Just hours after I posted this article reconfirming DJI’s launch date of April 27th, DJI tweets out this official message. In a ten-second clip on Twitter, DJI says: “Up Your Game.” The drone maker also shows the date of April 27th at 9:00 PM EST.
DJI official announcement and teaser video: Up Your Game
The video clip itself shows what seems to be the silhouette of the new DJI Mavic Air 2. Shot from the back toward the front of the drone. The image shows the four battery indicator LEDs. The shot is almost like looking over the hood of a Porsche 911. Although in this case, the bulges in the hood don’t house the headlights, but the forward-facing obstacle avoidance sensors of the DJI Mavic Air 2. The white lines coming into the frame on the left and the right side are most likely propellers. The horizontal line that you can see over the top of the drone is likely the start of the housing or casing of the forward-facing sensors. The four LEDs seem to be positioned on the outside of the on/off switch for the drone.
Minutes after the tweet came out, DJI also sent an email message with the same announcement. However, the subject of the email gives us a little more information. It says:
“Take Your Content To The Next Level.”
Indicating that the specs and features of this new DJI Mavic Air 2 will offer you ways to take your content creation, i.e. aerial photos and video to a new level. In my mind, this does not only mean higher quality photos, panoramas, and video quality but likely also new QuickShots and other features.
You can watch the clip below.
