GoPro is working on a whole new action camera.
However, under the hood is something new — GoPro’s own GP2 CPU. The new GoPro is supposedly capable of recording video at 5.3K quality at up to 60 frames per second, or 4K video at 120 frames per second, thanks to the updated chip. If you enjoy slow motion, 240 frames per second is also available if you are ready to reduce the video resolution to 2.7K.
GoPro’s next flagship action camera appears to have been leaked online, replete with a thorough specifications list.
The leak comes courtesy of WinFuture, the same site that also accurately leaked the Hero 9 Black before GoPro made it official a year ago. According to the intelligence, the new GoPro Hero 10 Black won’t deviate much from the existing flagship in terms of external design, save for some blue accents that highlight the make and model.
GoPro’s HyperSmooth 4.0 technology is supposed to provide “gimbal-like stabilisation,” as well as waterproofing down to 10 metres, a touchscreen display, and voice control. Photo resolution has apparently been increased to 23 megapixels as a result of a new image sensor, and usual functions such as RAW photo compatibility, webcam mode, and HDR have also been restored.
No word yet on when GoPro plans to announce its new Hero 10 Black or how much it’ll retail for. If last year’s drop was any indication, however, it could happen within the next couple of weeks. For reference, the Hero 9 Black launched with an MSRP of $449.99.
