The biggest surprise is that the Mavic 2 will come in two distinct models, Pro and Zoom.
Although the catalog leak does contain names and details of DJI's new drones, we can't know for sure that these will be in line with the end result when they do actually launch. As far as other details about the drones, the models should offer up to 31 minutes of flight time, omnidirectional obstacle sensing, top flight speed of 45 miles per hour, and more. That's what the print industry risks every day, and an error like printing an ad way out of schedule can lead to a Mavic mishap... just ask drone- and gimbal-maker DJI.
An image of the upcoming Mavic 2 drone was first leaked online earlier this month, and now United Kingdom store Argos has published a catalog that shows off the new drone in a prominent advertisement which also lists the drone's features.
DJI is the world leader when it comes to drones, and there's really no questioning why.
Argos added in a statement: "Unfortunately we were informed of the delay in the launch of the DJI Mavic 2 after our new catalogues were printed". There's also a dolly zoom on the, er, Zoom version. A drone that can avoid collisions in all directions would be a first of its kind at this level of the market.

In Riverside County, east of Los Angeles, an arson fire that destroyed seven homes last week was 82 percent contained Monday. Firefighters continue to make progress on the Carr fire , which has grown to 110,154 acres but is now 27 percent contained.
All we have right now is what to expect when the Mavic 2 drones finally land, and a pending decision on whether you want a Hasselblad camera with no zoom or the flexibility of a 2x lens.
The leaks do not reveal the pricing, and DJI still hasn't announced an official launch date after it cancelled it's July 18 launch event "See the Bigger Picture". "We look forward to giving our fans an incredible drone experience as soon as we can".
DroneDJ reports that an "Enterprise" edition of the DJI Mavic 2 has also been spotted on the German DJI website. It doesn't look so different from the new drones revealed by Argos, but it seems to have been created to handle heavier payloads and swap out different attachments for commercial flights.
