HTC sends invites for mystery event on Oct. 8

The device maker gives few hints on the event, although the "Double Exposure" invite suggests we may see a camera-related announcement.

HTC on Wednesday sent out invitations to the press for a mystery event in New York City on October 8. The company has long been rumored to be working on a new 9-inch tablet with Google, however it appears unlikely that we will see such a device at this event.

The theme of the invite -- "Double Exposure" -- and the fact that HTC asks invitees to submit a selfie with their RSVP suggests a camera or photo-centric event.

HTC has emphasized camera performance and features on its devices in recent years. The company ditched traditional megapixels with the original HTC One smartphone and instead opted for a custom image sensor it marketed as Ultrapixels.

On the flagship HTC One M8, a second depth of field sensor was added to the camera for greater customization of images.

The October 8 event is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m ET. CNET will be on hand to bring you the news as it breaks.
