DJI's upcoming mini drone is likely to come with significant upgrades based on the latest leak.

Jasper Ellens posted on Twitter several photos and a video of the DJI Mini 3 Pro, and shared that the new model will have huge front and downwarding-facing sensors. The front sensors are expected to help the drone avoid obstacles while the downwarding-facing sensors will help to prevent ground collisions. The current DJI Mini 2 only has ground detection sensors.

The Mini 3 Pro is stated to have an improved 3-axis gimbal and a camera with F1.7 aperture. The 3-axis gimbal is designed to be placed off to one side, which suggests that users can shoot vertical videos for sharing on social media. The bigger aperture of the lens will help the Mini 3 Pro take higher quality photos especially under low-light conditions. In comparison, the DJI Mini 2's camera has a smaller F2.8 aperture.

Battery life is slightly improved; the Mini 3 Pro has a battery capacity of 2,453mAh which allows a flight time of up to 35 minutes. The Mini 2 has a smaller 2,250mAh battery and a flight time of up to 31 minutes. Despite the hardware upgrades, DJI managed to keep the Mini 3 Pro at 249g which means users do not need to register with the authorities to fly the drone.

DJI is expected to unveil the Mini 3 Pro in the coming weeks.
