DJI's next Mavic drone might have 360-degree obstacle awareness

Another new feature rumored to be coming to the next Mavic Pro involves additional sensors that could provide it with 360-degree obstacle avoidance.

What Will The DJI Mavic 2 Offer? The timing certainly seems right for a followup to 2016's Mavic Pro, and the "bigger picture" event artwork appears to confirm a focus on imaging.

The camera and gimbal have been fully revised in a similar fashion as the Mavic Air but the interesting element is the potentially replaceable nature of the camera, suggested by the secondary camera module circled bottom-left of the photo.

We have just received this photo of what would appear to be the first credible photo of the DJI Mavic Pro 2 in the wild, at this time we can not confirm its authenticity but it looks pretty convincing.

The image comes via DroneDJ, along with several notes on the likely specifications that the device may sport, according to what can be seen in the picture below. In fact, it is much closer in form to the Mavic than the more recent Mavic Air. It delivered much of what the Mavic Pro could do at a lower price.

But, it still could continue imports if Iran accepts an alternative payment or offers a longer credit period. HPCL-Mittal Energy Ltd continued to skip Iran oil imports for a second month in June, the data showed.

DJI is, of course, still far and away the market leader for consumer drones, and its Mavic line has gone a long way toward helping mainstream the product for consumers.

The leak calls it Mavic 2 and not Mavic Pro 2, which was the expected model to come out so it might just mean DJI has two models in the making, not just one.

The arms of this drone are also rounded rather than featuring sharp and defined edges as per the original model.

DJI's not resting on its laurels, however, and was originally scheduled to host a big event on July 18 (US time) - one where the company had invited attendees to "see the bigger picture". Only the DJI Phantom drones have wide-angle lenses, but a swappable gimbal and sensor may finally bring the feature to the DJI Mavic 2.
