Recently, GoPro fans were upset that the fifth generation of Hero camera did not appear in the market on October. However, some reports say the company will release the much-awaited Hero camera together with the GoPro Drone next year.
According to Latinos Post, the launching of the GoPro Hero 5 was expected in October this year, but the date has been postponed to 2016. The report explained that the delayed launch will make way for the much better action camera.
The GoPro Hero 5 is believed to sport an impressive Full Ultra HD video recording capability, also known as the 8K resolution, as per Venture Capital Post published. The camera will also have the ability to shoot images and record videos at 60 meters underwater. Hero 4 can only go down as much as 20 meters underwater.
Diving enthusiasts will love this camera because it will be protected with housing designed for diving activities.
If the rumored reports are true, the fifth-generation of Hero will be the first camera from GoPRo to have the 8K display, which will give users the clearest possible videos and pictures.
Moreover, the impressive action camera will be smaller and lighter. It will reportedly be 50 percent smaller in size and 40 percent lighter in weight than the previous iteration of GoPro camera.The reduction in size and weight will make it more portable and easier to carry around for people with active lifestyle.
For its battery capacity, users can record high-resolution videos for about two hours. With that amount of time, it is expected to outlast Hero 4 regarding battery life.
The Bluetooth of the device has also improved capabilities. Users of Hero 5 can transfer and upload videos and images at a greater speed. GoPro Inc. armed the camera with a powerful A10 chip to ensure its seamless function under any conditions.
On the other hand, PC Mag revealed some interesting details about GoPro Karma Drone. The company developed the device for more than year, and it will be in the line of GoPro's "multi-rotor helicopters."
The company confirmed that the drone camera will arrive next year. "Karma is coming in 2016," a blog post said, featuring some footages released two months ago.
The featured video also comes with a soothing voiceover accompaniment."Take a moment to look around you. Take a moment to recognize the magic that surrounds us every day," the voiceover says.
It continues: "Go wherever you want, experience it from any perspective. What if you could fly? That would be magic."
