We are getting closer to the rumored reveal of GoPro's next-gen Hero camera, with two versions to reportedly be unveiled soon: Hero4 Black, and Hero4 Silver Edition. The two cameras will have differences between them, with upgrades on their predecessor, and some downgrades, too.




Starting with the Hero4 Silver Edition, which will sport a touch LCD on the back, which was previously an accessory you had to purchase separately. The sensor inside of the Hero4 Silver Edition is capable of shooting 4K video, or 3840x2160 at 15FPS, 2.7K at 30fps, 1440p at 48fps, 1080p at 60fps, 960p at 100fps, and 720p at 120fps. It will also take 12-megapixel still shots, and is waterproof at up to 40m (or 131 feet).




The Hero4 Black Edition is pretty much the same, but it ditches the touch LCD on the back for upping its 4K shooting capabilities to 30FPS, up from 15FPS. With the rumored unveiling date of the new Hero4 cameras being October 8... the same date that HTC is said to be unveiling its new action camera.
