New high-end DJI Mavic 2 drones revealed in print leak

New high-end DJI Mavic 2 drones revealed in print leak

Argos added in a statement: "Unfortunately we were informed of the delay in the launch of the DJI Mavic 2 after our new catalogues were printed". While there's no mention of recording capabilities we can not imagine anything less than 4K.

Little news exists about the Enterprise, speculation around what the payloads shown in the leak may be ranges from a large LED panel to a speaker or a sensor. How a major retailer could inadvertently publish an ad before an official launch is unclear - either Argos mistakenly jumped the gun or DJI failed to inform the store of the cancellation of the launch event.

The "Zoom" version will have a 2x optical zoom lens (24-48mm equiv) and the ability to do dolly zooms.

The Pro series will catch up on some of the features released in the Mavic Air, including omnidirectional object avoidance. The current Mavic Pro and Mavic Pro Platinum only have downward and forward facing obstacle detection.

This latest revelation puts to bed any rumours that Kate has been feeling "threatened" by the latest addition to the Windsor clan. "They seem to be her closest friends and partners in the official set-up".

But it's still the first time a sensor of this kind will feature in a drone this capable and small.

We don't have any information on the pricing for either version. Now, more details have emerged about its successor, which will apparently arrive in two specs.

What has DJI had to say about the leak?

"This pre-printed catalogue was scheduled before we postponed our See the Bigger Picture event to ensure we can deliver high-quality, cutting-edge technology to our customers according to our standard of innovation". The appearance of the Mavic 2 in the catalog could mean the drone's debut is imminent, or that it was supposed to come right after the cancelled launch event, but wasn't pulled in time. It doesn't look so different from the new drones revealed by Argos, but it seems to have been created to handle heavier payloads and swap out different attachments for commercial flights. We're not sure to what extent DJI's partnership with Hasselblad is that resulted in this camera, so this is something we'll just have to wait and see.
