According to data provided by WinFuture, the Mavic 3 Classic ought to be less expensive than the standard model due to a missing feature. Meanwhile, DJI has now confirmed the date and time of its next hardware launch event.
Recent leakes provide the specifications about the upcoming drone, and also marketing images. The Mavic 3 Classic dispenses with its siblings’ telephoto camera, a 1/2-inch CMOS sensor. Instead, the Classic model must make do with the Mavic 3’s 4/3-inch CMOS and 20 MP primary camera. For reference, this camera will offer a 24 mm equivalent focal length, ISO 100-6400 sensitivity, and 5.1K video capabilities at 50 FPS. Additionally, the Mavic 3 Classic should be capable of recording videos in 4K at 120 FPS, or 200 FPS if you drop down to 1080p.
The Mavic 3 Classic’s battery life will be comparable to that of the Mavic 3 and Mavic 3 Cine, lasting up to 46 minutes between flights. The drone could weigh 895 grams, which is 5 grams less than the Mavic 3. The telephoto camera’s removal is the only reason the weight is different.
