A leaked ad forces DJI to confirm Mavic 2 drone specs

DJI Mavic 2 drone leak confirms Pro and Zoom models

According to a statement the BBC obtained from a DJI spokesman, the catalog also only shows a "hint" of what will be on offer with the new drones. The Pro model will apparently feature a Hasselblad camera with a 1-inch CMOS sensor, while the Zoom will have a camera with 2x optical zoom and the ability to create a "Dolly Zoom" effect.

DJI was set to announce the new Mavic 2 on July 18th, but that event was unexpectedly postponed and the drone has yet to be officially unveiled. First, a "zoom" model (a configuration DJI is calling the Mavic 2 Zoom) that can shoot as wide as 28mm and as tight as 48mm.

Just because Argos has accidentally printed an ad for the Mavic 2 doesn't mean the launch of the new DJI drone is imminent.

Beyond that we now know that the cameras will include a 360-degree collision awareness system as well as a speedy 45mph top speed.

Reading the small print below we can see that both drones will be able to hit speeds of 45 miles per hour and stay in the air for 31 minutes at a time. It will turn the sky into your creative canvas.

The BBC's Rory Cellan-Jones tested the original Mavic Pro with film-maker Philip Bloom in 2016. Its compact size and 31-minute max flight time makes this one of DJI's most sophisticated flying cameras ever. Omnidirectional obstacle sensing with APAS and Active Track 2.0 give you the confidence to take to sky and capture your moment.

In a separate leak, an image has popped up on the German DJI store appearing to show an "Enterprise Edition" Mavic 2.

A spokesman for DJI said: "This pre-printed catalogue was scheduled before we postponed our "See the Bigger Picture" event". The DJI Mavic 2 will be available in two models - a Zoom model for the masses and a Pro model for professionals.

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.
