IFA 2014 is just underway, as several companies vie for supremacy in showing off their latest and greatest creations at the annual expo.

With the IFA expo scheduled to kick off on 3 September at 10am CET in Berlin, we could yearn to get a glimpse of the two highly-anticipated smartphones of 2014, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Sony Xperia Z3.

Here is the gist of the complete schedule for the IFA event including the individual press conference details for top companies participating in the event:

3 September

Samsung Press Conference

Samsung is expected to announce the highly-anticipated Galaxy Note 4 at its UNPACKED event on 3 September, while speculation is rife that the company might also have a surprise smartwatch launch in store.

Watch out for the Note 4 with 5.7in QHD screen (1,440 x 2,550) Super AMOLED screen, Snapdragon 805 or Exynos 5433 chipset (64-bit), a 16MP camera and the most desirable S-Pen stylus.

In addition, the company has lined up the Gear S while rumours suggest the VR headset could also make its way into the IFA UNPACKED event.

The event is scheduled to kick off at 2pm BST or 3pm CET or 9:00am ET or 8:00am CT or 7:00am MT or 6:00am PT or 1:00pm GMT.

Sony Press Conference

Sony is expected to announce two new flagship smartphones, the Xperia Z3 and the Xperia Z3 Compact, which have been in rumours for weeks.

The Z3 Compact will be the budget version of Z3 with similar specs and features as the latter, but in a smaller package.

Sony is also expected to launch its own version of the VR headset (Project Morpheus) alongside the third-generation SmartWatch with IP58 certification and SmartBand.

Sony's press event will kick off at 3:15pm BST, 4:15pm CET, 10:15am ET, 9:15am CT, 8:15am MT or 7:15am PT.

Asus Press Conference

Asus is expected to showcase its much hyped ZenWatch in the budget smartwatch category with an estimated price tag of $150 which seems far cheaper than Samsung, Motorola and LG smartwatches that are expected to be unveiled at the IFA in Berlin.

The event will kick off at 12:30pm (local time), 11:30am UTC, 6:30am EDT or 3:30am PDT.

Acer Press Conference

There is still no word on the launch rumours or expected product launches for Acer at the IFA 2014 as the company seems tight-lipped about its plans for the annual event starting at 11am CET, 5:00am ET, 4:00am CT, 3:00am MT, 2:00am PT or 9:00am GMT.

4 September

In addition, rumours are abound that HTC will also launch a new Tegra K1-based tablet, which is touted to be the Nexus 9. It is likely that HTC could reserve the announcement of Nexus 9 for the Google I/O event rather than disclosing it at the IFA.

The HTC event begins at: 7:00am BST, 8:00am CET, 2:00am ET, 1:00am CT, 12:00am MT, 11:00pm PT (Sep 3), 6:00am GMT.
