DJI OM 6 and Osmo Mobile SE specifications and prices leak as 'Unfold Your Creativity' launch event confirmed
DJI is far from done this year, despite releasing several drones and the Osmo Action 3, an action camera and GoPro Hero 11 Black series competitor. Setting aside rumours of other drones being in the pipeline, the company has now teased that it has new smartphone gimbals on the horizon too. Both to be marketed under the Osmo Mobile series, the pair will debut tomorrow during an 'Unfold Your Creativity' hardware event.
While DJI is light on details about its next Osmo Mobile gimbals, WinFuture has leaked specifications, press images and prices for the OM 6 and Osmo Mobile SE. In contrast to last year's OM 5, the OM 6 is only expected to arrive in a dark grey colourway, with the Osmo Mobile SE taking over the light grey reins this time around. Although the pair look similar, WinFuture asserts that there will be a healthy price difference. Specificially, the OM SE is rumoured to launch for €109, with DJI setting the OM 6's price at €179.
For the additional money, DJI includes a smaller battery, although the 1,000 mAh cell should last 6:30 hours between charges. Additionally, the OM 6 relies on Active Track 5.0 technology with 3-axis stabilisation. Quandt adds that the OM 6 weighs 340 g including its 31 g magnetic clip, which belies the gimbal's overall more compact design than its predecessor. As the leaked marketing images show, the OM 6 also features a telescopic arm, several control inputs and a small screen for displaying key information like battery levels.
By contrast, the OM SE has a 2,600 mAh battery that will provide up to 8 hours of battery life. Purportedly, DJI's cheaper gimbal will weigh 352 g, or 383 g when factoring its magnetic clip. Overall, the two gimbals offer similar functionality, but the OM 6 will be the more versatile thanks to its telescopic arm and hinged design. DJI's 'Unfold Your Creativity' event will commence at 09:00 EDT (13:00 UTC), during which it should confirm availability and pre-order dates.
