Usually, about this time of year, we start to get photo and information leaks about new GoPro Cameras that could be released in the fall. Several months ago we got our first information about a new GoPro Hero 7 Black with a filing to do with Bluetooth. There was a lot of debate on Reddit about what the information meant but really no concrete information. A few days ago we got our first supposed leaked images of the upcoming GoPro Hero 7 Black. Who knows if these are legitimate or fakes, the timing does work with a possible release of a new GoPro about 6 weeks away.
If these images are indeed real then what we know for certain is that it will have the same form factor as the GoPro Hero 5/6 Black and the new budget Hero that was released earlier in the spring. I myself am glad they did not update the cameras form factor as it will be more compatible with existing products. One thing I am curious about is if they will make the Hero 7 compatible with the Karma Drone? Considering theoretically it will fit in the cradle for the Karma Grip/Drone it should work with some simple firmware updates for the drone.
GoPro Hero 7 Release Date
Historically GoPro tends to release their new flagship cameras near the end of September with an event to announce the new line up. As of today’s date, there is no official announcement or event scheduled but I will update this post once more information is available and an event date has been announced.
There are many theory’s about what will be released this fall. There was a rumor floating around that there will be 3 new cameras released or 3 new products. This could be a camera and 2 new mounts or 3 new cameras. Perhaps 2 new cameras and a new updated Karma Grip 2. Who knows, but I would personally love to see a brand new GoPro Hero 7 Session released alongside a new Hero 7 Black.
Keep an eye on this page as I will update it as new information becomes available or leaks online.
UPDATE 1 (August 13):
Credit: Goprawn. According to an FCC report, GoPro will be releasing at least 2 new Camera in the Hero 7 line These will be entry-level cameras.
1st one is dark grey colored SPTM1(Version S) S representing “Silver Model” it will have GPS
2nd light grey SPTM1(Version W), W representing “White Model” No GPS and lower resolutions.
So presumably there will be a 3rd camera the Hero 7 Black and this will be the new full-featured flagship camera. But little to no information is available yet. This new camera will most likely have an updated version of the GP1 chip possibly a GP2 chip.
Here are some possibly leaked photos of the new GoPro Hero 7 menu system. Some interesting changes if these are legitimate.
