As we near the middle of August, Photo Rumors has secured a set of leaked specifications and images for the rumored GoPro Hero8. Apparently, the redesigned action cam will sport several new accessories and the ability to shoot 4K video at 120fps.
The rumor site published its latest findings just a few hours ago, sourcing these rumors to China.
According to their report, the Hero8 will feature a new design with optional housing, the three accessories seen in the photo above—a microphone, an LED light and an external screen—an improved “GP2” processor, and the ability to shot 4K video at 120fps or Full HD at 480fps. The camera will allegedly be announced sometime in September.

Previous reports and comments by CEO Nick Woodman seem to support this leak. In May, Woodman said the company “is planning for a refreshed lineup at all price points,” and rumors that the Hero8 would use a new GP2 processor to deliver improved stabilization and imaging performance have been swirling for weeks.
Fortunately, we won’t have to wait long to see if these specs are accurate. The GoPro Hero8 and other offerings from the action cam maker are rumored to arrive sometime next month.
