Yi, a popular alternative to the more expensive GoPro, will unveil a new action camera at the upcoming CES 2017. Dubbed as Yi 4K+, the gadget will be an upgrade to the original Yi 4K action camera.
he Xiaomi-backed Yi’s upcoming model can shoot 4k video at 60 frames per second. The Yi 4K+ could release with the company’s new Erida drone which supposedly can hit speeds of up to 75 miles per hour for up to 40 minutes.

With up to two hours of battery life, the Yi 4K has a 12MP Sony sensor that delivers 4K video at 30fps and has wide-angle lens with F2.8 aperture for photos. It also packs dual microphones, 5GHz Wi-Fi connectivity and electronic stabilization. The action camera was priced at $250.
