Rumors: DJI Phantom drone series is discontinued

Rumors reported by Dronedj indicate that the DJI Phantom 5 drone has been canceled:

"DJI Phantom 5 canceled? Yes, it seems so. Persistent rumors and people very close to DJI have informed us that the DJI Phantom 5 has been canceled. Not only is the DJI Phantom 4 (except the RTK) no longer available from the Chinese drone maker, the successor, the DJI Phantom 5 apparently is “no longer in development.” The product manager responsible for the Phantom 5, of which we have seen various prototypes with interchangeable lenses earlier, has been reassigned to another DJI project."

DJI denied the rumors in a statement for The Verge:

“Due to a shortage of parts from a supplier, DJI is unable to manufacture more Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 drones until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause and recommend our customers explore DJI’s Mavic series drones as an alternative solution to serve their needs. As for the Phantom 5 rumors, we’ve never said we considered making a Phantom 5 in the first place, so there’s nothing to cancel.”
