A little more than a month ago, we reported on the Autel Evo 2 and the amazing specs this new drone is expected to have. Then we reported that Autel would make an official announcement during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (CES). However, as some of our readers rightfully pointed out, Autel was not among the exhibitors listed to appear at CES.

And even now, when you go to the exhibitors’ list on the CES website, you won’t find Autel Robotics. However, an announcement on Instagram tells a different story. Autel Robotics will indeed be at CES. Maybe they’ll be unveiling the new Autel Evo 2?

Will Autel Robotics unveil new Autel Evo 2 at CES?

About a month ago we shared information and specs on the new Autel Evo 2 drone with three user-changeable gimbal modules. The specs blew us away, and we have been excited to learn even more about this new drone.

Then we reported that the Autel Evo 2 would be announced during CES, but some of our readers pointed out that Autel Robotics was not among the listed exhibitors. But in a post on Instagram today, Autel announced that they will be at CES. So, fingers crossed that we will get to see this new and very promising drone.

You can find them at booth 26009 in the South Hall.
