New high-end DJI Mavic 2 drones revealed in print leak

We've only seen zoom lenses and 1in image sensors on DJI's more expensive professional drones like the Phantoms and Aspires, so it's great to see these options coming to the cheaper and more portable Mavic. This is new for DJI, and also features on the latest drone from Parrot, the ANAFI.

The accidental leak shows off two models of the DJI Mavic 2, which hasn't even been launched by the manufacturer yet.

Both models are said to be capable of 31 minutes of flight time and a top speed of nearly 45mph, along with the ability to transmit live 1080p video to distances up to 5 miles.

Just because Argos has accidentally printed an ad for the Mavic 2 doesn't mean the launch of the new DJI drone is imminent.

Details of an unannounced new drone from market leader DJI have been revealed early in a UK-based store's catalog. The newest issue of the United Kingdom catalog Argos has spilled the beans on nearly everything except the pricing, and drone fans have been quick to share the ad online.

It also details a "zoom" version, which is equipped with an optical zoom lens. In the catalogue, there is no mention of the recording capabilities, though we would not rule out 4K recording features. And second, the introduction of a new Pro model with a much larger image sensor. It will also offer 360-degree obstacle detection.

But it's still the first time a sensor of this kind will feature in a drone this capable and small.

All we have right now is what to expect when the Mavic 2 drones finally land, and a pending decision on whether you want a Hasselblad camera with no zoom or the flexibility of a 2x lens.

"This pre-printed catalogue was scheduled before we postponed our "See the Bigger Picture" event", the spokesman continued, adding that the event had been delayed to "ensure we can deliver high-quality, cutting-edge technology to our customers".

We'll have to wait and see, but if all of this comes to fruition there are some big product launches on the way from DJI.
