DJI Phantom 4 Pro Drone No Longer In Production: DJI Phantom 5 Coming?

9:34 AM

It’s been months now since the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 has been out of stock. This time around, the Phantom 4 Pro drone is officially out of production. Does this mean that the long-awaited Phantom 5 drone is finally coming?

From Out Of Stock To Out Of Production

The folks over at DroneDJ has documented when the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 began going out of stock. The issue began in early November 13, a couple of days before its “Because Life Is Big! event.

Although there were some whispers about the Phantom possibly being launched at the event, in the end, it was the DJI OSMO Pocket hand-held gimbal camera who was the star of the show.

This time around, DJI has finally stated on their site that the Phantom 4 Pro is officially no longer in production. This is all thanks to this screenshot taken by DroneDJ at the company’s website.

So Does This Mean The Phantom 5 Drone Is Coming?

Not really. The thing is, if we read this tweet made by DJI regarding the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 not long ago, the company doesn’t really say straight up that the Phantom 5 is coming.

Hi Josh, due to a shortage of parts from a supplier, DJI is unable to manufacture more phantom 4 Pro V2.0 drones until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.

Now, for those wondering where is the link to the tweet, we, 73Buzz, tried to find the link of the tweet but we couldn’t find it. We tried searching for it at @DJISupport and @DJIGlobal but failed. If any of you our dear readers know where to find the link, do share it with us at the comment section below. 

For those interested in what the screenshot of the tweet looked like:

Going back to whether the Phantom 5 is coming or not, the only part clear was the shortage of parts. But of course, there could be many underlying reasons as to why this happened. Perhaps this was only a momentarily issue and the production of the Phantom 4 Pro will eventually continue again? Nevertheless, it does really let our imaginations run wild, especially to the ones who have been waiting for a Phantom 5 to come.

When Will The Phantom 5 Be Launched If It Exists?

So far, the only rumor we’ve found is that it could be launched in late April or May 2019. Although no strong evidence was given to support this claim, it’s the only lead we got for now. But given that we’re already in March and assuming that a DJI event will happen next month or the month after that, we probably would hear something about it soon.

Do you think this is a clear sign that the DJI Phantom 5 is coming? Tell us in the comment section below.
