It has been three months since the FCC published details about GoPro's next action camera, and now a new leak has filled in the gaps about the upcoming device. Unsurprisingly, GoPro's next camera will be called the Hero 9 Black, although the company will probably stylise it as the HERO9 Black, instead.

Regardless, Roland Quandt and WinFuture have published a series of marketing renders of the device, including two cases with which it can be paired. The design presented matches a leak that appeared online last month. Externally, the biggest change for this year's GoPro Hero is the inclusion of a colour front display. The new display is larger than the one that GoPro included on the Hero 8 Black, and it may open the Hero 9 Black up to being more versatile, especially for those who want to shoot selfie-style videos.

Little has changed on the back of the GoPro Hero, and the folding arms from last year's model return. WinFuture states that the new model will support 5K, which is another notable change from the Hero 8 Black. Presumably, this will be 5K at 30/60 FPS, as the current GoPro Hero tops out at 4K/60 FPS.

WinFuture and Quandt have published renders of a few accessories that will be released for the Hero 9 Black too. It is unknown when GoPro will announce the next Hero action camera, but a September or October launch would seem likely based on past releases. The price of the Hero 9 Black has not been revealed either, but we would expect GoPro to at least match the US$399 launch price of the Hero 8 Black.
