Enough with the sketches and the renderings and the graphics. Real photos of DJI’s forthcoming Mavic 3 drone are surfacing now, and how!
The first photo in the wild emerged yesterday after some masterful sleuthing by Jasper Ellens. And today, long-time DJI tipster OsitaLV posted a massive photo dump featuring close-up shots of the product.
There has been a lot of anticipation among prosumers for the next iteration in DJI’s flagship Mavic line. Both the Mavic 2 Pro and the Mavic 2 Zoom were released in August 2018, meaning they were long due for a refresher.
Up until last month though, leaks about Mavic 3 had been few and far between. And it would appear DJI had managed to keep a lid on the leaks even after locking down the final design.
But when it rains, it pours. And that’s exactly what has happened this week, beginning with an owner’s manual and full specs of the drone surfacing online.
DJI Mavic 3 new photos emerge
The photos leaked today show the highly-anticipated bird looking beefier and bulkier than its predecessors. The dual-camera module looks gorgeous in the image above, with the Hasselblad logo displayed prominently in the top left corner. You can also see the forward obstacle avoidance sensors that are placed at roughly a 45-degree angle to assist with avoiding obstacles off to the side.
There are multiple air inlet grills and heat sinks positioned throughout the body of the drone to keep the internal components from overheating while the Mavic 3 makes magic with its new telephoto and wide-angle cameras. The Mavic branding is also clear on the front leg of the drone, though the number three has been taped off.
This second image seems to show the drone being charged with the new USB-C port.
And here, we have the DJI Mavic 3, again out in the wild, and ready for takeoff.
