GoPro Hero 5 Release Date, Rumors, News and Updates: All Set for an October 2016 Release!?

By Chrix

GoPro, the American camcorder company is said to launch the much awaited GoPro Hero 5 on October 2016!

Here's the latest on GoPro Hero 5 Release Date, Rumors, News and Updates.

According to a report done by Tech News Today, the launch date of the fifth generation of the Hero camera was pushed back due to some upgrades that the makers are trying to squeeze into the Hero 5.

GoPro says that the additional tweaks are proven to make the device stand out and to provide better design and functionality to it. The GoPro Hero 5 has also been said to be launching with an 8k video resolution recording ability at full HD, which is at least double the currently highest resolution of 4k that the Hero 4 Black is able to record. As promising as that sounds, some analysts are not too confident about the high resolution as it may have a negative effect to noise management and battery life.

GoPro Hero 5 is also expected to have a higher frames per second shooting ability, with the new setting being able to shoot up to 60 frames per second. That is also twice the currently highest setting of 30 frames per second.

In our previous report, GoPro, the American camcorder company might be unveiling two of its latest products at the ongoing Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2016 at Las Vegas, Nevada.

The two products are the GoPro Hero 5, the latest iteration to its popular action camera line, and the quadcopter, the GoPro Karma drone. Although GoPro has yet to come out with specific details about its Karma drone, it is possible that the company might drop everything to the public at the CES 2016.

Speculations are also saying that once GoPro drops something about the Karma drone during the event, it is also likely that the company might also give a hint regarding the release date of the GoPro Hero 5. However, some reports are also saying that it is possible that Hero 5 and the Karma drone will come out as a bundled package because the latter reportedly have an all GoPro product compatible set-up.

The GoPro Hero 5 can be used in land, air and water. This is going to be the first Navy-Seal-like camera, which is making consumers excited for its release. The camera's rumored price runs between $450 and $550. This could be a reasonable price if all the reported improvements are true.
