The action camera manufacturer, GoPro, is anticipated to roll out a new camera, the GoPro Hero 6 Black. However, it appears that the company’s upcoming camera has already surfaced on the internet. The GoPro Hero 6 Black’s image even showcased the device’s specifications.

The product box image of the new action camera was posted on the web by Photo Rumors. There’s a possibility that a retail employee sent the photo of the new camera to the publication site. Nonetheless, the image of the new device appears to look like its predecessor. The product box listed the specs of the GoPro Hero 6 Black, such as a 4K video recording at 60fps, 33 feet waterproof and a 12MP camera.

The notable spec bump of GoPro’s new action camera is its capability to record 4K resolution video running at 60 frames per second.


Wherein, its predecessor can only record 4K videos running at 30fps.

Several GoPro camera users generally desired for a higher video frame rate, since it can capture sharper videos even in motion. The feature is significant for users who are doing extreme sports.

The action camera manufacturer rolled out two variants of its Hero 5 last year, namely the Hero 5 Black and the Hero 5 Session. According to The Verge, the firm claimed that the 2016 versions were the best-selling digital camera in the United States.

The company also launched its camera drone in 2016, dubbed the GoPro Karma. However, after the device’s initial release, it was slammed with a battery problem. The firm recalled the drone back in November 2016, after the company fixed the device, it hit the shelves in February 2017.
