There is a rumor spreading now that GoPro Hero 9 is going to be here very soon. I am also excited to hear this news just like you, but I recently bought a Hero 8 and I would like to check whether is this upgrade really relevant for me. So, here in this post, I am going to share my views on the so-called Hero 9. Let’s start.
GoPro Hero 9
If the rumors are true, and then the first thing I like about GoPro hero 9 is that its front display. This will definitely help people do Vlogs like me. But what if you had already bought Display Mode for your Hero 8? I personally feel that GoPro could actually introduce this front display with Heor 8 itself instead of introducing display mods, this could have helped a lot of people like me. I didn’t buy the media mods and other accessories for my GoPro Hero 8, but if I get a chance to choose between GoPro Hero 8 with the display mode and GoPro Hero 9 with the front display I will always select GoPro 9. I am a person who doesn’t like to waste time setting up things.
I am sure that GoPro was able to sell a lot of display mods with their Hero 8, so according to them, it was a good business deal. What do you think, please comment your thoughts on this? Another rumor is that the new hero 9 will have 5K support the coming future, wow, isn’t that amazing? There is no official confirmation yet, thus we need to wait till it is out.
By seeing the images leaked, it is evident that there are no possible changes in the main display at the backside.
Luckily, are not many external changes to Hero 9, so I am assuming that all the mods that support Hero 8, will also support Hero 9. As we have not heard any technical details from the company yet, treat all of this information with caution. I can also see that there will also be some new mounts available.
It is not certain how much the Hero 9 costs but my guess would be something between 400$ – 450$. I know that you are eagerly waiting for the official confirmation, just like me, unfortunately, we will have to wait a few more months, if all the rumors are true, the company may launch Hero 9 in the first quarter of 2021.
To get all the updates from GoPro on time, following the official social media handles wouldn’t be a bad idea. I would also recommend subscribing to their newsletter. All these links are given on the official website (gopro.com)
Other Possible Specifications of Hero 9 Black
To summarize, these are the known facts (maybe) about hero 9 for now.
- Hyper Smooth 3.0
- Time Warp 3.0
- 5K/30 FPS Video Recording
- 4K/60 FPS Video Recording
- 1080p/240 FPS Video Recording
- Waterproof up to 10 meters
- Super Photo + HDR
- 1080p Live Streaming
- Voice Control
GoPro Hero 9 is going to be an Amazing Action camera just like all the other GoPros. But I think with only the changes mentioned in the rumors, it is not worth upgrading to Hero 9 if you have a GoPro hero 8. If you don’t own a GoPro, then it is going to a good buy. I am not yet decided about the upgrade, I will wait for the official confirmation and if the company gives any exchange offers, I will consider that. I will write about it when I get it. See ya!
