@DealsDrone has published a table (DJI roadmap) that outlined products that DJI has or will release between 2019 and 2022. Embedded below, the table outlines that DJI will release the following devices next year, starting with the DJI Mini 3 drone in April.
- April 2022: DJI Mini 3
- June 2022: DJI RS3/RSC3
- July 2022: DJI FPV Mini
- September 2022: DJI Inspire 3
- November 2022: DJI Pocket 3
We should stress that it is unclear from where @DealsDrone obtained their data. However, they point out that these dates are guesses, seemingly based on past product releases. Nonetheless, they claim to have confirmed that DJI will announce the FPV Mini, Mini 3 and Inspire 3.
Unfortunately, @DealsDrone has not provided any details about what we should expect from any of these upcoming DJI devices. Presumably, more details will appear in early next year, especially if the leaker is correct with their prediction of an April 2022 release for the Mini 3.
Later the same month, rumors began when notable leaker OsitaLV shared a sketch of the Mini 3. The sketch featured possible specs and design changes we will see if the Mini is announced in 2022. Here is what OsitaLV has to say about the Mini 3:
New aerodynamic design
Carbon fiber skeloton
Downward slanted arms
Longer flight time
Flight controller, ISPs, codec, and neural engine on a single chip
Larger camera sensor
Forward, backward, and downward obstical sensors
USB-C and MicroSD
Extended batter (overall flight time increase)
Under 249 grams
If these rumors are true, the Mini 3 looks like a very capable drone for its size. The supposed launch of the Mini 3 is soon, so we should start to hear more leaks or official announcements soon.
