DJI Air 3: Camera specifications surface in several new leaks
DJI may have not started teasing the release of the Air 3 yet, but more details about the forthcoming drone continue to surface online. Earlier this week, Roland Quandt shared numerous high-resolution renders of said drone, presumably from an early retail listing. Subsequently, the front of the Air 3 has been pictured, as has its retail packaging. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has published initial documentation for the drone too, confirming a 20% larger battery capacity than the Air 2S.
Specifically, the Air 3 has a 4,241 mAh/62.6 Wh battery, as the screenshot below shows. For reference, this tallies with Quandt's earlier leak, in which he claimed that the drone would start at £962 with an RC-N2 controller. As usual, DJI will offer Fly More Combo packages. While only a photo of Fly More Combo with a DJI RC 2 remote controller has surfaced so far, DJI is expected to offer a cheaper RC-N2 variant too.
Moreover, the FCC has added documentation for the RC 2 and RC-N2 as well, emphasising that they are ready for release alongside the Air 3. Separately, other leaked photos have shown the drone's twin camera array, revealing a few specifications in the process. In short, the Air 3 will combine a 24 mm equivalent primary camera with a 70 mm equivalent telephoto camera. The same image confirms f/1.7 and f/2.8 apertures for the pair too, respectively. An Air 3 release date remains unknown at this stage, although the volume of leaks implies that DJI is close to making the drone official.
