lot of HTC products including Windows phones and have always had a great user experience with them even with the less than stellar camera. I just wish they could have a great well rounded smart phone with great design, UI and camera maybe a little to late or to much to ask......

Well if they use x20 it will be the best SoC (2015) in CPU power according to bencmarks. Not sure about GPU though.

To me it sounds like a partnership of some sort. "The world best meets the best?" If that applied to two phones then doesn't that imply that "the world best" was never really the best? So, I'm thinking HTC partnered with another company to help them perhaps in an area that they are weak? Similar to how they partnered with Dolby, perhaps HTC this time around has partnered with a top quality camera/lens provider?

Good and Logical theory. HTC did in a way popularized Windows Mobile and Android. (at least it was a known manufacture of both). They are also the only company that made Android and Windows at the same time ( HTC one m8 I guess was on both OS )

HTC is done like dinner. Maybe Google is stupid enough to let them make a Nexus 10. After the complete and utter failure of the Nexus 9 I don't see why but I haven't agreed with any of their moves since the Nexus 5.
