DJI Mavic 2 drone leak confirms Pro and Zoom models

DJI Mavic 2 drone leak confirms Pro and Zoom models

Leaked last week and now confirmed by DJI to CNET, the Mavic 2 is real, and it's going to come in two very different formats.

The prominent ad in the catalogue was spotted and captured by Twitter users, and appears to confirm some details of previous leaks about the drone, and dispel others (such as a removable gimbal).

Shared features of the two models include 360-degree collision awareness system, a top speed of over 70 KM/h, and a long 31-minute flight time. 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.

DJI was set to announce the new Mavic 2 on July 18th, but that event was unexpectedly postponed and the drone has yet to be officially unveiled. The Pro will hold a Hasselblad camera with a 1-inch sensor and no zoom, while the Zoom will, obviously, include a 2X optical zoom lens to aid aerial close-ups.

The flying specs look to be getting a subtle but useful boost over the Mavic Pro Platinum.




The description in the catalog states that the DJI Mavic 2 will be a small and powerful 1080p drone that can fly up to 20m/s (~45mph compared to 40mph in the original Mavic Pro) for up to 31 minutes (compared to 27 min in the original) and transmit video from 8km (~5mi) away.

A DJI spokesperson commented "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".

Anyway, what does the leak tell us about DJI's new drones?

One thing we don't know, however, is price. However, it seems to lack a zoom lens. "This early look just hints at the many exciting features and capabilities DJI will announce at the proper time".

We'll have to wait and see, but if all of this comes to fruition there are some big product launches on the way from DJI.
