GoPro Hero 5 to Come Out as Half the Weight and Size of Hero 4!

Accordingly, the GoPro Hero 5 will have the capability to capture 8K videos at Full Ultra HD, which is twice the 3,840 x 2,160 resolution that the GoPro Hero 4 has.

The device can also record 4K resolution videos at 60 frames per second, 1080-pixel resolution at 60 frames per second, 720-pixel at 100 frames per second, and 1440-pixel at 30 frames per second.

The reported capability of the GoPro Hero 5 to capture 3D video would dramatically improve user experience particularly in filming extreme action and adrenaline-filled moments. In order to do that, GoPro Hero 5 shall feature dual lens which would enable it to capture 3D videos, making it the first-of-its-kind for any GoPro devices.

Technically speaking, however, it is still not clear how the 8K resolution would blend with the 3D video recording capability of the GoPro Hero 5, and also the supposed faster processing speed of the camera.

To be able to have those superb capabilities, the GoPro Hero 5 will feature an A10 processor. Produced by AMD, the chip is the flagship of the Trinity series and features a quad-core CPU with up to 3.8GHz base clock and 4.2GHz turbo clock. It usually provides best-in-class performance in 3D gaming but GoPro is taking it to the next level in video recording.

Several improvements were also made on the other specifications of the device including more generous battery life with its 2800 mAH battery, which is a 150% improvement from the battery of the GoPro Hero 4. With such battery life, the GoPro Hero 5 can actually record two hours of video on a single charge.
