Yi 4K+ action camera gets official with 60fps video recording

Vlad, 06 January 2017

Following up on its widely praised original action camera and then the 4K-capable model introduced last year, Yi has taken the wraps off its third such device, simply called the Yi 4K+ action camera. The CES unveiling wasn't an unexpected move from the Xiaomi-backed company, since it's teased the move beforehand.

As is obvious from its name, the 4K+ still tops out at 4K video recording, but this action camera comes with a first: support for shooting 4K at 60fps. That's a yet-unmatched feat, and something that might help the Chinese upstart even more in its battle with the likes of GoPro.

The Yi 4K+ uses the 14nm Ambarella H2 SoC which has a 1.2 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU. The action camera has "3D" electronic image stabilization built-in, and USB Type-C connectivity. Unfortunately its price hasn't been announced, nor a release date. However, we assume that it will be more expensive than the Yi 4K sans 60fps capabilities, which would put it somewhere in the $300-350 price range.
