DJI Mini 3 Classic or Mini 3 SE leaked in photos? Really?

What drone model are we seeing in these leaked photos? Could this be a DJI Mini 3 Classic or a Mini 3 SE? Let’s take a closer look.

Earlier today, DealsDrone tweeted the following photo that shows two grey DJI Mini-like drones, a charging (?) cable, a remote controller, a laptop, and some other items.

Over the last few years, we have gotten to know DealsDrone as a reliable DJI leaker.

In his tweet, he mentions, “A new drone, but I don’t know which manufacturer it is.”

Another leaked photo showing the DJI Mini 3 Classic?

And hours later, he posts another photo showing even more of the mysterious, DJI Mini-like drone.

Looking closer at the drones in the photo, we see what might be four obstacle avoidance sensors on every corner of each drone.

The drones are designed in a DJI Mini-like shape and share the same light grey color. Even the propellers resemble DJI’s props.

However, there are a lot of details that do not seem to add up. For instance, it seems weird that if DJI were going to release a cheaper Pro, they would radically alter the design while keeping the obstacle avoidance sensors, but in different locations.

It would make a lot more sense to keep the DJI Mini 3 Pro design but remove features such as the o/a sensors to reduce costs and, thus, the price.

Furthermore, the props look sort of like DJI props, but not quite. There is no DJI logo visible anywhere on the drone. The remote controller seems to require a smartphone, which is not in line with recent DJI trends.

Apart from the two tweets and photos, DealsDrone did not provide any additional information.

He did, however, suggest earlier this year that DJI would launch a cheaper variant of the and the DJI Mini 3 Pro in the fall. He was right about a cheaper Mavic 3, because we did see the DJI Mavic 3 Classic. So, could DealsDrone be right about the DJI Mini 3 Classic or Mini 3 SE?

Is DealsDrone right about a DJI Mini 3 Classic or Mini SE?

What do you think?

Are these drones from another manufacturer who is ripping off some of the design features of the DJI Mini 3 Pro?

We have seen competing drone makers develop drones that are very much inspired by DJI drones. So it wouldn’t be the first time.

Or do you think we are indeed looking at pre-production models of the DJI Mini 3 Classic or Mini 3 SE?

Let us know what you think in the comments below.
