Update 5: The First leak of some of the accessories of the Osmo Pocket
The Osmo Pocket accessories have made their first appearance in the following leaked image.
Update 4: Video leaked of Osmo Pocket retail box
Update 3: Retail Box Images leaked:
The following images of the retail packaging of the Osmo Pocket have been leaked. In the photographs, we get a first glimpse of the final retail version of the device. On the front packaging, we see the previously leaked Osmo Pocket gimbal with the control handle. Interestingly there appears to be a plastic slider which will reveal a connection port for accessories. The second photo shows multiple Osmo Pockets, most likely from a retail store getting ready to sell the device right after launch.
The Osmo Pocket features an 875mAh battery (7.7v) most likely a 2-cell LiPo. There will be a new App to use with the Osmo Pocket, called the DJI MIMO APP. The App will be available for both iOS and Android devices on the App & Google Play stores. Another interesting tidbit is that on the rear of the packaging you see the made for iPhone blurb towards the bottom. The text mentions the iPhone X but not the Xs,Xs Max or XR, meaning the device has most likely been in a production ramp up for a while now. We don’t expect many shipping delays for this release.
Update 2: Official Trailer Video and Landing Page is up!
Check out the trailer and special Landing Page for the Nov. 28th Event:

In the trailer, we get a look at what the app will look like for the Osmo Pocket. We now know it will be the DJI MIMO App:
Update: DJI Osmo Pocket Leaked!
(DJI Osmo Pocket leaked in this latest photo)
Well there you have it folks. The product we will for sure see on Nov. 28th, the DJI Osmo Pocket. From this latest leaked photograph we get a closer look at the gimbal & camera. Sure enough that camera looks mighty similar to the camera on the Mavic 2 Pro. Will it feature the same 1″ Sensor?
This image shows a different design or maybe a different attachment, as we don’t have the lightning cable adapter but 2 additional buttons along with a dial and a small switch.
Because Life is Big Event Invite
The Invite image is usually a good indicator for clues as to what one can expect from the event. This time around the image features a cartoon-style pool in the center. The pools shape however closely resembles the shape of the Mavic 2 Pro’s Hasselblad camera.
In addition to the pool in the center, there is a travel & party theme to the Invite. People with suitcases, as well as a compass, speaker, drinks, and binoculars, can be found as well. There are frames coming out of the top center of the pool, which could resemble a camera sensor, traditional film frames or even just framed images.
The email received by Invitees talks about the location of the event which will be held at the Good Morning America Studios. The Event is scheduled to take 2 hours from 2 pm to 4 pm on Nov. 28th (Check the event’s time in your local time zone here)
No Phantom 5 OR is it coming after all?
Update: Check the latest developments on the DJI Phantom 5 Rumors Page. Recent developments sure make it plausible that we will see a Phantom 5 soon.
Of course, we secretly are hoping for the Phantom 5, but the invite makes us feel we’re getting a previously leaked compact Osmo (Osmo Pocket, more Proof below), a Spark 2 or perhaps even a new Osmo featuring the Mavic 2 Pros Hasselblad L1D-20c Camera with 1″ Sensor. We would expect DJI to make the invitation less playful if the Phantom 5 was really coming. In which case DJI may feature a slight glimpse of some sexy curves of the new drone if it was for a higher-end drone as we have seen for the Mavic 2 Pro Release.
DJI Osmo Pocket is coming!

How do we know this? A bit of digging of some FCC filings revealed more than initially found. DJI submitted FCC filings for an Osmo Pocket Wireless Module. FCC filings sometimes appear right before a release, when they do they help identify the product being released. The filings themselves are for an accessory to the rumored DJI Osmo Pocket. The Osmo Pocket Wireless Module is an accessory featuring a round, puck-like shape. It’s anyone’s guess what the wireless module will enable the Osmo Pocket to do.
We know it will communicate via 5.8GHz Wifi and Bluetooth BLE v3.0.
The big Hint – Osmo Pocket
Perusing through the FCC filing made us aware of the DJI Osmo Pocket. Included in the filings are devices used in addition to the product-under-test. This is the case when an accessory for the main product is being tested. Of course, it makes sense to test the accessory with the main device to measure signal and radiation strength, which is a large part of any FCC filing. The additional devices used for testing are listed in the “Support Equipment List and Details” section of an FCC filing. Look at what we found in this section for the Osmo Pocket Wireless Module:

This as much as officially confirms we will see an Osmo Pocket (OT110) soon.
Osmo Pocket Specs
If you look at a recently leaked image which first appeared when the Mavic 2 Pro was rumored, you can see a compact camera with gimbal laying on the table. If we take a closer look at this rumored Osmo Pocket you notice a few things:
- Spark style camera on 3 Axis gimbal
- Hopefully with a 4K camera otherwise we would be limited to Spark-like 1080P
- There is a built-in display
- Could show a live feed of camera
- or just settings on an LCD style menu
- Lightning adapter
- MicroUSB and USB-C Adapters likely
- Live transfer to mobile devices or transfer after recording for on-the-go editing
- Two front-facing buttons
- Record button
- OK/Select button
- A possible port at the bottom of the Osmo Pocket
