IFA 2014 schedule: Here's what happens when
IFA 2014 is already underway! The expo runs officially from the 5th to the 10th of September, but as you probably know, many companies will be using the following pre-IFA days to introduce their latest and greatest creations. We've already seen some great announcements yesterday, September 3rd, when Samsung shocked us with its Galaxy Note Edge that was unveiled alongside the Note 4. Sony also delivered: it took the wraps off the 5.2" Xperia Z3 and 4.6" Xperia Z3 Compact, plus it brought the amazingly lightweight Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. Today, we expect to see more new announcements by HTC, Nokia, Lenovo and Huawei. 

Stay tuned to PhoneArena for all the latest from IFA 2014!

September 4

HTC Press Conference

Event begins at: 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

HTC isn't expected to come up with anything groundbreaking at IFA 2014, but still, the company is still supposed to have an interesting new device to showcase. Namely, that's the HTC Desire 820, which is expected to become the first officially-announced Android smartphone powered by a 64-bit processor. The processor in question is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615, suggesting an upper-mid-range placement for the handset.

There's something exciting that Microsoft has in stock for us – a new smartphone or two, it seems. Rumor has it that the company will announce the Nokia Lumia 730 and Nokia Lumia 830 on September 4. The former is said to be a low-cost model and taking good selfies could be its stand-out feature. Meanwhile, the Lumia 830 is expected to be a slightly beefier WP 8.1 handset.

Huawei is expected to introduce a new smartphone on September 4, and judging by the leaks, it is going to be worthy of rivaling the competition's high-ends. Allegedly, the handset will be known as the Huawei Ascend D3 (or D7) and will stand out with a premium, metal construction.

September 3

Asus Press Conference

Asus has a press event set for September 3, and we're expecting it to be dedicated to a whole bunch of devices. One of them is rumored to be a smartwatch – a watch running the Google Wear platform. While specs aren't known, it is said that Asus's smartwatch will be a fashionable timepiece with an attractive price. We aren't sure what else is going to be announced at the event, but there's a chance of seeing a new lineup of ZenFone Android smartphones, a new PadFone, and possibly Intel-based Android and/or Windows 8 tablets.

Acer Press Conference

Event begins at: 5:00 am ET | 4:00 am CT | 3:00 am MT | 2:00 am PT | 9:00 am GMT | 11:00 am CET

Excited about the newest range of Samsung printers? We aren't either. What we're actually looking forward to is the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The phone is going to be unveiled at an Unpacked event, which is scheduled for September 3, and it is going to be a beast, judging by all the Note 4 rumors. It won't be the sole star of the show, however, as Samsung is believed to be readying a number of other gadgets, including a new smartwatch.

Sony Press Conference

Event begins at: 10:15 am ET | 9:15 am CT | 8:15 am MT | 7:15 am PT | 2:15 pm GMT | 4:15 pm CET

At least two new smartphones are going to be announced by Sony. These are the Sony Xperia Z3 and the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, which we've been hearing rumors about for weeks. From the looks of it, the former will become the company's newest Android flagship smartphone, while the latter will be its "mini" version, offering similar specs and features, but in a smaller package.
