DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0
The Latest Rumors:
It appears DJI is planning on releasing an updated Phantom 4. Naming the Device a Phantom 4 Pro V2 and not a Phantom 5 hints at an iterative upgrade and not a “brand new” drone. This is really interesting because we just got the rumored Phantom 5 Rumors & Leaks (<- with Video) a few days ago! What do we know so far about the Phantom 4 Pro V2? All the latest including leaked photographs below:
Update 5: Remote Controls hit FCC

Update 3: Rumored Specs P4P V2
The official name of the drone will be DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 and carries the model number WM331S.
The Specs (bold = confirmed):
- Model WM331S
- Remote Control Tx on 2.4 & 5GHz Bands
- US: 2400-2483.5MHz and 5725-5850MHz
- Disabled in firmware (US): 5150-5350MHz, 5470-5850MHz
- New SDR in the remote control (SDR = Software-defined radio)
- Ocusync II – offers low lag, wide bandwidth data link, enhanced SDR, enhanced efficiency radio frequency usage, multiple device connections.
- Sine Wave ESCs (Electronic Speed Controls) with FOC (Field Oriented Control). The P4P uses square wave ESCs.
The exclusion of certain MHz Bands is normal for products being sold in the US. Certain Countries only allow transmission on certain frequency bands. This is normal amongst electronics manufacturers.
Update 2: Phantom 4 Pro V2 leaked images
The first credible Phantom 4 Pro V2 leaked images have hit! Check out a top view of the new drone and a glimpse at the new Remote Control.
We see what looks like a normal Phantom 4 or Phantom 4 Pro from above the drone looking down. Immediately noticeable however are the newly designed props to the right of the drone.
The leaked P4PV2 Remote Control has a large opening for extra cooling along the rear of the RC. This hints at extra cooling being required. Lightbridge2? Ocusync II?
Update 1: Taiwanese Communications Authority receives Phantom 4 Pro V2 for testing
A Phantom 4 Pro V2 is spotted receiving Radio & Emissions Testing in Taiwan. We can compare this to the normal FCC Applications we see before a new drone launch from DJI. The next step would be to see this drone sent to the FCC for approval. DJI sends Test Reports to the FCC to enable DJI to sell the Phantom 4 Pro V2 in this case in the United States.
(Chinese Test Report mentions new Phantom 4 V2)
The rumor mill has been going strong lately. A Phantom 5 (check out our latest leaks regarding this drone) has been rumored, then supposedly DJI claimed this was a one-off job for an enterprise customer. And now we also hear word of a Phantom 4 V2! Just the name alone makes us wonder if this will be a Phantom Platinum with new ESCs and silent props?
