So is there actually going to be a software update that allows the Hero 7 white to record in 1080p rather than 1440p, I'm not a fan of cropping a video down post edit and it seems like a huge waste. Heard conflicting evidence from different people and want to know, because I'll just sell it if so. Been over a month and seems like a huge pain and more trouble that it is worth to consumers for GoPro to do such a thing.

Both HERO7 Silver and White are designed to make life, and capturing it, easier and better looking than ever, which is why these GoPros default to 1440p resolution video—this resolution captures the full width and height of the sensor to fully capture the activity you’re immersed in without worrying about mounting options or positions.
But we have been hearing some desire for options, specifically for those looking to shoot in 1080p. In December, we’ll be launching a firmware update that allows the default video resolution to be either 1440p or 1080p on both HERO7 Silver and White. Until then, the GoPro and Quik apps allow users to create 1080p content from native 1440p captures.

Just got my Gopro White 7 today, my Hero 6 died and can't be resurected so thought I would get the 7 white as it seems simpler! However, I am really confused why it shoots in 1440 resolution! My TV is 1080 why would I want to create a video bigger than this! So we now have to standard convert and crop all media i put into iMovie and other editing software!
Thats pretty dumb!
Come on Gopro lets stick with normal broadcast standards please!
Hurry up with the firmware as I as can't use the thing until then!
