New high-end DJI Mavic 2 drones revealed in print leak

No pricing information is displayed in the catalog, but the new drones would be expected to retail for a similar price to the Mavic Pro at around $1,200 RRP. The drone can fly at up to 45mph, it's compact, and reportedly offers a 31-minute max flight time, about four minutes more flight time than the previous version. How a major retailer could inadvertently publish an ad before an official launch is unclear - either Argos mistakenly jumped the gun or DJI failed to inform the store of the cancellation of the launch event. The Pro version has a 1-inch CMOS sensor Hasselblad camera, while the Zoom version has a 2x zoom lens and Dolly Zoom effect. 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.

They will also have 360-degree obstacle sensing, as suggested from the last leak, but it's not clear whether they will have a removable gimbal. A few United Kingdom residents noticed that the Argos catalog included a pretty big ad for the Mavic 2 drone which leaves nothing to the imagination and clarifies even the past leaks. In the catalog, there is no mention of the recording capabilities, though we would not rule out 4K recording features.

DJI is the world leader when it comes to drones, and there's really no questioning why.

It also details a "zoom" version, which is equipped with an optical zoom lens. A drone that can avoid collisions in all directions would be a first of its kind at this level of the market.

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

But postponing a launch is one thing for sites like Pocket-lint, but it's quite another if you'd already printed a catalogue with the details inside. DJI usually keeps the large sensors for their high-end premium drones, and releasing it on the Mavic is going to allow more people to experience the large sensor.
