Other tidbits tipped in the leak hints at improved 360-degree obstacle avoidance technology, which is a big feature if you are using the drone to record video in an environment with lots of obstacles like trees overhead and brush down low.

Until this year, consumers had a choice between the Mavic Pro and Spark.

Leaks aren't any new for DJI, as the last several devices have came up online in some form prior to release. The drone also appeared to have two different sensor sizes, with what looked like a 1-inch sensor equipped to it and a 1/1.7 sensor on the table. The addition of wide-angle option would also be in keeping with that whole "bigger picture" bit.

A closer look at the alleged DJI Mavic 2 photo revealed that it looked like a sleeker and more aerodynamic DJI Mavic Pro.

At least 4 boys evacuated from Thailand cave: Thai Navy SEAL
We do not have details about their exact condition, but this extraordinary rescue mission now appears to have come to an end. A former Thai Navy SEAL died while helping install oxygen tanks in preparation for the extraction.

If the DJI Mavic 2 leak shows an accurate image, there are still some remaining questions about the next DJI drone. That would give the machine greater situational awareness than the Mavic Air, which has sensors on the front, underneath, and rear, and therefore help beginners or risk-takers from flying the drone into a building or some other obstacle. It might be because DJI plans for it to be used as a stabilized camera.

Oddly this model would not appear to feature the new "quiet props" introduced via the Mavic Pro Platinum but this could be an early concept model.

One of the most interesting things about the leaked photos is the Mavic 2 label on the drone. But maybe not right away - because DJI confirms that though it had a July 18 event planned (perhaps for a product launch?) the event has now been pushed back. This would be a feature that will be carried over from the original Mavic Pro. And whether or not the Mavic 2 would represent a good deal would depend on whether or not the price is comparable to the $999 you pay for a Mavic Pro.
