A sneak peek at the DJI Mavic 2 amazes with great new features
A preview of DJI's awesome quadcopter that’s coming out soon
Drones are definitely the fad of the day, and DJI is associated with some of the best products in the consumer niche. Some of the first impressive innovations it has been introducing in the recent years were offered in 2016, when Mavic Pro sported portably packed 4K video. When Spark came about, that video feature was missing, but some other perks made it shine in its own way. In 2017, Mavic Air surprised customers with a great package of features, and is now a sure leader in the travel drone segment.
There’s always a drive at the company to do more and better, and an event was supposed to be held in the US on 18 July, 2018 for DJI to share something new, along with its vision of the industry in the ever-changing modern world, or, as they put it, “the bigger picture.”
Well, the date has been changed to a later one, and while no one was exactly sure that it was supposed to be centered on a big reveal of a new drone to succeed the Mavic, there was a leak just this weekend. It brought forth what was named as the image of the next major consumer drone DJI’s coming out with, and revealed some awesome new features.
The photo appeared first on the DroneDJ site, showing a clear image of a device with ‘Mavic 2’ printed on the propeller arm with folding capabilities. The device is very similar to Mavic Pro as far as color and general shape are concerned, yet the design does have extra sleekness and enhanced aerodynamic qualities.
There may be a removable camera gimbal, similar to the one sported by its competitor, GoPro Karma, if the image of the parts laid out on the table is indeed a relevant one. “The bigger picture” in the postponed event’s slogan may be read as a sign of an upcoming wide-angle lens add-on, which is already included in some of the Phantom series devices.
There are also some indications that the awaited drone may now have sensors both in the back and on the bottom, in addition to the front and side sensors of the previous models, which would make it that much easier for it to avoid obstacles on all sides. This rather unique point may make the upcoming device very popular, with DJI’s solid reputation for excellent obstacle avoidance characteristics even on previous drones, which have fewer sensors.
DJI is not commenting on the leak yet, but there may be more information in the near future. A confirmation of this rumor would make any drone lover very excited and eager to see the upcoming device.Source
