Other specifications that we already know about the Hero 9 Black is that it will have voice control and will be waterproof to approximately 10 meters.

Like the previous ones, the new camera will take photos in RAW and HDR.
The Hero 9 Black will feature a rear touch screen and a new front screen for easy framing and recording in a vlog style. It also brings TimeWarp 3.0, which has several improvements over 2.0 and webcam mode right out of the box. The model will also be able to broadcast live from the camera in 1080p.
The GoPro Hero 9 Black will feature a 1720mAh battery, almost 41% larger than the current battery found in the GoPro Hero 8 Black with 1220mAh. This may mean an increase in battery life, but there is still no confirmation from the manufacturer. The action camera is likely to support fast charging.
