There is new information hinting at possible of new DJI Mavic 2 Pro+ and DJI Mavic 2 Zoom+ that is likely slanted for launch in 2020. According to DJI’s website which indicates the introduction of the company’s most popular foldable drone.
The expansion of DJI Mavic 2 series could be referred to special section of the company’s site that lists EU Declaration of Conformity for each of their Mavic products. Which just happened to list the names of two brand new DJI drones: the DJI Mavic 2 Pro+ and DJI Mavic 2 Zoom+.
But that isn’t the only place where reference was made. According to an online PDF manual of DJI Smart Controller, you could on a graphic page 13 which shows the display interface and they also mentioned DJI Mavic 2 Pro+.
As why I think DJI will likely launch these brand new drones in 2020. Earlier this year, DJI has been focused on presenting elevating safety presentation in Washington. By introducing AirSense technology that will be incorporated in all new drones that weights 250 grams or more to have built-in ADS-B receiver. This piece of technology is designed to warn of incoming air traffic.
Obviously, these Mavic 2 drones weights more than 250 grams, hence they will be required to have built-in receiver. As a matter of fact, the Mavic 2 Enterprise already have one on the board. In addition to that, the new European Union drone regulations will not be finalized until later this year in October. The new regulations will go into full effect in June 2020.
While the Chinese tech giant wants to wait and see what these final rules are going to be so that they can ensure the new drones will comply with the new requirements. DJI hasn’t announced any major consumer drones up until recently they launched a brand new FPV Air Racing Unit with specialized HD goggles. The company also developed Robomaster S1 Tank, an educational robot kit and Ronin-SC handheld gimbal stabilizer for cameras and smartphones.
Back in August 2018 when DJI released Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom. The drone enthusiasts were a little bit disappointed with them due to lack of ability to record videos at 4K @ 60 FPS. Since they only can record up to 30 FPS, as it appears that the company is attempting to avert cannibalizing its own market. Rumors about the DJI Mavic 2 successors offers a lot of improvements such as longer flight time, possible bigger remote control distance, and most importantly video quality.
Based on the market projection, we are fairly confident that the DJI Mavic 2 Pro+ and Mavic 2 Zoom+ is likely due for release in 2020. Probably around 16 months after the Mavic 2 series was introduced back in August.
