The DJI Phantom 4 Rumor Mill

Googling the Internet for “DJI Phantom 4” or “DJI Phantom 4 Rumors” and you can quickly become overwhelmed. So how do you sift through everything? What is fact and what is fiction? It’s still a bit early to be definitive, but thanks to what Jason at RC Drone Arena refers to as “very reliable sources,” we now have a few details. I’m gonna qualify the following list with the statement that these are all rumors.

  • Larger Capacity Batteries: This should increase flight time.
  • Improved Camera: While we may not see resolutions in excess of 4K, there is still room for improvement on bitrate, frame rate, low light performance, color processing, etc.
  • Improved Video Stream: Look for 1080p as a replacement for 720p.

What else could we see?

  • Improved Obstacle Avoidance
  • Dedicated Customizable Buttons
  • Dedicated Return to Home Button
  • Improved Shell
