Yi has finally launched a V2 follow up to their popular dashcam. This is the highest resolution dashcam available from a well-known manufacturer.
This new "2.7K King" version doubles the recording pixels to 2.7K (2688×1520 30FPS) and uses H.265 (HEVC) encoding for 30% better compression.
Yi estimates each minute of H.265 recording at 2.7K (30FPS) should consume about 120MB. This is less than the 130MB required if using H.264 for 1080P30.
