It looks like the beloved DJI Osmo Pocket is getting an upgrade with the soon to be released DJI Pocket 2. The new Pocket 2 has hit the FCC database along with a new wireless microphone module, presumably for the Pocket 2.
Two new products from DJI’s gimbal division SZ DJI Osmo Technology have been released onto the FCC database suggesting DJI will be releasing the upcoming DJI Osmo Pocket 2.
The new name
Along with the rest of DJI’s latest products, the upcoming Osmo Pocket 2 will get a new shortened name leaving it at just DJI Pocket 2 even though the FCC label appears to mention R-C-osm-OT212.
DJI is either no longer a fan of the Osmo branding or is just wanting to simplify the name of all its products to make it easier for consumers to remember the product names.
Pocket 2 Do-It-All Handle
While the name of the product released on the FCC database isn’t the Osmo Pocket 2, we do know it’s on the way since it’s for the upcoming camera. We get to look at the Pocket 2’s Do-It-All Handle, which appears to be similar to the current base you get with the Osmo Pocket, although it could also be a larger handle for the Pocket 2.
The second is less likely, as it features a USB-C port but doesn’t seem to have a battery built into it. Maybe it’s a pass-through the handle? It also appears to have a tripod mount underneath it, which could mean the USB-C connection moves it to the side to charge while on a tripod.
Wireless microphone module
Something we weren’t expecting DJI to release with the Pocket 2 is a wireless microphone module, it does make sense though! The new wireless microphone module looks to be a clip-on design, with a 320 mAh battery that charges with an input voltage of 5 volts at 0.4 Amps.
The microphone module is likely smaller than the wireless module offered by Rode and will connect directly to the camera via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, or a built-in microphone receiver module. As the name doesn’t have Osmo or Pocket in it, I assume it will likely work with other DJI products that are compatible.
