UPDATE 10/28/2019 – Leaked a video "mini analysis" showing various details, specifications and features of the drone, as you can see in the video below, including confirming the format, size and weight. The video should go down soon …
UPDATE 10/28/2019 – The DroneDJ website has published a new leak confirming once again the existence of Mavic Mini with photos identical to other leaks, but now with real images of the drone and not of press releases. Other information also indicates slightly different specifications than previously reported, such as weight of 245 grams, autonomy of 18 minutes and size of 140x140x53 when closed. The 12MP 1 / 2.3 "CMOS web camera sensor.
Another point to note that apparently he has no sensors like the other drones of the Mavic line.
New photos and alleged drone specs leaked DJI Mavic Mini to be announced on October 30, next Wednesday. Already practically official the announcement by DJI has scheduled an event for the 30th called "Fly as you are", in addition to a lot of information leaked in sequence, common situation in other cases.
See everything we publish about DJI
As we've talked about in other publications, this will be the first DJI drone to be released this year. By 2019 the company launched gilbals as the new Osmo Mobile 3, the action cam OSMO Action and the Digital FPV System kit, which does not have a drone in the package. It is also worth noting that the Mavic Mini should not bring the system that detects airplanes and helicopters during the flight, in principle the first product that supports this safety system will be launched in 2020.
Less than 250 grams, 18 or 30 minutes of flight and 2.7K camera
Unlike what had previously been leaked, this latest leak has an alleged Newegg Canada announcement worth $ 646 (Canadian dollars), which converted to US dollars would be about $ 499, but it may just be an internal register value, but a higher value. realistic in the face of specifications. As main highlights of the Mavic Mini considering the leaks, a very compact drone weighing less than 250 grams to the point of fitting in the palm when "closed". The company has managed to further shrink the Mavic Air's small size, but it seems to have been able to make significant improvements, and if the leaks are confirmed to fly for 18 or 30 minutes on a full battery charge, yes, the leaks report two. Quite different battery times, if it's almost twice as long as a Spark and 7 minutes longer than a Mavic Air, just 1 less than the Mavic 2. I think it's more likely to be 18 minutes, but …. and how they could achieve it. 30 minutes? In addition to natural evolution, lighter components could help, but as highlighted, for now only rumors.
In addition to the range, the leaks indicate that it comes with a 2.7K camera and 3-axis gimbal system. Visually the camera resembles the Hasselblad model of the Mavic 2 Pro, will we have the second camera developed by the company on a consumer DJI drone? Ahhhh, the leaks indicate that it should cost between $ 400 and $ 500, competitive price for these differentials and for bringing DJI quality. Remember that a Mavic Air currently costs $ 749, but the new "Mini" would bring great advances putting a lot of pressure on the Air, which would have as main differential the 4K camera.
It's a pity that DJI is barely paying attention when it comes to reviewing products, but we will certainly be after getting a model for review as soon as possible.
In the picture below you can see the complete kit with drone, bag, propeller protectors, control, battery charging hub and batteries. Remember that by having less than 250 grams he can "escape" from a series of approvals and certificates around the world, greatly increasing the sales potential compared to any other drone released, certainly the greatest success of all time, I speak. This is considering what has leaked to date of specifications and price.
