End of Life for Mavic Pro (Platinum), Phantom 3 & 4 and Osmo announced by DJI

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.

End of Life for Phantom 4

In a memo (dated August 30th) to retailers, 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. Even though this version of the memo is in Chinese, we have been able to confirm the existence of the document with retailers here in the U.S.

The most interesting part of the document is the fact that it also announces the end of the Phantom series. With the Mavic 2 already in place as a successor to the original Mavic Pro, and especially the Pro model possibly cannibalizing the sales of the Phantom 4 Pro, it would seem safe to assume that a successor to the Phantom series cannot be far off.

Not too long ago we have already seen photos of what might be the new Phantom 5 drone with interchangeable lenses. DJI said about those photos that they were from a one-off project for a commercial customer, a story that few people believed.

Our guess is that there is a very good chance that we will see the new Phantom 5 before the end of the year and yesterday’s memo from DJI only strengthens our belief.
