A buzz has recently filled the drone community thanks to Igor Bogdanov, better known as @Quadro_News. He's been releasing snapshots and clips believed to be of the latest innovation from DJI, the Mini 4 Pro.
With the excitement comes a natural question: Isn't it too early for DJI to roll out another drone just over a year after the DJI Mini 3 Pro's debut?
Yet, this isn't new for DJI. Recall the DJI Mini 2's arrival, which came roughly a year after introducing the original DJI Mavic Mini. The Chinese drone giant seems to be keen on keeping fans on their toes!
We could be looking at enhanced video transmission with the possible inclusion of the DJI OcuSync 4.0 or O4, a feature showcased in the recent DJI Air 3.
Furthermore, we would expect photo and video quality enhancements, such as higher resolution, increased bit rates, better obstacle avoidance, increased flight time, and possibly a sprinkle of fresh, intelligent features.
One standout feature that will surely remain constant is the drone's weight. Maintaining a weight under 250 grams would mean the DJI Mini 4 Pro could avoid certain drone regulations. For American drone fliers, this translates to no mandatory registration if the drone is used recreationally.
Given the increasing volume of leaks surrounding the DJI Mini 4 Pro, predictions lean towards an official introduction of this mini drone just in time for the year-end shopping rush. Most are banking on a September or October release.
Another significant hint of the drone's imminent arrival would be its mention in the FCC database.
For all drone aficionados and DJI fans, DroneXL remains the platform to keep an eye on as we will release any News and rumors around the DJI Mini 4 Pro as soon as they come out.
So, stay tuned and keep those skies clear for the next big reveal!
