What To Expect From DJI’s Event Later Today?
As already mentioned, the “Because Life Is Big!” event will be held today in New York at 2:00 pm EST. As for the products that are expected to pop up on the event, well, so far we have three.
Firstly, of course, we have the Osmo Pocket. Given the number of leaks that’s been spotted, it would be surprising if this handheld camera/gimbal combination won’t be featured on the event.
Secondly, we have the Phantom 5 drone. For months, there have been some speculations/expectations that DJI will release the Phantom 5 this year. Whether it will happen or not, it’s hard to say.
Thirdly, this information came from DroneLife. According to the report, the upcoming event may be AR/VR related.
