I hope they have some pre-orders offers and really hope they do not change batteries.

i'm afraid they never have done so far with previous models. The only price offers/discount i've seen over the years is the trade-in scheme, & discounts to clear old stock

Re: GoPro Hero 7 Release Date?

If I remember correctly, last year the store offered a GoPro Jaws with pre-orders, so I guess it was store specific.

Re: GoPro Hero 7 Release Date?

i just hope they've come out with new features that warrant getting it. I will end up with one eventually, but if it turns out to be a rebadged hero 6 then I'll just wait & carry on using what i've got

Re: GoPro Hero 7 Release Date?

I hope so too! I heard rumors that it may have higher megapixels than the 6, which is why I figured I would wait as well!

We know for sure that GoPro will bring back the WHITE - SILVER - BLACK variants. At the 200 - 300 - 400 USD price point.

 

Both the WHITE and SILVER seems to be based on the Hero6 hardware core based on the FCC filings.

 

The Hero7 BLACK will probably be the only significant upgrade form the Hero6 of today. Rumors suggest an upgraded GP chip, maybe designated GP2. GoPro has also filed a lot of new patents lately which might indicate new features to expect. Time will show how much is actually implemented in the Hero7 Black.
