Fusion - Supported Devices

With breath-taking 5.2K/30 and 3K/60 spherical video resolutions, state-of-the-art stitching algorithms and GoPro’s industry-leading image quality, Fusion truly pushes the limits of what is possible on a mobile device. Accordingly, in order to get the best experience, we strongly recommend using the newest mobile hardware you have available. 

Below is a list of mobile devices that meet the hardware requirements for compatibility with Fusion. Please keep in mind that, particularly on Android, other factors present on the device (such as GPU libraries or region and carrier-specific SOCs) can affect performance, even when minimum hardware requirements are satisfied.

Usability Information
Neither iOS nor Android media gallery applications (iOS Photos, etc) natively support the 360 media created by Fusion. Therefore, we cannot save content directly to the those applications. Content will be saved in the Local Media section of your GoPro App. As such, deleting the GoPro application will remove this content from your device. 

When viewing videos from your GoPro camera (on SD card), you are viewing an LRV file (low resolution video). When media is saved to Local Media in the GoPro App, you are viewing a full resolution video. Photos are shown at full resolution regardless of whether you view them in the Camera or Local Media section of the GoPro App.

Sharing Limitations
360 Video sharing is a resource-intensive activity that demands a lot from your mobile device. As such, there are limitations to the duration of clips that are shareable via the GoPro app. Current limitations are:
  • Youtube: 90 second clips or less
  • Facebook: 30 second clips or less and photos
