The current mainstream Full High Definition (HD) standard for video resolution today is 1080-pixel. 4K resolution is referred to as Ultra HD and is twice today’s standard with 2160-pixel. Thus, 8K resolution is twice the 4K resolution and is 4,320-pixel. It is also called Full Ultra HD.
Apparently, it would be the new A10 processor that would enable the GoPro Hero 5 to record Full Ultra HD videos but at a lower frame rate. The device will likewise be capable of recording 4K resolution videos at 60 frames per second.
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.
The device also features Wi-Fi compatibility, HDMI ports, Bluetooth 4.0 compatibility, and a waterproofing technology that can actually withstand a depth of 60 meters, which means that the camera will still be functional under water provided it does not go deeper than 60 meters.
