DJI Mavic 3 Pro to replace Phantom 4 Pro and likely also Inspire 2 drone

As we have said before, the new DJI Mavic 3 is likely to arrive in two versions. A ‘regular’ Mavic 3 as well as a larger Mavic 3 Pro. The Pro version will not only replace the Phantom 4 Pro but is also likely to replace the aging Inspire 2.

DJI Mavic 3 Pro to replace the Phantom 4 Pro and likely also the Inspire 2 drone

DJI was expected to launch the drone this summer, but it seems that DJI has changed course and because of the turbulent political times will now wait to introduce this drone until at least January 2021.

The new Mavic 3 is expected to arrive in two versions, a regular and a DJI Mavic 3 Pro. Both versions will make the Phantom 4 Pro obsolete, but the DJI Mavic 3 Pro is even expected to replace the aging DJI Inspire 2.

The is a platform that did very well for DJI and one that they are proud of, according to an anonymous company insider. However, the camera options for the Inspire 2 are showing their age and the DJI’s dual-band Lightbridge technology that is used in this professional drone can’t hold a candle to the company’s latest tech seen in the DJI Mavic Air 2.

It is been rumored that the new DJI Mavic 3 Pro will have interchangeable lenses and that the Chinese drone maker might even be working on a stabilized zoom lens option. We think that if these rumors become reality, the Mavic 3 Pro will surely mean the end of the Inspire 2 series.

The Phantom 4 Pro production will be stopped at that point as well, and DJI might only opt to keep producing the Phantom 4 RTK and P4 Multispectral for commercial and enterprise customers.
