GoPro Hero 5 release date, specs rumors: Qualcomm Snapdragon processor?


A lot of fans are waiting for the release of the GoPro Hero 5. It has been a year now since the creator of the famous action camera has released a new product, and it is being speculated that the camera will be more innovative with its new features.

The last product that the company released was the GoPro Hero 4 Session whose main selling point was its size. It was a really small camera that could fit inside a person’s hand.

As stated in reports, the new camera will feature a lot of changes. One of those changes could focus on improving the camera’s connectivity to smartphones and also how the action camera could utilize cloud-based storage. It also seems that the upcoming camera may prioritize more athletic activities given the camera’s adaptable functions.

Reports have also mentioned that the company will make the Hero 5 more compact and adaptable to any environment. They will make sure that it will be easier to carry around and that the product would also fit into smaller spaces.

There are also rumors going about that the Hero 5 action camera could use a new processor. Previous releases from GoPro have been equipped with Ambarella chips but reports suggesting that GoPro might go with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor this time around. This would allow the Hero 5 to have the capability of capturing and streaming Full HD 1080p resolution at 30 frames per second.

If these new specs are proven to be true, the new action camera from GoPro will surely be a game changer. Unfortunately, all parties involved have yet to reply to these claims.

The price of the GoPro Hero 5 is speculated to range from about $450 to $550. There is still no exact release date yet for the camera but fans of the product are hoping that it may be released this October.
