It was earlier predicted that both devices will be launched at the same time in order to increase sales to a great extent. They might not have released at the same time and it was earlier believed that Hero 5 would in fact, be released earlier.
Moreover, the Karma drone should work with older GoPro devices since it is backward compatible. However, the demand for drones has been increasing and this probably one of the reasons why the company finally decided to release it before.
In brief, these are the following things you need to know about the GoPro Hero 5:
- The device will be smaller and lighter
- GoPro Hero 5 will release with drone functionality and compatibility
- The device will be waterproof
- The device will be capable of 8K shooting
- Hero 5 will incorporate the use of Dual Lens
- Hero 5 will feature Bluetooth and chipset
- The device will be a connectible action camera
- Hero 5 is capable of recording at 60fps
- Coming to the price point, GoPro has been slashing prices of their devices for some time and we should expect the Hero 5 to be aggressively competitive in price.
