Amidst the news of the DJI Launch Event being postponed from its original 18th July date (confirmed by DroneValley earlier today), this photo may bring some hope to those that were still pondering the topic of the event.
The Mavic 2 designation on the drone is clear in the leaked image.
The drone does seem to have front and side obstacle avoidance sensors visible, which means the drone would have 360-degree sensing technology.
With the recent leak of this image and the postponing of the "Bigger Picture" NYC event, I wonder what's going on at the DJI office? There also seems to be a larger sensor on the drone on the left, whereas the one to the right has a slightly larger one.
DJI is, of course, still far and away the market leader for consumer drones, and its Mavic line has gone a long way toward helping mainstream the product for consumers. The addition of wide-angle option would also be in keeping with that whole "bigger picture" bit. The speculation is that the event will unveil the company's next drone after the DJI Mavic Pro, as the artwork for the event hints that imaging will be the highlight. So the Mavic 2, if it doubles down on pro-level features, could be DJI's way of enticing people to spend more. This could be a huge selling point for the drone in terms of ease-of-use, and DJI has already demonstrated its obstacle-avoidance tech works well on previous models, albeit in a more limited fashion.
