HTC press-conference at IFA 2014: liveblog
While HTC isn't expected to blow us away at IFA, it's still said to announce a pretty interesting device in the Desire 820 - the phone that's expected to become the first official Android offering with a 64-bit chipset ticking inside.

To be more specific, the HTC Desire 820 should have the Snapdragom 615 chipset under the hood - a piece of silicon that is supposed to deliver some pretty decent upper-midrange performance. Plus, it'd be interesting to see if its 64-bit nature is to bring any substantial boost to the handset's operation.

Besides that, we don't really have too many leads on what HTC may bring to the table, but thankfully, well know soon enough! Just follow our liveblog below to stay up to date!

Event start time: 2:00 am ET | 1:00 am CT | 12:00 am MT | 11:00 pm PT (Sep 3) | 6:00 am GMT | 8:00 am CET

The 5mp front cam on the M8 is great, really great for selfies, especially group selfies. It's awesome in low light. Hope the sensor and lens of the front cam on this Desire 8 are good as well. I don't like seeing cameras with high pixel count but crappy photo quality.
