GoPro Hero 5 Release Date And Rumors Update: GoPro Hero And Karma Drone To Hit The Market This Year

By R. Siva Kumar - 22 Mar '16 23:21PM

You can gear up for the two major devices that will be released by GoPro this year---particularly the Karma Drone and the GoPro Hero 5. While the Karma Drone will be out in May or June, the second device will be with the world in the second half of the year in 2016, October.

The plan last year was to release GoPro Hero 5 in early 2016. But reports indicate that the first focus will be the Karma Drone, followed by the GoPro Hero 5 for Thanksgiving and the holiday season, said vinereport.

The upcoming outdoor camera traits may include "portability, connectivity, and a more seamless use." GoPro Hero 5 will be about 50 percent smaller and 40 percent lighter than its earlier version. While it will focus on connectivity, probably through cloud-based storage and an enhanced Bluetooth functionality, it will also be compatible with the Karma Drone in order to increase users' overall experience.

It is also rumoured to have an improved 8K video quality, a dual lens camera for better photo outputs, and the capability to shoot 60 frames per second. There are speculations that it will have superior waterproof features, even if it is 60 meters deep.

Moreover, GoPro Hero 5 will possess a more powerful chipset, and a battery life that will last up to 24 hours with a single charge.

Both devices will be launched with an eye on the company's sales targets. Last year, the company stocks dropped almost 80 percent due to weak sales and poor product launches. " The company went public with a very large IPO that made the company a lot of money, however it failed to keep consumer confidence up after the IPO and the stock dropped like a rock," according to masterherald.

Will the company meet its targets this year? Customers will have to wait and see whether the devices really prove to be as good as they are believed to be.
