The Mavic 3 release date is set for November according to this leaked announcement photo that was shared on Twitter this morning. The ‘split’ photo seemingly confirms the dual-camera setup of the DJI Mavic 3 Pro as the new DJI drone will be officially called.
Update: After examining the photo more closely and checking in with DJI insiders, we are increasingly doubtful of this leaked Mavic 3 release date poster as 1) the font type of the text at the bottom seems off, 2) there is no exact date and time mentioned anywhere on the photo, something that has been present on previous DJI announcements, and 3) what is that blurred section on the left of the photo?
Mavic 3 release date set for November leaked announcement photo shows
The Mavic 3 release date is shown in what seems to be an official announcement poster for the new DJI drone. This morning Jasper Ellens shared on Twitter the ‘split’ photo, supposedly taken with the DJI Mavic 3 Pro. You can see that the top half of the photo is taken with a zoom lens whereas the bottom photo is taken with the wide-angle lens.
We believe that the split photo is a clear hint to the DJI Mavic 3 Pro with the dual Hasselblad camera setup. The top camera offers a 1/2-inch sensor with a 7x optical zoom function. Whereas the bottom camera works with an M4/3 or MFT sensor to capture more light and provide higher quality photos. Combined these two lenses will offer a 28x hybrid zoom functionality.
The poster shows two photos of an intersecting highway. It also shows the DJI logo at the top and at the bottom it says:
Double The Fun
So, now that the Mavic 3 release date is known, you better start saving if you haven’t done so already. The new DJI Mavic 3 Pro will fire up the competition and makes us wonder if the Autel EVO III will be able to compete with this new DJI flagship drone.

Mavic 3 release date poster fake?
Could the Mavic 3 release date poster be fake? Yes, possibly. The three main things that are off with this poster are:
- The font type is different from other DJI announcements we have seen in the past.
- The poster lacks a specific day and time.
- Why is there a blurred section on the left side of the photo?
The overall expectation among industry insiders we spoke to is that the Mavic 3 Pro will be released in October or November of this year. Let us know what you think about the Mavic 3 release date in the comments below.
Making a poster is a piece of cake, this one is the true DJI style, but it's only a fan-made. pic.twitter.com/A9Pzemhj43
