Some info from Icom Japan’s website:

Name / Model Portable digital transceiver / IC-DPR30
(black, metallic red, metallic yellow)
Suggested retail price 39.800¥ (about USD 390,  as of September 21st, 2016!!!)
It will be released September 27, 2016 (color other than black is coming soon)
Annual sales plan number 12,000

It is 93.3cm high, weighing only 105 grams. It also features built-in Bluetooth® for connecting to a (probably proprietary) handsfree. It has 30 channel operation and there is no mention of frequency setting and a build-in antenna.

It surely is small and light-weight. There is no mention, however, the regions it is going to be available, although I think it’s only targeted in Japan.
