GoPro CEO Nick Woodman teased the existence of the HERO6 back in February, saying that the camera would arrive in 2017.

But GoPro has now confirmed that they will launch its Hero 6 (Black) Action Camera this fall (September).

In addition to confirming the 4K 60fps news, the photo shows that the Hero6 will also be able to shoot Full-HD 1080p video at 240fps slow motion, and the camera will sell for $650 CAD, or approximately $500 USD when it’s released.

The GoPro Hero 6 Black may also be the first camera to get rid of Ambarella, the chipset that powered previous devices developed by GoPro. It could be replaced by a powerful custom processor tagged as “GP1.” This will be one of the Hero 6 Black’s notable specs that will set the camera apart from the previous GoPro devices.

Here’s a summary of the expected specification:

  1. Recording up to 4K at 60fps
  2. Faster slo-mo: 1080p at 240fps
  3. Custom-designed GoPro GP1 processor
  4. Waterproof to 10m without a case
