Autel Nano and Lite drones released on September 28th
It seems that DJI is getting some real competition from Autel Robotics soon. Earlier we already reported on the imminent arrival of the Autel Nano, and Lite drones, but now we have an official release date.
The announcement image below shows us the Autel name and reads:
A new realm of aerial photography | 10 am Shenzhen, China
Below the announcement text, it shows two drones, the new Autel Nano and Autel Lite. At the bottom of the image, there are two QR links that do not seem to work as of yet.
Jasper Ellens was able to find some more photos of the new Autel Nano and Lite drones that show us some of the camera specs.

Autel Nano mini drone
The second photo shows us the front of the Autel Nano mini drone with two obstacle avoidance sensors. This drone will weigh less than 250 grams and shoot video in 4K on a 1/2-inch sensor with an aperture of f/2.8. More specs here.
The third photo shows us the backside of the Autel Nano mini drone where we see two obstacle avoidance sensors, the legs in a folded position, an on/off button, four battery status LED lights, a USB-C connection, and a microSD card slot. If you look closely you also see another LED light at the bottom of the drone and the black outline of what seems to be another obstacle avoidance sensor at the bottom of the mini drone.
Missing Autel EVO III drone
The only photos and announcement confirmation we’re missing is the one for the Autel EVO III. Based on the release dates mentioned in an earlier post, it appears that Autel Robotics is a bit behind schedule (what’s new) with the releases of their new drones. We expect to see the new Autel EVO III sometime in late October or early November which might nicely coincide with the arrival of the DJI Mavic 3 Pro. We can’t wait!
Let us know in the comments below what you think of the soon-to-be-released Autel Nano and Autel Lite drones. Excited to see DJI get some real competition?
