Notably, the invite doesn't contain any mention of what HTC intends to launch at the event. There is also no word on the expected pricing of the new Desire-series smartphone from HTC.
The Desire 820 was unveiled earlier this month at IFA and is the company's first smartphone featuring a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor with integrated 4G LTE Cat. 4 connectivity.
At the global unveiling of the Desire 820, the Taiwanese handset maker had confirmed that the handset will be rolled out globally starting late-September. The company is also likely to launch Dot View cases for the Desire 820, considering the smartphone supports these cases.

Connectivity options on the handset include Wi-Fi, FM radio, Bluetooth, GPRS/ EDGE, GPS/ A-GPS, 3G and 4G LTE connectivity. The handset measures 157.7x78.74x7.74mm and weighs 155 grams.
