The camera further offers a unique dynamic range and is considered to have the best video quality in any action camera. There are newer and cheaper entrants (read Sony) who tried to vanquish the GoPro Hero 4 but all in vain. However, these rivals are trying to saturate the market and they are catching up quite fast with GoPro, in terms of video quality and overall performance.
Rumors indicate that GoPro Hero 5 has an A10 chip which can capture 4K videos at 60 frames per second and the ultra HD feature ensures 8K recording at a resolution of 3840×2160. If this happens, it will be a major improvement over 30 frames per second recording provided by the Hero 4 Black variant. Besides Bluetooth and Wi-Fi support, Hero 5 should also include an HDMI port which is greatly missed in its predecessors.
However, GoPro fans that were looking for an annual upgrade will be irritated with the delay. Rest assured, this delay means that the company is making further improvements to the camera and trying to bring out a more polished product.
Stay tuned for more updates on GoPro Hero 5!
