Hero 5 capture app preview resolutions (Android)

So at the moment I have a hero 4 session.. I love it but the only downside is that the capture app doesn't show preview while recording at certain resolutions like 1080p60 .. it's OK on 1080p30 .. also OK on 720p60.. but I don't wanna record in 720p nor do I wanna record in 30fps .. so question is .. on hero 5 (black or session) which resolutions allow u to see preview on app WHILE it recording .. preferably on Android .. all my devices share the problem on the 4 so it's a camera limitation .. go pro knows it .. but I found nothing on the hero 5 before I buy it .

i "think" it'll still be the same, the problem is the high amount of data needed to transfer quickly to enable preview at the higher fps's etc. Most phones can't handle all the information so GoPro have locked preview down to the lower resolution/fps's

Based on GoPro website information. It should be supported for your session as well.
See this link https://gopro.com/help/articles/Ques...opy-in-Capture

Does your session 4 have the latest firmware update? Could that be the issue?

Cheers,
