GoPro has launched the new Hero 9 Black action camera with a slew of improvements. The company usually announces its new products during this time of the year. Which is why it was hardly surprising to see them stick with a routine schedule. The new Hero action camera packs an improved 23.6-megapixel sensor that offers 5K video recording at 30fps. In addition to this, you can click 20-megapixel still photos using the action camera as well. Also Read - OnePlus could bring 8K 960fps video recording with OxygenOS 11 update

And since GoPro Hero 9 is an action camera, it comes with a rugged design. That is durable against water up to 10 meters. So, you can easily dive into the pool carrying one of these. The GoPro Hero 9 Black comes loaded with a 1,720mAh battery, which is almost 41% larger than the 1,220mAh battery found on the GoPro Hero 8 Black. This may mean an increase in battery life and you can now charge it via USB Type C port.
GoPro Hero 9 Black will be available in most countries from this onwards. But for those in India, the latest generation of the action camera will be on shelves from late October onwards. The GoPro Hero 9 Black in the country is priced at Rs 49,500 which puts it higher than the previous Hero version.
