Sony announces IFA event – September 4 will be a busy day for smartphones

This year’s IFA in Berlin is just a few weeks away, and like any other year, we’re expecting to see a whole lot of smartphones unveiled All the big names will be holding press conferences of their own, and we’ve already begun to get invitations to some – earlier this month, for instance, we learned of Samsung’s plans to have an event on September 4. Today we get confirmation of another OEM with similar plans, seeing Sony’s invite to its own IFA event.

This date is hardly a shock, as we saw a leaked teaser late last week mention the same date, but official confirmation is always nice to get.

So, what will we be looking forward to from Sony? The Honami/Xperia i1 is practically a given, and has been popping up in so many leaks lately, it’s almost surprising the phone hasn’t already launched. There are also those crazy lens-camera add-ons we’ve been talking about, once sounding like a preposterous rumor but looking more and more real thanks to newly leaked renders.

As always, we’ll be covering IFA from the show floors ourselves, and will do our best to bring you hands-on looks at whatever new gear Sony has ready to unveil.
