That event has however since been postponed, and while it's not quite 100 percent confirmation that a Mavic successor was what DJI was planning on revealing on the day, a purported image of the company's next major consumer drone was leaked online over the weekend - and it shows off several new features.

So long as the leak is accurate to begin with, the remaining questions mainly revolve around the launch date and price. In fact, it is much closer in form to the Mavic than the more recent Mavic Air.
