Here are the latest DJI Mavic 3 rumors straight from China. Last week, we saw the renderings that were shared online by DroneModelismo. Then we saw the not incredibly professional renderings of what the new dual-lens camera setup on the DJI Mavic 3 might look like. Over the weekend we received this information that confirms most of what we already knew, using more of the same renderings.
DJI Mavic 3 rumors update from China
DJI spokesperson and Director of Public Relations, Ti Xie, also known as ‘General Xie’ (DJI loves military references) has been doing a great job keep the lid shut on any DJI Mavic 3 rumors. Every time anything leaks, Xie responds quickly and firmly, keeping any details leaking out to a minimum. However, as we get closer to the DJI Mavic 3 launch, General Xie’s job gets increasingly more difficult.
Over the weekend, we received the following information from a reliable source through Chinese social media. It confirms most of what we already know of the M3 and we’ve included all the renderings to give you an idea of what to expect. Note the renderings are not entirely accurate in terms of size, dimensions, and overall design. the sketches provided by DroneModelismo last week are far more accurate.
Let’s dive in!
Chinese source confirms latest DJI Mavic 3 rumors
- These renderings are based on actual photos of the M3, although the renderings are not accurate in their size, dimensions, and overall design.
- The DJI Mavic 3 will have a dual-lens setup
- You can switch between the lenses on the fly (pun intended)
- The specs are shown on the camera. The top lens is a seven-times (7x) optical zoom lens. The other lens is marked “F/2.8 EQV 24”. The top left corner of the camera shows an ‘H’ to indicate that it was developed in partnership with Hasselblad. Note: eventhough it doesn’t say so explicitly, we still expect the camera to have a variable aperture ranging from at least f/2.8 – f/11.
- The DJI Mavic 3 will come in two versions, the more expensive one will be equipped with a 1TB SSD drive (solid-state drive) and ProRes video recording capabilities. The lower-end drone will come without the 1TB SSD onboard.
- Battery life (and/or flight time) is expected to be 45 minutes.
- The drone will come with a new remote controller with a built-in screen. The design is expected to be similar to the remote controller from the DJI Air 2S. The hardware will have been upgraded and will offer O3 (OcuSync 3.0) for the DJI Mavic 3.
- The DJI Mavic 3 is expected to be somewhat larger than the outgoing DJI Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom.
- The DJI Mavic 3 is expected to be released in November. However, keep in mind that DJI tends to change plans at the last moment as we have seen time and time again.
- More than one factory will be involved in the production of the M3.
Our Chinese source tells us that this is unofficial news and is meant for reference only.
The above news is unofficial official news, for reference only! For reference only! For reference only! Some news has been circulated overseas before, this time it can be regarded as further clarification.
We do not have any confirmed information on the camera’s sensor size. However, it is safe to expect the video recording capabilities of the DJI Mavic 3 to be significantly better than what we have seen on the DJI Mavic 2 Pro.
We expect to receive more accurate information as we approach the official release date of the DJI Mavic 3. Good places to look for confirmation are the FCC filings, and of course Best Buy!
We will keep a close eye on all these sources and report our findings to you here on DroneXL.
