DJI Mavic 3 rumours: Release date, price, specs

2020 was supposed to be a big year for DJI, with several new drones slated to launch.

Only a couple of those is consumer models, a second-gen Mavic Air, and the third-gen Mavic Pro.

It’s still possible, even with coronavirus, that the Chinese firm will launch the new Mavic Air in April, but the Mavic 3 is less specific.

Initially, rumours had pegged it for a January announcement, but that didn’t happen. According to DroneDJ, a couple of significant rivals – the Autel EVO II 8K ($1495) and the Skydio 2 ($999) – have taken DJI by surprise and it may have delayed releasing the Mavic 3 to make it more competitive.

The Skydio 2 has impressive auto-follow capabilities, while the EVO II (above) has brilliant obstacle avoidance and can shoot 8K video. It also has a 40-minute flight time.

It was only rumoured that DJI would reveal the Mavic 3 in January, not confirmed by the company, so we’ll never know if it backed out at the last minute.

When is the DJI Mavic 3 release date?

Even if the above is correct, the current global pandemic puts even the latest rumours of a summer 2020 launch in doubt.

The latest news is that there are no new coronavirus cases in Wuhan – the city where it was first reported. The knock-on effect of the disease has meant supply chains have been hit and this, in turn, says many companies have been forced to delay the launch of new products.

Bottom line: we don’t know when the Mavic 3 will be released. But it could still be this year

What new features will the Mavic 3 have?

Before getting to the rumours, it’s worth remembering that there are two editions of the Mavic 2: the Pro and Zoom.

It’s unknown if both will get a successor in the Mavic 3 range, but the smart money is on a Mavic 3 Pro.

Here are the rumoured upgrades:

  • Hasselblad camera shooting 4K60 (HDR)
  • ActiveTrack 3.0
  • occupy 3.0
  • VisionSync 3.0
  • ADS-B communication
  • Ten sensors in the visual system for better obstacle avoidance

Some of this spec – well, most of them – come from a concept by Twitter leaker @OsitaLV which was posted just a day after the Skydio 2 was announced.

The only one that’s certain is ADS-B, as DJI has already said that its new models will have this tech – the same as used by air traffic control – in 2020.

What is the Mavic 3 price?

That’s a question which simply cannot be answered yet. With no real specification leaks and rumours that DJI is re-working the new drone to beat rivals, it’s impossible to say how much it will cost.

As a general guide, we can, of course, use those rivals to gauge what it could cost. And that’s a starting price of between $999 and $1500, which is likely to be the same in the UK, so £999 to £1500.

The Mavic 2 Pro costs £1349, so you can safely assume its replacement won’t be any cheaper, especially if it has significant upgrades.

As and when any new rumours come to light, we’ll update this article.
