The latest and upcoming upgrade of the GoPro Hero 5 will be packed with a lot of breakthrough features and this includes two major debuts in the GoPro range of action cameras. Rumors indicate that it will gain the ability to record 8K resolution videos.

It was also gain the capability to capture 3D videos that will dramatically enhance the user experience, particularly while filming adrenaline filled moments and extreme action filled sequences, according to Youth Health Mag.

GoPro Hero devices are considered a favorite among active people who love being engaged in extreme sports. Reports further indicate that GoPro Hero 5 will feature dual lens that allows it to record and capture 3D Videos and this makes it a first among the GoPro range of devices.

However, technically discussing, it is not yet clear as to how 3D video recording capability will blend with the 8K resolution recording of the GoPro Hero 5. Besides, we also have to consider the faster processing speed of the camera.

With the 8K resolution recording capability, the GoPro Hero 5 will feature a marked upgrade, compared to its predecessors and will set a new benchmark for upcoming action-cameras to accomplish.

Similarly, the upcoming device will be able to record 4K resolution videos at 60 frames per second. The chip was produced by AMD and features a quad-core CPU with a 3.8GHz base clock and 4.2GHz turbo clock. It will also provide the best-in-class 3D performance in 3D Gaming and GoPro is taking it to the next level of video recording.

Meanwhile, there are several other improvements like that of 2800mAh battery, which is considered to be a 150% improvement from GoPro Hero 4’s battery. With a new battery life, the GoPro Hero 5 can record two hours of video on a single dose of charge.

The device further includes HDMI ports, Bluetooth 4.0 compatibility, and Wi-Fi compatibility along with a waterproofing technology which allows it to withstand a depth of 60 meters. With an enhanced Bluetooth compatibility, the upload speed of GoPro Hero 4 will be increased.
