I like the darker color. So tired of the bland gray.

I'm not sure. I saw it somewhere else. You suppose that's a proximity sensor on the front top area?

Built in lights like those on the legs would be nice.

But that does look like a 3D render rather than an actual physical product shot.

Not that that on itself means anything other than anyone could have created the render (including DJI).

That's true. Some product images are rendered by the companies themselves, but DJI does a pretty good job keeping leaks limited. I guess we will find out. The 5K is probably the absolute minimum. I'm sure it will be doing 4K60, which is what I'd love my Mini 2 to have.

If you zoom in, you can tell that the "drone" is superimposed on the wood grain back drop. That only means the picture has been doctored. Could be real? Who knows? It sure is purty, though!!

Me too, though 4K50 would actually gave been enough for me.

Agreed, the darker grey looks really classy!

It would've been great to get that as part of a firmware update, but then they'd sell fewer Mini 3's.

Works both ways, I guess.

I almost didn't buy Mini 2 as it didn't do 4K50 and it seemed to be close to DJIs release cycle so the Mini n3 could have been just around the corner (October/November last year).

I was burned like this by DJI when I bought my Osmo Pocket. They released the Pocket 2 very soon after with better surge and the same price as the original.

They stopped firmware updates for the original OP as well leaving there original OP with a number of bugs.

I can see why they keep their release plans quiet commercially, but the related practices around stopping updates so quickly doesn't do their reputation much good long term.

Coz it ain't an iPhone... And to be completely accurate it's actually the autocomplete/Swype that's the problem.

I use Swype style typing rather than individual key presses. It gets its right most of them time so safes a lot of time and finger fatigue, but not always... Obviously ;-(

Yes, my default preference is 4K60 (for U.S.). I just love the way it looks. I did finally get that with the Air 2S, and it was great. But I needed to sell that drone to help pay for something else that cropped up. It was just as well, as it was more than I really wanted to spend.

mini3 will probably be out this year (spring, summer whatever), but what we really want is to get 1inch sensor (or at least close to it) on it due to all silly restrictions in eu etc, where sub 250g drone looks like to be only viable option for the future in urban regions..

Ok, I'll fess up and save you more searching. I did it, and then played dumb that I got it somewhere else.  Just having a bit of fun with it.

I used this image of the Mini 2, flipped it horizontally, then did some tweaking.

lol, that was too easy, you could have lasted longer I'm sure lol

I was slightly suspicious as there wasn't any of the already leaked additions
Not a bad job though ;)

Well, it is now your duty to convince DJI that your dark grey looks better than their light grey... Ok?

Yes, a darker grey would definitely be appealing.

I don't need to know about any leaks or secret sources to tell that this won't happen.
Well maybe. but than maybe spring/summer 2025...
Also I personally don't have any need for 1" in a mini.

It's probably asking too much to include that and other options and still be able to keep it under 249 grams.
