DJI is teasing us with an open invitation to its next product launch - which is scheduled for 9am EDT / 2pm BST on Wednesday 08 September. But we can practically guarantee that its not a drone. 

The save-the-date notice from DJI shows a number 5 with a rotating head and a swivelling base that more than strongly suggests that this will be the company's next mobile phone gimbal - and a successor the the current DJI OM 4, which we can can also deduce will be called the DJI OM 5.
