Phantom 4 Pro on the left, and Phantom 4 on the right.

If you check and compare them carefully, no big differences, but the dual-eye lense of Phantom 4 Pro is lower than that of Phantom 4. DJI engineer explains it is because when Phantom 4 Pro flys forward, the body may tilt a little forward as well. In this case if a specific height is reached, the sightview of dual-eye lense will be blocked and affected. In case of this situation, Phantom 4 Pro lowers the position of dual-eye lense. And thus Phantom 4 Pro can make use of dual-eye lense at faster speed.
