Leaked images have already revealed what the new GoPro Hero 10 looks like, while other rumours have detailed its specs, leaving little surprise for when the company announces its latest action camera.
And now, thanks to a slip-up from the company itself, those specs are confirmed.
In the update notes for GoPro’s Quik app, which is now the companion app for the cameras as well as for editing videos, it says:
HERO10 Black is here!
New engine, twice the speed. Our new GP2 processor provides 2X the performance. 2X the frame rates. And 91% more resolution than 4K.
Video so smooth it’s criminal. Play harder and shoot smoother with HyperSmooth 4.0.
Ultra-rich resolution: Shoot in 5.3K at 60fps, 4K 120fps, 2.7K 240fps (it’s a typo in the update notes – it’s not 24fps!)
Picture perfect. 23Mp Photos and a 19.6Mp Frame Grab tool for stunning, unique images.
Speed with ease. Blazing wired offload and faster UI.
So. Now we know the Hero 10 Black is capable of 5.3K video at up to 60fps – up from 5K at 30fps on its predecessor – and 4K at 120fps (twice the framerate, and great for slo-mo, as is 2.7K at 240fps).
And, shortly after spying those details, we found the full datasheet had been posted by prolific leaker
Roland Quandt on Twitter, offering a lot more information about the action camera:
Design-wise, the leaked images – again courtesy of Roland Quandt at
WinFuture.de – show an action camera that looks essentially the same as the
Hero 9 Black, complete with a mount built into the body itself and a colour screen on the front to aid with framing.
GoPro’s website shows today’s date along with a teaser video, strongly suggesting that it will launch the Hero 10 Black – and possibly other models – within hours.
