FCC has offered a first look at the next GoPro action camera, possibly up to five months ahead of its launch. Spotted by DroneDJ  the camera has the model number SPBL1 and has been certified with a 1,720 mAh battery. Currently undergoing Engineering Validations Tests (EVT), the SPBL1 has also been certified to support Bluetooth 4.2 and 802.11 ac Wi-Fi.

The documents that the FCC published on May 6 have revealed other aspects about the upcoming camera, too. The document "Lable and label location" confirms that the settings menu has been re-ordered and refined with larger icons among other minor changes. GoPro has also changed "Touch Display" to  "Displays" potentially hinting at a new direction for its action cameras. DroneDJ asserts that the "Displays" icon suggests the next GoPro may have a "rear and front display", which would be new.

According to the documentation, the FCC tested the SPBL1 in March. GoPro has requested that the FCC observe a short-term confidentiality agreement of 180 days from April 30, 2020, meaning that the camera will be released by October 27. The model number or FCC documents do not reveal whether this camera is a successor to the Hero 8 or Max, though.
