DJI Mavic Air 2: Official images of the new drone and accessories leak ahead of imminent release
Following the small Mavic Mini, drone specialist DJI is planning to announce something a bit more powerful. Called the Mavic Air 2, the drone is expected to be announced at 21:30 EDT today. Based on a manufacturer teaser, the Mavic Air 2 will allow you to "Up Your Game", in drone terms at least.
According to a leaked spec sheet, the Mavic Air 2 will feature a 1/2-inch camera sensor capable of shooting in up to 4K at 60 FPS and 48 MP. The Mavic Air 2 will support up to 240 minutes of battery life and 34 minutes of flight time between charges, too. It will also be capable of flying 10 km from your location without losing signal and will transmit to the remote control at 2.4 GHz or 5.8 GHz.
The drone is expected to cost US$799. Based on marketing renders published by Roland Quandt, the Mavic Air 2 will come with a redesigned remote control that also includes a clamp to affix your smartphone. The Mavic Air 2 will be a touch heavier than its predecessor, too. Precisely, the Mavic Air 2 should weigh 570 g.
