DJI (大疆科技), a world leader in drone technology, announced today that it will hold a new product launch at 9pm (GMT+8) on July 25.
Although the Shenzhen-based giant didn’t name its new model in an official poster, it dropped hints that the gadget will be equipped with a “dual-lens” system.
cnrobopedia reported last week that DJI is expected to unveil a mid-range Air 3 drone, which comes with a binocular, two-camera system that is similar to the company’s top-of-the-line model Mavic 3.
Rumors from the geek community alleged that the to-be-launched Air 3 will adopt a 48MP camera design, with a 24mm main lens and a long lens with an equivalent focal length of 70mm.
The apertures of the two cameras are f/1.7 and f/2.8.
Unlike Mavic 3, a model at the top of DJI’s long product lines, Air 3 won’t possess a camera from Hasselblad, which could be a disappointment for photography buffs.
Aside from the camera set, cnrobopedia reported earlier that Air 3 will be powered by a new battery pack, with 4,241 mAh, or 62.6Wh, in energy density.
This upgrade is expected to give a boost to the flight time of Air 3, relative to Air 2 or Air 2S, given that the battery capacity receives an increase of about 30% over the earlier model.
