Despite its beautiful look, the drone revealed in the video appears like it may have crashed at some time (which appears to have been confirmed by DealsDrone) as one side of the drone real estate beside the cam seems split open much broader than it ought to be. However, this is likely a model, so it might just be a short-lived part that doesnt quite line up. Something that stands out about the video above, nevertheless, is that the weight of the drone seems printed on the battery and not the drone itself like the DJI Mini 2 and initial DJI Mavic Mini.

The images and videos reveal what claims to be a “DJI Mini 3 Pro”, which means that we may really see 2 different variations of the DJI Mini 3 drone, and were published to Twitter by DealsDrone. They verify the weight of the drone, show the challenge avoidance sensing units, the bigger battery and enhanced 3-axis gimbal & & cam with a wide f/1.7 aperture.

New dripped videos suggest that DJIs finally stepping up to the plate to bring more innovative functions like challenge avoidance to its << 250g line of product, the DJI Mini. Its not much of a surprise considering that Autel just recently launched their Evo Nano/Nano+ (evaluation here), which are currently the only << 250g drones on the marketplace to include it. The DJI Mini 3 is likewise anticipated to come with improved camera performance and video stabilisation and longer flight time.

The battery revealed is absolutely new, however, showing a 2,453 mAh battery vs the Mini 2s 2,250 mAh. On the DJI Mini 2, the weight of the system is printed on the drone itself The DJI Mini 2 provides a 24mm full-frame comparable field of view with an f/2.8 aperture. Provided this, it makes sense that DJI would like to go wider if possible. It also offers some more weight to the previous rumours that we may see both Pro (with the f/1.7 aperture) and non-pro (perhaps keeping the f/2.8 aperture) versions of the Mini 3. While only a few grams difference, if the Mini 3 maxes out its 249g limitation, the motors will have to work just that bit harder. It also has the challenge avoidance system to power, too. Whatevers coming, an announcement is rumoured to occur at some point this month, so hopefully, we will not have long to wait in order to discover all the details. This wouldnt really be all that out of line with the current thinking, though as there are 2 existing model DJI Mini products. So, the Mini 2 upgrade ends up being the Mini 3 Pro and the Mini SE upgrade ends up being the Mini 3 non-Pro and we never ever see a Mini SE2. [through The Verge] One thing that sticks out about the video above, however, is that the weight of the drone appears to be printed on the battery and not the drone itself like the DJI Mini 2 and original DJI Mavic Mini. The DJI Mini 2 provides a 24mm full-frame equivalent field of view with an f/2.8 aperture. It also provides some more weight to the previous rumours that we might see both Pro (with the f/1.7 aperture) and non-pro (perhaps keeping the f/2.8 aperture) versions of the Mini 3. New dripped videos recommend that DJIs lastly stepping up to the plate to bring more advanced features like challenge avoidance to its << 250g item line, the DJI Mini. The DJI Mini 3 is likewise anticipated to come with enhanced video camera efficiency and video stabilisation and longer flight time.
