DJI Mini SE is an entry-level drone that has the same internals as the DJI mini First Gen but comes in DJI Mini 2’s body. It was listed online in the US on Walmart but was out of stock. Earlier, there were reports DJI won’t be launching Mini SE drone in the US.
DJI even put out an official statement – DJI Mini SE is a specialized product tailored for entry-level drone pilots in markets where consumer drone use is emerging. It uses the internal components of the Mavic Mini in the shell of the Mini 2, which generates slightly higher wind resistance but provides much of the performance of the original Mavic Mini at a very attractive price – Source dpreview.
Since DJI Mini SE internally is the same as the original First Gen Mini, you get all the same features of that drone, but in a better body. It has a 12MP sensor with up to 2.7K @ 30fps recording and offers up to 30mins of flight time. Since this also comes under 250g, you won’t need a license to fly this in many countries. You can fly the DJI Mini SE using the DJI Fly app which is available on the Playstore and Apple Store.
