Breaking News: the brand new DJI Mavic 2 Pro is listed in the latest Argos catalog with images and details. It appears that DJI will be releasing two different types of most sought foldable drones: The DJI Mavic 2 Pro equipped with a 1-inch sensor. The second version will be a DJI Mavic 2 with a 24-48mm zoom lens and “Dolly Zoom” effect which is similar to the Parrot Anafi (See Price).
Originally, the DJI planned to announce the new DJI Mavic 2 during the special event “See the Bigger Picture” in NYC on July 18th. But they decided to postpone the event. The reasons why they postponed is still unclear to us.
The new DJI Mavic 2 on a catalog of an English retails indicates the launch date isn’t that far.

The brand new DJI Mavic 2 will feature:

DJI Mavic 2 Gimbal Camera Setup
Based on what we speculated, it appears that the brand new DJI Mavic 2 cameras don’t come with the same protection that Mavic Air (See Price) features. That being said, the combination of cameras and gimbal does look quite vulnerable. However, the new DJI Mavic 2 Pro looks much more robust than the zoom version. Luckily enough, they are equipped with an omnidirectional obstacle detection system that will certainly help you go a long way from flying into objects.
While it is only the beginning. It will be at least a few weeks (or months) before we will know the full details. For now, it looks like the enterprise version of DJI Mavic 2 will be the only one that is capable of doing that.
