DJI Mavic 4 Release Date – What We Know So Far?

The Mavic 3 Pro was released 6 months ago as I write this article and perhaps it’s time to discuss the DJI Mavic 4 release date as DJI users have been waiting impatiently for it.

2023 was a busy year for DJI as we saw the release of multiple products, including the famous DJI Mavic 3 Pro, Mini 4 Pro an updated DJI Action 4, and the much-awaited DJI Air 3.

The original Mavic 3 was released in November 2021 and people were expecting an upgraded Mavic 4 in 2023 but all they got was a Pro version of the same Mavic 3.

Not bad but when you compare it to DJI Air 3 or even Mini 4 Pro, it has some shortcomings (hello O4+ transmission)

So if you are someone who is waiting for the next ultimate upgrade and flagship release of Mavic 4, bookmark this article and keep checking in every few months for new info and leaks.

DJI Mavic 4 Release Date

As of now, we don’t have any official communication or even leaks about the release date of DJI Mavic 4.

But keeping in mind the timeline of previous flagship drones from DJI, we can put together 2 & 2 and speculate when we can see the new Mavic 4.

Below is the timeline of the Mavic line.

DJI Mavic Pro (original)September 2016
DJI Mavic 2 Pro & ZoomAugust 2018
DJI Mavic 3November 2021
DJI Mavic 4 (speculative)May 2024

The first two releases are two years apart, while the Mavic 3 arrived three years after the Mavic 2, probably due to the Covid-19 production halt.

We got Mavic 3 Pro in May 2023 so nothing will happen in Q1 & Q2 of 2024. DJI won’t want to undercut the Mavic 3 Pro sales.

From this, we can estimate that the next in line for Mavic, i.e., Mavic 4, will be released in the fall probably in the November 2024 slot.

I will keep this page updated as we get more news, rumors, and leaks from the industry insider so bookmark this page and check in from time to time.

For now, if you are looking for a top-of-the-line, best-in-the-world consumer drone, Mavic 3 Pro is the obvious choice.

What to expect from Mavic 4?

For now, we do not have any leaked data to base our assumptions on about the possible specification of the Mavic 4 but we will surely start getting information as we enter 2024.

Personally, I think we will be getting the newer transmission system i-e DJI O4+ we have seen in the Air 3 and Mini 4 on the Mavic 4 as well.

DJI will also replace the aging RC Pro with an upgraded RC 2 Pro and announcing it with the new Mavic 4 will be their best marketing bet to drive sales.

  1. DJI has indeed been mostly predictable with their release cycles, see the Ronin line. The Mavic 3 Pro is a weight hog needing to be fixed for CE compliance, and most importantly, who wants to miss out on the Christmas bonanza? Also just saw the Mavic 3 Classic on sale today.. 😉 Announcement this month (October) seems plausible.

  2. We will not see a Mavic 4 this year, given that it just got a new refresh with the Mavic 3 pro.
    It is more likely to see an M4 in August-November 2024.
    The Mavic line up is expensive and not a drone that is renewed yearly and people would be p*ssed had they just slapped down $3K/£2599 on a new drone only for it to be outdated in just a few months from now.

    It also does not make financial sense while the M3 line is still selling well and is under no pressure from competing companies.

    1. Well it doesn’t seem to deter DJI from releasing the Air 3 a few weeks after the 3 pro and putting features in the new drone better then the 2 month old pro.

  3. Shouldn’t this sentence “From this, we can estimate that the next in line for Mavic i-e Mavic 3 will be released in fall of 2023” be referring to the Mavic 4, not 3? Also…i-e should actually be i.e. and if in the USA, be followed by a comma. 🙂

    1. Look at you being all clever.
      Thank god you’re around to nitpick these utterly inconsequential bits.
      Where would we find ourselves if not for your sharp eye?
      Bravo to you, Steve Wilson.
      Bravo.
