This past May, GoPro pushed that release date all the way back to winter of 2016. It now plans to release Karma alongside the Hero 5 — GoPro’s first flagship camera in two years — in time for the holidays.
GoPro will unveil the Karma drone on September 19th
We first learned that GoPro was making a quadcopter in May of 2015 at Code Conference, where CEO Nick Woodman called it “the ultimate GoPro accessory.” Back then, the company promised that the product — later revealed to be called Karma — would be released in the first half of 2016.
It also seems like a good bet that the Hero 5 could be unveiled on the same day as Karma. In a piece published this week about GoPro’s expansion into making its own shows, Variety says that “GoPro is expected to officially unveil its next-generation consumer camera, dubbed the Hero 5, in the coming weeks.”
