GoPro Hero 7 successor expected
GoPro is expected to announce the successor to its Hero 7 action camera today after teasing the date on its official website.
Leaks suggest that the gadget will come with a new GP2 chip that will improve on-board image stabilisation, as well as a 12MP sensor and better image quality. The device is also set to get a redesign and added accessory options, such as front-facing display monitors and an external flash.
GoPro has a new challenger in the action camera market following the release of the Osmo Action by drone market leader DJI.
