  • DJI Mavic 2 drone leak confirms Pro and Zoom models

Details of an unannounced new drone from market leader DJI have been revealed early in a UK-based store's catalog. As far as other details about the drones, the models should offer up to 31 minutes of flight time, omnidirectional obstacle sensing, top flight speed of 45 miles per hour, and more.

The leaks emerged after Argos failed to remove pre planned content that was not released due to DJI moving their launch events at short notice.

Whether the delay of the announcement was due to the announcement of rival Parrot's Anafi drone we'll never know, but as that drone features a zoom lens it is possible DJI have worked quickly behind the scenes to incorporate the same technology in the new Mavic 2 Zoom.

From the ad it appears we can expect two drones, the Mavic 2 Zoom and Mavic 2 Pro. In the catalog, there is no mention of the recording capabilities, though we would not rule out 4K recording features.

Anyway, what does the leak tell us about DJI's new drones? Dolly Zoom (zoom version only). And second, the introduction of a new Pro model with a much larger image sensor.

I thought it was likely he would get a penalty but I really wanted to pass him on track, which fortunately I could do on the last lap.

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

There's no pricing information in the Argos catalog, but we'd be surprised if these new Mavic Pros came in at under $1,000.

What has DJI had to say about the leak?

The firm did schedule an event for this month, but postponed it. "We look forward to giving our fans an incredible drone experience as soon as we can".

DJI is probably the biggest name in relatively affordable but super awesome drones right now and it's getting ready to update its Mavic drone with the predictably named Mavic 2. 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.
