GoPro’s rumored Hero 11 Black may not be the only camera the company is releasing this year. Leaked images shared by WinFuture indicate that GoPro is preparing a smaller surprise resembling a modern version of the now-discontinued Session action cams.

The device, supposedly dubbed the Hero 11 Black Mini, follows GoPro’s goals of expanding its camera lineup. It features a large front camera sensor in addition to a single button for Bluetooth connectivity and folding “fingers” on the bottom for mounting. As the name implies, the Mini looks like a shrunken version of the upcoming Hero 11 Black, except it doesn’t have any displays on the front or back of the device.

Notably, GoPro’s lineup of Session cameras — the last of which was released in 2016 — had no screens and a more compact design, but that’s where the similarities between the Session and the so-called Hero Mini seem to end. While the Mini takes the design from the Hero 11 Black camera it’s named after, the Session is a small cube with a camera that takes up the entire front of the device, and it didn’t look like the other Hero at the time. devices. GoPro eventually withdrew the Session from its lineup when it introduced its Hero 7 cameras in 2018.

There are no details on how powerful GoPro plans to make the camera sensor and the Mini’s other internals. While the look of the standard GoPro Hero 11 Black will reportedly remain unchanged, it may come with an upgraded sensor capable of taking 27-megapixel stills and 24.7-megapixel stills from videos. It is also rumored to retain the same 5.3K video recording capabilities at 60 fps (or 4K at 120 fps). WinFutureExpect an almost as powerful device in a smaller package for the Mini, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
