A leaked ad forces DJI to confirm Mavic 2 drone specs

Information about the new drone has been leaking here and there for a while now but we now have most of our questions answered after United Kingdom retail catalog Argos kind of leaked the details and they're pretty interesting. The DJI Mavic 2 Zoom will be the standard model, but it will have a 2x optical zoom lens on board. Both new models will offer up to 31-minute flight time and close to 8km range.

According to previous speculations, there is the possibility that the new drones by DJI will have swappable cameras. That's what the print industry risks every day, and an error like printing an ad way out of schedule can lead to a Mavic mishap... just ask drone- and gimbal-maker DJI. There's also a dolly zoom on the, er, Zoom version.

Most significant is the new drones' "omnidirectional obstacle avoidance".

The latest edition of the catalogue store's literature features photos and technical specifications of the as yet unannounced Mavic 2 Pro drone. The leak suggested that the drone might be able to detect obstacles with a 360-degree field of view. A drone that can avoid collisions in all directions would be a first of its kind at this level of the market.

Pricing and availability have yet to be revealed, but we'll likely know sooner rather than later since Argos made a decision to include the Mavic 2 already before it was even announced. Now, more details have emerged about its successor, which will apparently arrive in two specs.

The follow-up to DJI's flagship Mavic drone has been a bit of an open secret recently, but it seems the early release of an advertisement has revealed the last remaining details. It doesn't look so different from the new drones revealed by Argos, but it seems to have been created to handle heavier payloads and swap out different attachments for commercial flights.

A spokesman for DJI said: "This pre-printed catalogue was scheduled before we postponed our "See the Bigger Picture" event".
