It appears that DJI will soon be announcing a new entry to its smartphone gimbal series with the Osmo Mobile 4 (abbreviated as “OM 4”). Thanks to a leaked promotional video, we now know the design and features of this new device.
The video was uploaded to Twitter by regular leakster Roland Quandt, who later provided more details of the Osmo Mobile 4 on WinFuture. Unlike its predecessor which required users to slide their smartphones into a claw mount, the new gimbal now allows for quick and easy mounting via magnets.

As demonstrated in the video, users will have a choice of attaching two different magnetic connectors to their phones. The first being a phone ring-styled rear attachment, and the other is a mounting bracket. Obviously the first option will require the use of adhesive, while the latter is more of a temporary affair. Regardless, these connectors ensure a quick and snappy mounting process onto the OM 4.
In terms of other features; the DJI OM 4 offers 3-axis stabilisation, a battery capacity of 2,450mAh (chargeable via USB-C), Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, and a slew of software-based video capture modes. As for the latter, the gimbal’s companion app provides features such as gesture control, hyperlapse, Active Track 3.0, an Alfred Hitchcock-like dolly zoom effect, and the ability to track and zoom to a subject as the camera moves further away via DynamicZoom.
According to Quandt, the DJI Osmo Mobile 4 will allegedly retail around EUR150 (~RM740). He added that its launch is expected to be held by the company sometime soon.
