Yes, it is indeed real. I had some quick hands-on time with an APAC model today, though sadly there was no computer nearby for me to plug into. So all I have here are shots of the box, the mouse, and some observations.
The biggest surprise is that it's actually still RGB, but otherwise as expected switched to rubber cords instead of braided. The box isn’t really helpful when it comes to specs and features, with no mentioning of what sensor it's using, nor the weight of the mouse. Also missing from the box are features you'd expect to see if available -- no mentioning of spring tensioned buttons (though they feel quite like the G303 if you ask me), and doesn't appear to have on board memory. All buttons have micro-switches, but the scroll wheel feels tight and damp. I was really expecting a crisper and more definitive feedback. The packaging is also less premium in feel, substituting plastic for cardboard. It's probably more environment friendly this way though.
Local pricing as directly converted is approximately 35USD. However, there had been examples where the APAC received a similar, but lower end product as compared to the US (G310 keyboard instead of G410), so it's hard to say if this mouse will ever make it elsewhere.
