Following numerous leaks, DJI has officially launched its new Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 drone today: basically a Phantom 4 Pro with a new 'OcuSync' transmission system for high-res low-latency video transmission, and a 4 decibel reduction in flying noise (that makes it 60% quieter).
Beyond these two features, the drone features the same build and internals as the Phantom 4 Pro. That means a 4K/60fps camera with a 1-inch 20MP Exmor R CMOS sensor and support for taking stills at 14fps in Burst Mode; an "aerial optimized" F2.8 wide-angle lens with a 24mm equivalent focal length, 8 elements (including two aspherical) in 7 groups, and the promise of low dispersion/distortion; and a mechanical shutter with a max speed of 1/2000s.
There's also the same FlightAutonomy system, an "advanced aerial intelligence and flight automation platform."
This spec comparison from DJI's website shows you what's new (and not new) in the P4P V2 as compared to the original Phantom 4 Pro and the Phantom 4 Advanced (click to enlarge):
As mentioned above, what's new about the P4P V2.0 is OcuSync and quieter flight. There's not much to say about quiet flight except that noise has been reduced by 60% over its predecessor. OcuSync, on the other hand, is a little more interesting.
The OcuSync HD video transmission system replaces Lightbridge in the original Phantom 4 Pro and Phantom 4 Advanced. Like Lightbridge, OcuSync offers a 7km transmission range and automatic dual-frequency band switching (where allowed). Unlike Lightbridge, it connects to DJI Goggles RE wirelessly, and features high-def, low-latency transmission—both convenient features for FPV shooters.
Here's a closer look at the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 from all angles:
The DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 is available now from DJI for $1,500 USD. When bundled with the Phantom 4 Pro+ V2.0 controller—which features a 5.5-inch, 1080p resolution screen with 1000 nits brightness—the price increases to $1,800 USD. Finally, DJI is also offering a $2,200 USD bundle that includes the DJI Goggles.

With DJI OcuSync Transmission, 60% Propeller Noise Reduction And Simultaneous Wireless Connectivity For An Enriched FPV Experience
Fans of the iconic DJI Phantom drone can look forward to the release of the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 (P4P V2.0), the latest variation of the Phantom 4 Pro. Packed with the powerful features of the P4P, the P4P V2.0 uses DJI’s OcuSync transmission technology for high-resolution and low-latency digital video transmission and improves the flight experience by reducing propeller noise by up to 60%. Users who utilize the first-person-view experience for work or for play, can directly connect the P4P V2.0 with their DJI Goggles for an immersive FPV flying experience.
With 30 minutes of flight time, 7 km transmission range, 5-directional obstacle sensing system and 1'' CMOS Sensor with 4k@60p video recording capabilities, the P4P V2.0 is a drone fit for prosumers and professionals who need a reliable and powerful imaging solution that can cater to diverse filming needs and mapping operations.
Retaining its iconic white airframe, the P4P V2.0 also has a Phantom 4 Pro+ V2.0 version, which comes with a 5.5-inch, 1080p resolution screen built-in to the remote controller for operators who often fly outdoors under direct sunlight.
