The Osmo Mobile is DJI's take on the motorized smartphone gimbal, which may make for improved stability in video and selfies. A new leak points to a 2020 model of this product which, unlike the current third-generation iteration, will have a magnetic system to secure the phone in question to the rest of the robot arm-like device.

Despite repeat claims from smartphone OEMs concerning progressively better forms of stabilization, zoom and other video functions per generation of their devices, companies such as DJI still do well out of supplying a demand for high-end gimbals for the product category.

Its version of this accessory is called the Osmo Mobile, a motorized, compact phone tripod/grip that is rated to pan, track subjects and switch between portrait and landscape orientations automatically. However, according to a new leak, its latest generation is soon to be superceded by the upcoming 4 variant.

This purported new DJI device is depicted in what is claimed as an official leaked poster. It does come in Chinese-language flavor; nevertheless, it could be said to show that this Osmo Mobile 4 comes in a new shade of silvery gray, whereas the 3 ships in a darker shade.

The poster also apparently tells us that the "4" will come with the features ActiveTrack 3.0 (which is also found in the 3) and DynamicZoom (which is not). More importantly, however, it suggests that the upcoming gimbal will feature an innovative magnetic mounting system, by which the "clamp" portion can be easily installed on the device in question, then simply snap onto the rest of the powered smartphone-photography tool.
