Is DJI About To Release The Mavic 3 Drone? Leaks, Rumors, And Speculation


DJI is rumored to be having a new release in mid-November, and although DJI has yet to confirm, there’s quite a bit of speculation that they will release the new DJI Mavic 3 Pro drone. If the rumors and the leaks are true, then the DJI Mavic 3 Pro will be bigger and more powerful than the previous DJI drones in the Mavic line-up. We’ll go over everything we know about the rumored new release of the Mavic 3 Pro.

Camera Specs


Leaks from the manual show that the DJI Mavic 3 Pro will come with two cameras, the first of which has a 20MP Micro Four Thirds sensor and a 24mm f/2.8-f/11 lens with an adjustable aperture. With a 20MP resolution on the Four Thirds camera, the DJI Mavic 3 should be able to shoot 5.2K video, giving it similar specs to the Inspire 2 Zenmuse X5S.

The other camera is supposed to be a 12MP telephoto camera with a ½” sensor that stretches out to 160mm, giving you a 15-degree field of view as well as the ability to support 7x optical zoom. Compared to the 1-inch sensor of the Mavic 2 Pro, these dual cameras are quite the upgrade.

Flight Specs


Rumor also has it that the Mavic 3 Pro will come with omnidirectional obstacle detection, just like the Mavic 2 Pro. It should also have all of the same intelligent flight modes such as ActiveTrack, QuickShot, Panorama, and Hyperlapse. The word is still out on whether or not it will be an upgraded version of ActiveTrack.

The most notable upgrade to the Mavic 3 Pro from other DJI drones is the 46-minute flight time, which is a staggering 15 minutes longer than the Mavic 2 Pro. It should also have a take-off weight of 920g, which is only 13g more than the Mavic 2 Pro. Leaks also suggest the drone will have direct USB-C charging as well as a microSD card slot. Lastly, it’s been rumored that the drone’s gimbal will automatically lock when the drone is turned off.

Rumours also indicate that DJI is also planning a new version of the DJI Smart Controller. The new DJI Smart Controller V2 to go along with the Mavic 3 Pro. There will be a slew of improvements here, including the most recent version of DJI's OcuSync video transmission technology. It will be capable of transmitting real-time HD video up to a distance of 15 kilometers. The built-in screen would have a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels and a brightness of 1000 nits.

The DJI Mavic 3 Pro Smart Controller will have the option of connecting to the internet via WiFi or an LTE dongle. With a 5000mAh battery at 9.2V and Android as its operating system, there's Bluetooth support as well as a maximum running time of 3 hours.


Models And Price


Leaks from DJI also suggest that the Mavic 3 Pro will come in two separate models: the standard model and the “Cine” model, which comes with its own built-in SSD and DJI’s newest version of its Smart Controller, the DJI Smart Controller V2. This should have a 1Gbps Lightspeed Data Cable and the latest OcuSync 3.0 transmission system, which can transmit HD video up to 15km.

A teaser poster for the DJI Mavic 3 Pro was released on Oct 12 suggesting that the Mavic 3 Pro will launch on November 15th. The basic version of the DJI Mavic 3 should cost around $1,600. However, the Fly More Combo and the Cine Premium Combo are yet to be determined. While we won’t know for sure until DJI announces, it’s safe to say that the Mavic 3 Pro is just around the corner.
