It’s been a while since GoPro came out with a new action camera and if the latest reports are to be believed, the company has a new Hero action camera in the pipeline. If you’ve been waiting for a new GoPro camera with the ability to record 4K video at 60 frames per second, perhaps you should hold off purchasing any existing model for the new Hero6 Black.

According to a leak spotted by Photo Rumors, the GoPro Hero6 Black is going to have support for 4K video recording at 60 frames per second. Its predecessor, the Hero5, could record 4K video but at 30 frames per second.

The GoPro Hero6 camera leak stems from a photo that’s circulating online. The photo is apparently of the retail packaging for this new camera. There are no further details about this camera available at this point in time.

The company’s CEO Nick Woodman did confirm earlier this year in February that GoPro has the Hero6 in the pipeline but he didn’t reveal more information about it. Details about the technical specs of this camera are slim right now.

It’s expected that the new camera will retain its predecessor’s design and that it’s going to be released by the end of this month. The Hero5 is currently being sold for $400 so we can expect the Hero6 to cost about the same.
