Not even a global pandemic can bring the ever-churning rumour mill to a halt — especially when it comes to tech. New leaks reveal the incoming GoPro Hero 10 Black action cam, and users can expect much of the same.
While the leaked images show an action cam that resembles its older siblings, it also assures that the internals are where the real upgrades are prominent. According to WinFuture, (which accurately leaked the redesigned Hero 9 Black) the Hero 10 Black comes with a more powerful GP2 processor which offers increased performance in a variety of ways.
GoPro’s Hero’s our Hero
The most impressive upgrade of which is the addition of 5.3K video capture support at 60fps. 4K video will come at 120fps and you’ll get 2.4K at an insane 240fps. The previous flagship (which we reviewed here), features 5K30 and 4K60 configs — so there’s a definite resolution upgrade here.
It looks like this one’ll sport a 23 MP camera sensor, replacing the smaller 20MP sensor. In these action cams, users rarely fret about the megapixel stat — they’re more concerned with resolution and the onboard stabilisation software. You’re doing action-y things, right? Might as well have steady footage of it.
“GoPro’s excellent in-camera software stabilization is also seeing an update to HyperSmooth 4.0 and TimeWarp 3.0 for time-lapse videos. Features like a watertight housing up to a depth of 10 meters, touch and voice control, and front and rear displays carry over from last year,” The Verge details.
Of course, we’ll have to wait for official word from the company to deliver the pricing and availability to you — but we’ll get there in the next few weeks. Watch this space.
