Talking about the GoPro Hero11 Mini may have excited session owners – there hasn’t been an update to the smallest action camera in over half a decade. Information released (in WinFuture) shows that the Mini can’t be as small as the Session models.
On the plus side, it will be just as powerful as the upcoming GoPro Hero11 Black flagship. It appears to have the same 27MP image sensor capable of recording video at a resolution of 5,616 x 3,744 pixels.

Both 11-series models use last year’s GP2 processor, which captures 5.3K video at 60fps, 4K at 120fps and 2.7K at 240fps, and can also handle live streams at 1080p. HyperSmooth stabilization will be updated to v5.0, TimeWarp will remain at v3.0.
As you may have noticed, the Hero11 Mini has no display – not on the front, not on the back. We don’t know the battery capacity yet, but the lack of a display (and possibly a smaller battery) is what makes the Mini less black.

The rough dimensions are 50 x 50 mm and about 40 mm thick (note that there are two mounting points – one on the bottom as usual and the new one on the back). For comparison, the GoPro10 Black measures 71.8 x 50.8 x 33.6mm, while the Hero5 measures 38 x 38 x 38mm. Also, the Session had a small display on top – not big enough for a viewfinder, but enough to show recording mode, recording time and a few icons.
No word yet on pricing. When the Hero5 generation launched, the Hero5 series was not only smaller, but also less powerful and cheaper. The Hero11 Mini will definitely be cheaper than the Black, but probably not as cheap as the session model.
