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.
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)
|DJI Mavic 2 Pro & Zoom
|DJI Mavic 3
|DJI Mavic 4 (speculative)
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.
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.
