GoPro annual hardware event confirmed ahead of Hero 8 & GoPro Max unveiling
GoPro has finally confirmed the date of its annual product launch, where it is expected to unveil the GoPro Hero 8 and GoPro Max. The event will start at 06:00 PDT (UTC -7) on October 1, with the company hosting a live stream on YouTube. GoPro has also tweeted two short videos teasing the Hero 8, leaked marketing images of which we reported earlier this month.
Among numerous action shots, the videos confirm that GoPro has overhauled the design of the Hero 7 successor, including adding two fold-out mounts that WinFuture claims will be called "Floating Fingers". We expect GoPro to announce the GoPro Max too, which will replace the GoPro Fusion 360. The GoPro Max will also feature the new fold-out mounts according to leaked marketing images, which GoPro will pair with tripods and selfie sticks among other accessories.
However, while both cameras are expected to be powered by a new GoPro GP2 processor, only the Hero 8 will support several new hot-swappable accessories, including a second screen. GoPro has been scant on details currently, but we shall keep you updated if we anything new claims to light before October 1. Alternatively, please see our previous GoPro Hero 8 and GoPro Max articles that we have linked below for a look at the photos of both devices that have come to light so far.
