New DJI product launch teased for August 13

DJI definitely seems to be keeping busy – less than a month
ago the Chinese manufacturer debuted the lightweight Ronin-SC
gimbal
for mirrorless cameras, which was followed closely by
the release of its new FPV
Goggles
.

According to a 15-second video posted on its official YouTube
channel, DJI is gearing up to announce something new on August
13.

The teaser itself doesn’t seem to hold any clues as to what
might be making its debut next week, but based on some other
evidence, it could well be the next generation Osmo
Mobile
smartphone gimbal.


DroneDJ
was the first to unearth details about the Osmo Mobile
3, thanks to a public
FCC filing
made on July 31.

Amongst the paperwork filed is the user manual for the upcoming
gimbal, giving us a clear idea as to what to expect. The Osmo
Mobile 3 will be larger than its predecessor, with dimensions of
286 x 126 x 98mm and weighing in at 405g. However, the phone grip
will fold down to rest alongside the handle for easy storage.

It also looks like the new gimbal will be able to fit bigger and
wider phones (perhaps even the newly announced
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series
). It will be armed with Bluetooth
Low Energy 5 to optimize power consumption and, unlike the Osmo
Mobile 2, will charge via USB-C.

Droning on and on

If you’re expecting DJI to announce new drones, you may need
to wait a while. An eagle-eyed Norwegain reader pointed out to
DroneDJ
that a
special section
on the DJI website lists the paperwork for the
European Union Declaration of Conformity – including those for
the DJI Mavic 2 Pro+ and the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom+.

We’re not expecting the possible new drones to make an
appearance until 2020 as DJI recently announced it will be
implementing aircraft sensors in its consumer drones starting
January 2020. These ADS-B sensors will allow the drone pilot to
detect and avoid low-flying helicopters and airplanes nearby.

Going mirrorless

DJI has also filed a patent for an interchangeable lens camera
that looks very similar to the Hasselblad X1D-50c. A deep dive into
the patent application by Gizmodo
Japan
has unearthed design images and 3D models of the camera
from various angles, giving us a complete look at what could be
DJI’s first mirrorless camera, including the markings on the rear
controls.
