The DJI Mini 3 Pro has thoroughly leaked in an unboxing video and retail post

On Thursday, DJI tweeted a teaser for a Could tenth announcement, saying it’s about to disclose “a twist in the plot.” It appears seemingly that the corporate plans on releasing a brand new drone — particularly given {that a} YouTube video showing a DJI Mini 3 Pro and its controller being unboxed was uploaded on the identical day as DJI’s teaser (via DroneDJ).

Of their video, YouTuber DM Productions says they bought footage of the unboxing from somebody who obtained the unannounced DJI Mini 3 Pro drone early. The video offers us a great take a look at the drone itself, with its bevy of impediment avoidance sensors in addition to its controller.

As DM Productions factors out, the controller is much like DJI’s current RC Pro, with a number of buttons and ports eliminated. The Mini 3 Pro’s controller additionally doesn’t have any antennas protruding from the highest, and I’d wager good cash on the display not being as brilliant or crisp because the one discovered on the $1,100 RC Pro.


Having a controller with a built-in display is nothing to sneeze at. The one which comes with the Mini 2 makes use of your telephone.

At this level, we’ve gotten numerous particulars about this drone. Final month, a leak confirmed that it would still weigh under 250 grams (which means that People gained’t legally must register it) and that it will add front-facing collision avoidance sensors. That leak additionally contained info on the drone’s battery (which is able to apparently be round 2,453mAh) and digital camera, which we later bought much more particulars about thanks to 2 retailers itemizing it on the market early.

According to DroneDJ, the Mini 3 Pro will value someplace round $1,000, and its digital camera system will likely be an enormous enchancment over the Mini 2. (Although you’d hope that’d be the case on condition that the Mini 2 at present sells for $449.) The 3 Pro is rumored to have a much bigger sensor, a lens with a wider aperture that’ll let in extra gentle, and the power to document at 4K 60fps, as an alternative of the 30fps the Mini 2 tops out at. Oh, and it ought to be capable to try this in HDR, hopefully making it so that you don’t must resolve between too-bright skies or too-dark floor.

As for the “twist in the plot” that DJI’s promising, each the retail leaks and the unboxing video point out that you simply’ll be capable to simply swap between taking pictures portrait video and panorama video with the drone. That’s an attention-grabbing function for these making content material for telephones — and there may be some humor in that DJI’s subsequent drone will be capable to shoot vertical content material when a drone made by Snapchat does not.

It appears unlikely that there’s a lot left to leak about this drone, particularly in the brief period of time earlier than it’s formally revealed. DJI’s web site says the announcement is scheduled for the tenth at 9AM ET.
