DJI Mavic 3 Pro (leaks, specs and updates page)
Considering the DJI Mavic Air 2 comes with 34 minutes and Autel Evo 2 has 40 minutes of flight, I'm expecting at least 38 minutes, if not more from the new Mavic 3.
As you will see bellow, there's an actual patent pending for dji to step up their stabilization game with some optical stabilization besides the mechanical one.
Mavic 3 Range

Here's what DJI mentions in the patent files:
