DJI Mini 3 development is rumored to have started. Will this mini drone be released in Q2?

Long-time leaker, OsitaLV tweeted recently that the development of the DJI Mini 3 would have started. Earlier today, he also shared a photo that seems to show the new DJI mini drone, although the image is clearly photoshopped and not an actual photo.

On February 27th, OsitaLV tweeted that the development of the had begun.

This morning, he tweeted the above-shown photo and said: “Before further confirmation, I’ll regard this pic as joking.”

The photo shows what the creator wants us to believe is the new DJI Mini 3 Pro. The new mini drone from DJI would have two forward-facing obstacle-avoidance sensors and would come with a new Remote Controller with a large display, in the design of the .

The photo, as you can see, is so poorly made that this rumor can indeed be discarded as a joke.

DJI Mini 3 release date. Q2 of 2022?

However, in the comments, somebody mentioned that the DJI Mini 3 might be launched in April of this year referring to this rumored DJI schedule.

While we have yet to receive a confirmed launch date of the DJI Mini 3, we wouldn’t be surprised to see a new DJI mini drone arrive this spring.

OsitaLV indicates that development has started on the DJI Mini 3. We suspect that it has been underway for quite some time and that a new product launch might happen sooner than expected.

DJI introduced the DJI Mavic Mini and the Mini 2 as drones that weigh less than 250 grams. It is widely expected that a DJI Mini 3 while offering improved performance and features, would still weigh less than 250 grams.

Please take with a grain of salt. While we try to confirm and double-check all information that is shared with us, not everything turns out to be accurate.

Besides, DJI is known to change its plans at the last moment as the drone maker infamously did with the launch of the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom and Pro.
