The simplicity was greatly improved before the camera finally arrives. GoPro also declared that easier editing software will be releasing in March. According to the rumor mill, the upcoming device will have twice the battery life and it will be priced in $450-$550. Compared to earlier models, it will be lighter as well as smaller.
Other rumors suggest that it will feature the awesome cube design as seen in the Hero 4 Session. Furthermore, it will be able to record 8K videos and feature a 2800mAh battery. Compared to that, the Session has a 1000mAh battery and can record at full HD maximum resolution.
Meanwhile, Ambarella is a SoC chip which has been used for models in the past, like the A9 processor used in Hero 4 Black. The chip helped the Hero 4 to deliver high-bit-rate 4K-resolution video at 30 frames per second and full HD clips at up to 120fps.
It also came with high-performance capabilities. The A9SE was the follow-up to that processor and it was announced in 2015 October. It records 4K at 30fps and uses less power in the process, while being capable of recording a second stream at 720p, 30fps.
