More information of the upcoming GoPro Hero 6 Black has appeared online after the leak a few days ago. The action camera is set to launch on 28 September, and the camera will have 240fps recording at 1080p for slow motion video.
Thanks to several photos posted on The Verge, we now know more capabilities of the upcoming action camera. For those who wants some slow-motion video recording, the GoPro Hero 6 Black will now be able to record 240fps in 1080p. The earlier leak already revealed video recording in 4K 60fps.
Not only that, GoPro looks to be using its own processor in the Hero 6 Black, called ‘GP1’, rather than a processor from the current supplier Ambarella. This should mean that the quality of footage and image can be controlled even tighter as silicon development goes in-house.
A photo taken from twitter user @konrad_it meanwhile shows that the Hero 6 Black will be sold beside the current range of cameras, rather than replacing the Hero 5 Black. The lineup includes the GoPro Fusion, a 5.2K 360 degree camera, alongside the previously launched GoPro Hero 5 Black and Hero 5 Session.
The Hero 6 Black is expected to be priced at $499 when it is launched on September 28. Malaysian availability is still unknown, but we may know more once the launch date approaches.
