DJI’s unannounced Air 2S drone has leaked in a series of photos posted by TechnikNews and WinFutureRoland Quandt. The photos come after the drone was listed in an FCC archive last month, suggesting that a launch may not be far off.

There is also support for DJI’s newer OcuSync 3.0 standard with lower latency. Although the battery has the same capacity of 3,500 mAh, the Air 2S seems to be a little heavier than the Mavic Air 2 with 30 grams.
