HTC to host a ‘Double Exposure’ event in New York on the 8th of October

HTC has sent invites overnight to press, inviting them to an event in New York on the 8th of October.

While a HTC Tablet is possible (probably not the HTC Nexus 9), the timing of the event suggests it’s most likely going to be something in the realm of the HTC One M8 Max.
