In February GoPro announced they will be releasing new cameras annually instead of every two years “We can confirm there will be new cameras and other accessories released during the year and [a] new camera namely being Hero 6 ,” CEO Nick Woodman told investors in February this year.
These days Photo Rumors got hold of a Hero 6 box shot from one of its readers. According to the wording on the pack the key change is that Hero 6 will be able to shoot in 4K at 60fps, compared with the Hero 5, which shoots in 4K at 30fps. Specs that remain unchanged are the resolution, which stays at 12MP, and the water resistance, which is 10 meters (33 feet).
The expected release date for the new Hero 6 is 28th of September 2017. It is also speculated that there will be only one model of Hero 6 — the Hero 6 Black, but not Hero Sessions. Hero 5 Black and Hero 5 Session will still be available.
