i'm hoping for some fantastic addition that hasn't been leaked out yet, at the minute it looks like it should of been called Hero 6+. Going by the info we've got it does make you wonder whether to bother getting it straight away (although i probably will anyway)

Hero Fusion might be cancelled.
The GoPro Fusion may well become the next caustically. In my opinion Fusion is just too far behind the 360-camera technology to last. The Fusion post processing is just too slow and too complex to get significant market share in the 360 market place. GoPro owned Kolor when Fusion was developed. Kolor had developed mature closely related software technology. GoPro was unable to to leverage the significant base of software and experience to fully develop a 360 product. GoPro’s response to Fusion when questioned in the last few months has generally been a weak response, “Fusion is doing fine”
Fusion was a late entry into the 360-camera market. When it was introduced into the market almost exactly a year ago. Fusion was described in reviews as good 360 imaging and less than favorable reviews software support. The Fusion entered the market with incomplete and delayed software support.
The 360-camera market has been exploding with innovative 360 technology that has not been matched with GoPro support for the Fusion 360 camera. The closing of Kolor signals that GoPro is unlikely to invest more in the Fusion 360 technology.

As I have pointed out earlier the PHOTO+VIDEO mode is an Ambarella Inc patent. As long as the patent is effective and Gopro uses their own processor (made by Soxionext) this feature will not return in a new Hero camera.
