15 'DJI Phantom 5' stories

January 2018 - September 2018


The DJI Phantom 5, the successor of the DJI Phantom 4 series. We expect this drone to showcase the best photo and video qualities possibly in a prosumer drone. Right below the much more expensive package of the Inspire 2 and Zenmuse combination. The DJI Phantom 5 is rumored to be released early in 2018.

Watch this space for all the latest news on the to-be-released DJI Phantom 5.

DJI Phantom 5 Stories September 6

It happened before when we wrote about these leaked photos earlier this year. DJI reached out to us and told us that these two silver colored Phantoms were not prototypes of the new Phantom 5, but a one-off for a commercial customer. Now after Billy wrote about these new photos of seemingly the same two drones, DJI contacted us again to reaffirm that these are not, in fact, Phantom 5 prototypes.

DJI Phantom 5 Stories September 5

Three new photos surfaced today on Twitter, that appear to be prototype models of a new Phantom 5 drone. These same drones have popped up before in these older images, which were denied by DJI. But this new round of leaks gives us a different look at the aircraft and camera assembly. If this is, in fact, the next version of the Phantom, it doesn’t look like many exterior changes have been made.

Update: DJI reaffirms that these photos are not a Phantom 5 Prototype. expand full story

DJI Phantom 5 Stories August 31

DJI announces the End of Life for the Phantom 4 Pro/Pro+, Phantom 3 SE, Osmo, Osmo+, Osmo Mobile, Mavic Pro and Mavic Pro Platinum in a memo to retailers. The announcement comes right after the introduction of the Mavic 2 Zoom and Pro drones last week. Especially the inclusion of the Phantom 4 Pro/Pro+ is interesting as it may indicate that its successor, the Phantom 5 may not be far away.

DJI Phantom 5 Stories August 29

With the release of the new Mavic 2 Pro, DJI has single-handedly jeopardized sales of the Phantom 4 series as they introduced a new folding drone that carries a 1-inch sensor. Professional photographers and videographers gravitated towards the Phantom 4 Pro as it featured a camera with a 1-inch sensor and was easy to travel with. Now that they have included a similar camera in a much smaller drone, what’s next for DJI’s Phantom series? expand full story

DJI Phantom 5 Stories June 15

Chinese drone-maker DJI just sent out an invitation to the press to come and “See The Bigger Picture” on July 18th at 10 am in New York. The invitation was sent by email and contained a top-down aerial photo that seems to show a mountainous area with trees, a river and possibly a lake in the center. Toward the outer edges of the circular image you see clouds and then it fades into black. There is no indication if this photo is from an actual location and/or how much of it may be photoshopped. The image also has a resemblance of an eye (iris and pupil), which nicely ties back into their slogan: “See The Bigger Picture”, which is superimposed over the photo. Like with previous announcements from DJI, it is hard to get much information out it, but I think it is safe to say that DJI will almost certainly be announcing a new consumer drone this summer with an emphasis on image quality. Possibly the new Mavic Pro 2 drone.

DJI Phantom 5 Stories May 24

Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve seen various photos pop-up of two grey/silver DJI Phantom drones with an interchangeable lens system. Many people, including us, had been hoping that this was indeed a prototype of a new DJI Phantom drone with interchangeable lenses. Potentially an amazing setup for any serious photographer, who appreciates the flexibility and quality of fixed focal length or prime lenses, but without breaking the bank. Sort of a mini Inspire 2 / Zenmuse X7 combo. However, without saying that such a drone may never be introduced, DJI did state in an email to DroneDJ that these photos do NOT show a new DJI Phantom 5 drone, but a one-off custom built drone for one of their enterprise customers. Bummer, I know…
