The likeihood of DJI launching Phantom 5 drone is possible. It might happen this year but we think it will likely get introduced in late 2020, early 2021.

However, we will definitely love to see major improvements for the upcoming DJI Phantom 5 drone.
Since the DJI Phantom 4 drone launched in 2016, there hasn’t been any news about the possibility of a fifth generation.
