The Logitech G brand announced the Logitech G502 HERO Gaming Mouse this week, which is an upgraded version of the company’s iconic and best-selling device. Retaining the same iconic shape as the original, the new mouse has been updated with the latest technologies, including Logitech G’s next-generation HERO (High Efficiency Rated Optical) 16K sensor, LIGHTSYNC RGB technology, 11 programmable buttons, five optional weights, and a braided cable.
“The original G502 is a fan favorite, but we’ve developed some incredible sensor technology since it first launched,” said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of Logitech Gaming. “Adding HERO 16K to G502 makes it even more awesome, and we think people are going to love it.”
As we mentioned earlier, the Logitech G502 HERO offers Logitech G’s industry-leading HERO 16K sensor, featuring an all-new lens and updated tracking algorithm to deliver ultra-precise tracking with no acceleration, smoothing or filtering over the entire DPI range. Logitech G’s HERO 16K sensor is capable of exceeding 400 IPS and delivering 16,000 DPI tracking.
The mouse also has 11 buttons, all programmable through Logitech Gaming Software (LGS) so you can customize commands and macros. There is an adjustable weight system with five 3.6g weights and a dual-mode hyper scroll. Lighting can be personalized across approximately 16.8 million colors using Logitech G’s LIGHTSYNC RGB technology and onboard memory can store up to five profiles, making it easy to take your customized settings with you.
The device also has textured rubber side button grips and an updated braided cable. The mouse’s upgraded mechanical switch, developed in partnership with Omron, delivers extreme performance and a 50M click durability. The overall weight of the Logitech G502 HERO, and the mouse’s center of balance can be adjusted based on the placement of the adjustable weights.
The Logitech G502 HERO Gaming Mouse is expected to be available at global retailers in October 2018 for a suggested retail price of $79.99. You can find the official product page here on logitechg.com. The original model is still a best-seller on Amazon.
