DJI has a new version of Mavic Pro along the way, and thanks to a badly published advertisement, the company has now confirmed CNET some of the drone's specifications and features before the official reveal. The big change with the new Mavic 2 Pro is that users can switch lenses on the drill for a 2x optical zoom version (a configuration DJI call Mavic 2 Zoom) that can shoot as wide as 28mm and as close as 48mm.
Switching lenses is a feature that the company has typically reserved for its more expensive professional drones, although it has been rumored to come to its smaller drones (like Mavic) for a while. The camera system at all also gets an upgrade with a large one-inch CMOS sensor ̵
Mavic 2 will collapse, as its predecessor, and seems to be a bit slimmer. It will also have improved performance in the air, with a 31-minute flight time and nearly five miles away. It will get better obstacle to obstacles thanks to sensors that face all directions, something similar to what DJI did, less recent Mavic Air.
No other specifications have been revealed so far, but it is safe to assume that Mavic 2 Pro will shoot 4K recording and will build on the already robust features that have given DJI a stranglehold on the drone market. The company had originally planned to announce the new drone in July, but delayed the event (for an unannounced reason) late enough that British dealer Argos did not have time to withdraw the ad .
