Dual Battery Charger + Battery, is the Battery updated for GoPro 8?

[ New ]

I just received my GoPro 8 and I'm thinking of purchasing Dual Battery Charger + Battery. I wonder if the Battery is an updated version for GoPro 8 or it's the old one. Thanks!

The battery is updated for the GoPro Hero 8, it has a slightly faster discharge rate.  Having said that, the battery for the 5, 6 & 7 is compatible with the 8, they just warn it's possible that at higher frame rates and resolution, that hypersmooth could be affected, but so far there's been no report.
