It was a strange month for DJI. The Chinese drone giant had planned a major press event on July 1
The most interesting leak came in the form of an Argos catalog. Apparently Argos had already printed its biannual catalog, complete with two new DJI drones – the Mavic 2 Pro and the Mavic 2 Zoom – before the company pushed back the release of the new models. Appearance:
The DJI site states that the new Mavic 2 Pro would come with a 1-inch Hasselblad CMOS sensor designed for a drone size is pretty big. (The sensor is probably made by Sony.) Meanwhile, the Mavic 2 Zoom comes with a 2x optical zoom (24mm to 48mm), which is a completely new function for a DJI drone. The copy also says that the drones will fly up to 45 miles per hour, offering a 31-minute flight time, a five-mile range, and "omnidirectional obstacle avoidance." No pricing information was listed. However, DJI confirmed the existence of the pictures.
"This preprinted catalog was planned before we moved our" See the bigger picture "event to ensure that we can deliver cutting-edge technology to our customers in line with our innovation standard," said a DJI spokesman for Gizmodo. "This early glimpse just hints at the many exciting features and capabilities that DJI will announce at the right time and we look forward to providing our fans with an incredible drone experience as quickly as possible."
But wait, it gives more. A separate leak appeared on the German DJI website and featured a picture of a drone called the Mavic 2 Enterprise Edition. This aircraft looks very much like the Mavic 2 Pro, except it may be a bit more powerful. That's hard to say, as we only see the new Mavic 2 drones folded in the Argos catalog, but other leaked images of the Mavic 2 Enterprise Edition from early July indicate that this model has higher payloads for commercial flights , A few pictures show new attachments of DJI brands that are on the Mavic 2 Enterprise Edition. One of the payloads seems to be a speaker or a sensor, while the other looks like an LED beacon.
What is this? all in common? It is unclear. Many people have expected DJI to upgrade the Mavic Pro this year, especially since Mavic Air made its debut six months ago and the Mavic Pro is now two years old. The idea that DJI would release an enterprise drone with the very portable form factor of a Mavic drone also seems very meaningful. After all, DJI has been pushing its division forward in recent months. However, until the official announcement we do not know what the new Mavic 2 Enterprise Edition can afford or how much it costs. The same goes for the other two Mavic Sequel drones.
DJI says it has not yet chosen a new date for its big press event. When DJI postponed the planned event earlier this month, DJI said it did so because the company wanted to "ensure that we could exceed our customers' expectations of our technology by the time the event unfolded" – something of a kind to say Sounds drones did not work properly when the event came. DJI says it will reschedule the event soon.
In the meantime, many people complain online because they've seen the new DJI drones, and they look cool, but they can not buy any yet. I am inclined to agree with this opinion. I would love to fly these cool, new shark drones! But I can not now. Leaks are cool because you can take a look at things before they become available. They are also kind of unfair because you can not do anything about it.
