HTC Hosting “Double Exposure” Event on October 8

htc event october 8

HTC just invited press to a special event titled “Double Exposure” that is taking place on October 8 in New York City. Dirty details of the topic at hand were not included, so we are left to speculate.

The press invite shows two women holding an HTC One (M8), potentially taking a selfie, along with a couple of green boxes. Of course, that phone has been out for months and is unlikely to be featured again. Are we getting a new phone or the new HTC Nexus 9 that NVIDIA confirmed in legal documents? Tough to tell, but it is about time for HTC to give us something for the holidays.

    Most M8″s are “Not Available” on HTC’s website, wonder if its connected?

    HTC One MAX 2 with 13MP camera on front and back 🙂

  • grokrfun

    The One Max was released in October, 2013 so my hope is One Max 2.

    I’m not an HTC phone owner but I will say this. They’ve learned a lot from their competition over the past few years. I think their next flagship model will be the phone to beat. But I could be wrong. Time will tell.

  • BabyCakes

    I’m calling it….a smartwatch with DuoCamera!

  • Simon Belmont

    Double exposure sounds like a play on words regarding the HTC M8’s duo camera. But, then again, this could very well be the HTC Nexus 9.

    It would be sort of weird for HTC to host a Nexus launch event, though. I dunno, I hope we see more leaks on what it’s about soon.

  • interstellarmind

    I just realized that if HTC is making the Nexus 9, they’ll probably make the camera be 5 ultrapixels.

    Ugh. Total deal breaker for me if Google let’s that happen.

  • Erick

    It’s a wearable.

  • tylerc23

    Could you imagine if it was something to just be like “Hey, remember….we launched the M8 a few months ago, it’s still relevant” lol

    • Vanquishgc

      Actually that would be awesome lol. I see it being a tablet release, and even though they claim they scrapped the smart watch idea for now, it could be a holiday surprise release. But I’d think it would be hysterical if they had an M8 software announcement, and reminding everyone that not only is the phone still relevant, but in some cases better than the competition. Give the old middle finger to Samsung and Apple 😛

  • HTC had another tablet in development according to @upleaks. This event could be for that.

  • Rob Fontelera

    I’d like to see a max 2

  • Cael

    M8+ with 8UP duo camera. Lol

    • Zac S

      the kind of things you could do with an 8UP duo camera would be remarkable considering the 4UP one is fantastic

  • Orion

    Nothing to do with the Nexus. Its probably about that dumb “selfie” phone that has been rumored.

  • Joe J

    HTC ” We f’d up twice on the m7 m8 camera costing us billions so we finally put a 13mp camera without bad software settings to make it look worse than our 4ultrapixel”

  • Dr. Steve

    My thoughts are I want details on the Nexus 6. Nothing more, nothing less.

  • Justin W

    Would HTC host the event for the Nexus 9? That seems unlikely..

    • Chris

      If it’s a htc device yes.

      • Justin W

        That’s counter-intuitive to all previous Nexus devices though. The G Nex through Nexus 5 have all been Google events, not HTC.

        • Chris

          Maybe they will switch it up. The past is the past. You have to keep an open mind.

          • Justin W

            I’m just basing it on logical points and what the trend has been. Not saying it absolutely would never happen, but why would it happen in this situation, what makes the HTC Nexus 9 so special that HTC refused to allow Google, the one who’s essentially selling the device and designing it, to announce it?

        • Malik

          To be fair the G-Nexus was actually a Samsung event and neither the Nexus 4 or 5 had an “event”, though for different reasons.

        • Malik

          To be fair the G-Nexus was actually a Samsung event and neither the Nexus 4 or 5 had an “event”, though for different reasons.

  • What, double camera exposure?? Lol

  • M3D1T8R

    M8+. Improved camera, reduced bezels, and wireless charging (plastic body).
    Well those are the _only_things they need to change to make the M9 perfect as far as I’m concerned. Maybe waterproofing and sapphire display. : )
    I am excited for the Nexus 9.
    But this just sounds like some thing advertising the use of both the front and rear facing cameras at the same time, maybe a new software update. Weird that they’d be advertising that a month out though.

    • Chris Stuart

      If this happens I will be very upset with my G3. The main thing that kept me from getting the M8 was the 4mp camera and dem bezels.

    • michael arazan

      How about a Cheaper M8 for lower cost points to sell more devices to compete with Motorola E & G

    • Brian Ward

      You may be right. Notice the two square boxes highlight the camera? This suggests whatever is coming has a better camera.

  • Richard Gao

    ermahgerd is it the HTC Nexus 9

  • M8 curve with a curved screen on one side with sans serif font saying that it is your phone.


    Speaking of HTC!… Where’s this 4.4.3 update for VZW I heard about 2 days ago?

    • Mike Ennamorato

      I got it…

      • Eric R.

        Delayed to tomorrow, unless they delay it again

        • anselmo cruz

          Lol again its ok its just one day blame verizon

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    The Watch is back on Track/? Watch . . . . and…Nexus Tablet? I mean what else does HTC have to say that we will really care about? They’ve released like 5 phones this year, I don’t really know what they are expecting that will get us excited?

    • Vanquishgc

      5 phones, not all in the states, compared to Samsung’s what, 12? Maybe less, but with the new Notes, they’re in double digits. Just a little perspective.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        What does Samsung have to do with anything? And between At&t and Sprint alone all those device are coming to the US. My point is HTC doesn’t release Fall devices of any significance, especially not phones. So it has to be something unique

        • Vanquishgc

          I was using them for comparison sake. And you could be right, I didn’t think about carrier exclusives. But Samsung puts out a gazillion products and people still flock to their events. HTC doesn’t hold very many so I have to believe it’ll be something significant at least. Basically I’m more inclined to hear what they have for us as opposed to Samsung, because they’re coming off same old same old lately. It goes without saying I wasn’t impressed with either Note lol.

  • inklenotrump

    Nexus 9 and Nexus 6?

    • hansolo

      Oh my yes please! I just lost my phone and i am so torn between HTC and Nexus, so if the next one could be both I’d be in heaven!

    • michael arazan

      HTC M8 “Double Exposure” dual boot Android and Windows? They do have 2 different M8’s at verizon right now with one running windows and the original with Android

      • Brian Ward


  • Alan Paone

    That might well be the most dignified selfie I’ve seen in awhile

  • Tyler Durden

    Double exposure: phone/tablet. Nexus 9 confirmed for Oct 8th release? Same day like the M8?
