Logitech G has reinvented its G502 gaming mouse and is set to release the new version – the G502 X – on Sep 20.

The G502 X gaming mouse was announced on Thursday (Aug 30), and will come in three variations – the standard G502 X, G502 X Lightspeed, and G503 X Plus. They are said to be equipped with “advanced gaming technologies”.

All three variations will carry the newly-introduced Lightforce hybrid optical-mechanical switches, which are said to offer “faster speed, performance, good reliability over the lifespan of the mouse” and “precise actuation with crisp response”.

The G502 X is also equipped with the Hero 25k high-precision gaming sensor, which offers a one-to-one ratio accuracy at “sub-micron levels” and “zero smoothing, filtering or acceleration.”

The Lightspeed’s wireless protocol also allows for connectivity between two Lightspeed devices to one receiver using the Device Pairing Tool in G Hub. 

Users can choose to operate G502 X with the same receiver as the Logitech G915, G915 TKL, or G715 keyboards.

The G502 X Plus model comes with Lightsync RGB which features flowing, customisable 8-LED lighting which adapts as the user plays. It also has startup and power-down effects, and battery optimization through active play detection.

Both the G502 X and G502 X Plus are available in black and white colourways locally, while the G502 X Lightspeed will only be available in black.

The Logitech G502 X and G502 X Plus gaming mice are slated to release at Logitech official stores on e-commerce platforms, as well as in all major retailers from Sep 20 onwards.

The suggested retail prices are $119 and $249 for the G502 X and G502 X Plus respectively.

The Logitech G502 X Lightspeed, however, will only be available exclusively at Logitech Official Stores on e-commerce platforms only, with a suggested retail price of S$209.

More information on the specificities of the new mice can be found on Logitech’s website.
