Images of the GoPro Hero 10 Black were leaked yesterday, giving us a first look at images of the device as well as specs. WinFuture, a German publication that previously leaked information about the redesigned Hero 9 Black in August of last year, was also behind the latest leak. A report on the website suggests that the Hero 10 Black resembles its predecessor (Hero 9 Black) in terms of size, design, and external accessibility features. The only design difference so far can be seen in the blue accents that spell out “10 Black”.
The main hardware changes we’re seeing are improvements in processing power with the new GP2 processor and an improved image sensor that goes from 20 megapixels to 23 megapixels. The Hero 10 Black is also expected to support 5.3K video recording at a smooth 60fps (fps), 4K video at 120fps, and 2.7K video at 240fps. The latter can help you create high resolution slow motion clips. This is a huge improvement over previous models which only supported 5K recording at 30 fps and 4K recording at 60 fps.
Marketing materials seen by WinFuture suggest that Hero 10 Black’s camera software stabilization will be enhanced to provide “gimbal-like stabilization” after being upgraded to HyperSmooth 4.0 and TimeWarp 3.0 for time-lapse video. Users can also take advantage of an automatic download feature to transfer files online at a much faster speed. The Hero 10 Black also supports 1080p live streaming, like the previous models. Finally, the Hero 10 Black would offer a 10-meter-deep casing, touchscreen controls and voice accessibility. Users can also access webcam mode with SuperPhoto and HDR options. These features combined with the enhanced recording capability have the potential to be a game-changer for streamers and on-location photographers.
The company hasn’t made an official announcement, so we don’t know how much the Hero 10 Black would cost. The previous edition, Hero 9 Black was released at $ 450 and is currently priced at $ 400 (excluding subscription), so we can expect a number around that range, perhaps a little higher. Given the scale of recent leaks, the Hero 10 Black launch may be imminent.
