The keynote is scheduled for 23:00 local time the day before the official start of IFA 2017 where new product announcements are expected to be announced.

Sony isn't the only manufacturer to have reserved a keynote spot at this year's IFA event. Lenovo has just sent out press invites for its own keynote taking place on the very same day as Sony's on August 31st in Berlin. Unfortunately, the invite makes no hints or teasers about any potential announcements or products.

Despite the lack of any clues, we can predict that the keynote will not likely focus on Moto smartphones as Lenovo is already dedicating an entire Motorola launch event on July 25th in New York. Most, if not all, Motorola-related announcements will already be known well ahead of IFA 2017. Smartphones directly under the Lenovo Brand, such as the ZUK series, could still potentially make an appearance at IFA. The New York event is definitely a surprise considering that the Motorola brand has been a sinking ship for the Chinese manufacturer.

A more probable expectation is the reveal of multiple new convertibles and unique notebooks. Successors to the popular Yoga convertible or the keyboard-free Yoga Book, for example, could be in the works. Curved and foldable tablet concepts teased during last year's Lenovo Tech World in San Francisco could make more thorough appearances as well.

Notebookcheck will be live at IFA 2017 for all the latest mobile news and product announcements.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
