German technology site WinFuture has posted leaked information about DJI's Osmo Mobile 4 (or OM 4) camera stabilizer for smartphones, as well as a promotional video that appears to be official.
The shared photos and videos show that the smartphone is mounted magnetically. In the Osmo Mobile 3, the smartphone was held in place by squeezing it from both sides. With Osmo Mobile 4, the smartphone is now detachable with magnets. There are also magnets with a ring that can be attached directly to the smartphone.
The magnetic fixation system allows the smartphone to be removed and the Osmo Mobile 4 to be folded up when moving between shots.
The included app adds a dynamic zoom feature that automatically zooms out as the camera moves forward, making it appear that only the background changes while the subject's size remains the same. ActiveTrack 3.0 also seems to have a smarter automatic tracking feature for people and objects. Other features such as gesture control and hyperlapse should naturally carry over from Osmo Mobile 3, as well.
According to WinFuture, the new device will be powered by the included 2450mAh battery for up to 15 hours. Charging is via USB Type-C, and it will reportedly be priced at less than €150 (19,000 yen), and WinFuture says it will be available soon, although it's not yet officially announced.
