With a powerful GoPro Hero 5 release, action camera fans are now wondering what GoPro will offer next for its next installment. A more exciting and feature-packed action camera could be introduced in the GoPro Hero 6.

Best features and specs

A review of the GoPro Hero 5 Black revealed that its features are high-end and commendable. These offerings include a waterproof design, voice control, touchscreen, image stabilization and amazing photo and video quality.

All fans and users expect that GoPro will maintain or improve these specifications for the next release. On the other hand, the action camera maker is also anticipated to improve on the weaknesses of the GoPro Hero 5.

Areas to improve on

The GoPro Hero 5 is said to be short in term of battery life when using GPS and WiFi. For those who want to automatically upload their pictures, they still need to pay an additional $5 a month for the GoPro Plus.

Another observation from a user proved that the battery of the device easily drains out even only after an hour of taking photos and recording video files. Also, the poor response in the touch and voice commands of the phone was also noticeable.

GoPro may also need to address the battery heat up issue of the device as users noted that it gets really hot when used for a prolonged period and when it is linked to a smartphone for file download. These are the many issues that need to be resolved when the GoPro 6 releases hopefully next year.

Price details

For the price of $399, the public expect that there are less concerns with the GoPro Hero 5 but it still abounds with problems. The upcoming release will be a chance for the company to do it right in a lot of areas. What other features should the GoPro Hero 6 introduce to action camera fans?
