GoPro Hero10 Black - The next-generation action camera | Release date, Specs and New features

GoPro Hero10 Black - The next-generation action camera
The new GP2 processor is expected to provide a major boost in performance with support for shooting 5.3K videos at 60fps, or 4K videos at 120fps, which is useful for slow motion shots.

GoPro may launch its next action camera in September. The images and specifications of GoPro Hero 10 Black have leaked ahead of the launch. The next-generation action camera seems like a redesigned version of the GoPro Hero 9 Black from last year but, is tipped to come with a more powerful GP2 processor for improved overall performance. The images of the product have been leaked by WinFuture and show the upcoming camera in the black colour variant.

Double performance thanks to the new GoPro GP2 chip

With the new model, the so-called GP2 engine has arrived. The special processor is supposed to double the performance and, with other hardware updates, enable improved performance in poor lighting conditions. GoPro describes the image stabilization HyperSmooth 4.0 in its marketing materials as "groundbreaking" and therefore wants to use it in all operating modes of the GoPro Hero 10 Black.

The image sensor on the GoPro Hero 10 Black is also said to come with a 23-megapixel lens, as compared to last year's GoPro Hero 9's 20-megapixel sensor.

As already reported, the new GoPro should deliver the sharpest images yet, with photos with up to 23 megapixels and 5.3K videos with up to 60 frames per second being possible. Slow motion videos are possible with eight times the delay at 2.7K resolution (2.7K at 240 FPS). For this specification, GoPro naturally requires the 30 FPS frame rate of the basic setting.

According to the report, the GoPro Hero 10 Black will support RAW images, SuperPhoto, HDR and webcam mode like its predecessor.

The company is also looking at including an automatic upload function to simplify sharing videos on the web, alongside the current 1080p live streaming feature.


Better low-light performance & HyperSmooth 4.0

The new GP2 processor on the GoPro Hero 10 Black is expected to provide a major boost in performance with support for shooting 5.3K videos at 60fps, or 4K videos at 120fps.

If desired, you can also extract still images with a decent 15.8 megapixels from the 5.3K videos. GoPro promises, among other things, recordings with lots of details, realistic rendering of the textures and decent contrast - even in low light. In order to improve the image quality with the optics, the GoPro Hero 10 Black is given a lens cover with a hydrophobic, i.e. water-repellent coating, which additionally minimizes reflections and is intended to prevent other disruptive effects.

HyperSmooth 4.0 should ensure, among other things, that the recordings of the GoPro Hero10 Black deliver particularly soft recordings and can be easily activated at any time. The software also helps to increase the low-light performance and enables a horizon alignment with a higher slope limit.

The in-camera software stabilization is also likely to get an update to HyperSmooth 4.0 and TimeWarp 3.0 for time-lapse videos. It will borrow many features from its predecessor including watertight housing up to a depth of 10 meters, touch and voice control, and front and rear displays.

New front display with higher refresh rate

GoPro Hero10 Black - The next-generation action camera
Action camera maker GoPro is working on launching its next device, the GoPro Hero 10 Black. The GoPro Hero 10 Black has been leaked in full ahead of its launch. The upcoming action camera was leaked by WinFuture and it is said to come wtih a more powerful GP2 processor from GoPro.

The display of the Hero10 remains unchanged at 2.27 inches and can be operated by touch. On the front, the refresh rate of the additional display, which is unchanged in size, was allegedly increased in order to achieve a more fluid display. GoPro also promises that the touch controls and the shutter release can now be operated faster. The image quality for live streams should now also be higher.

The GoPro Hero10 Black's field of view remains unchanged at 132 degrees. With the Max Lens Mod it can be widened to 155 degrees as before. The manufacturer also states that the dimensions of the new model have not changed, so that all accessory products of the Hero9 should also be compatible with the new version of the action camera. Only the weight is insignificantly lower at 153 grams.

The battery has not changed either. The power storage is still 1720mAh and can be charged quickly if necessary. By the way, GoPro recommends using a microSD card with V30 or UHS-3 support in order to ensure optimal performance in all operating modes.

The new GP2 processor is expected to provide a major boost in performance with support for 5.3K videos shot at 60fps, or 4K video recording at 120fps. Both these will be an improvement from 5K30 and 4K60 on last year’s flagship. The leak suggests that GoPro Hero Black 10 will also be able to record videos at 2.7K and 240fps for even more motion control but at reduced resolution.

The Hero 9 Black was unveiled on September 16 2020 and the Hero 8 Black the October before that. The Hero 7 Black also came along in Autumn, launching on September 20 2018. For this reason, we’d expect the Hero 10 Black to show up at some point between mid-September and the beginning of October of 2021. 

The new GoPro Hero10 Black will probably be officially presented on September 15th and will cost a proud 539.99 euros without the GoPro Cloud annual subscription. This increases the price by as much as 50 euros compared to the previous model. One possible reason for this could be the poor availability of various components and materials as a result of the chip crisis and bottlenecks.

Pricing for other markets, such as the United Kingdom, the United States and Asia, has not yet been revealed.

Other features include:

  • A hydrophobic lens coating for protection and minimized reflections
  • A 2.27-inch touch display with improved sensitivity and a higher refresh rate
  • A 132-degree field of view that extends to 155 degrees with the Max Lens Mod
  • A 1720 mAh battery
  • Complete compatibility with GoPro Hero 9 accessories thanks to an unchanged chassis
  • Lower weight at 153 g

GoPro HERO 10 Pre-launch Rumors

The Hero 10 Black is the rumored successor to the GoPro Hero 9 Black and competes with the likes of Insta350 and DJI in the action camera market. 

Now that the images of the action camera have been leaked online, we should expect the company to reveal more details and a launch date in the coming days.

The rumour is believable because GoPro Hero Black 9 was also launched last year in September. It was priced in India at Rs 49,500 and has been available since late October. The GoPro Hero 9 Black features a new 23.6-megapixel image sensor and is powered by the GP1 processor from the previous model. It also saw an improvement in the battery department.

 "The dual imaging module may be used to capture image at wide range of zoom levels while maintaining high resolution, where the first lens assembly with a relatively wide field of view is used at low zoom levels and the second lens assembly with a relatively narrow field of view is used to capture at high zoom levels."

Just a bit of history

GoPro was founded in 2002 by Nick Woodman—a surfer, skier and motorsports enthusiast in search of a better way to film himself and his friends surfing. What started with a 35mm camera and a wrist strap made from old wetsuits and plastic scraps has grown into an international company that has sold over 26 million GoPro cameras in more than 100 countries.

But it’s the millions of passionate GoPro users around the globe who bring the magic to life. They humble and inspire us every day with incredible creativity that helps us see the world in an all-new way—and fires us up to keep creating the most awesome, innovative products possible.
