Published On 20-March-2017
It has been a rough few years for GoPro, along with the consumers stubbornly refusing to renovate their action cameras quite as often as their smartphones, and the efforts of the company to spread out into other markets not always going to plan.
Whatsoever GoPro has make a plan to get itself back on its feet, it actually includes a new Hero6 model, the executive of GoPro confirmed in an earnings call in the beginning of this week, although for the time being there is confirmation regarding launching schedule and any specifications.
The Hero5 has been with us since September 2016, bringing along with it yet another bump in video and image quality, and a built-in touchscreen for the first time on the leading model in the range.
The same is expected to be launched in September 2017
Holding out for a Hero
Meanwhile, GoPro launched its latest cameras it also escorted in an auto-sync cloud service for captured content known as GoPro Plus, which will set you back $4.99 a |month if you live in the United States. GoPro says that there is a "high preservation rate" among early adopters and so the service would be growing away from the US "in the coming months".
The chief executive officer of GoPro Nick Woodman also confirmed that multiple cameras as well as accessories will be appearing from the company over the next year, however it is not clear how many of these would be brand new products and which would be upgrades to existing kit.
It is actually not surprising that GoPro has a Hero6 in the works however it is notable that the company is not making a strategy to slow down its production cycle in the wake of its Karma drone troubles.
Though, we will have to wait a few more months yet before we know anything else regarding what GoPro has in its store.
