Orbi outdoor sat?

So I'm interested in the Orbi RBS50 system, but I have a big outdoor living area and would really like an outdoor access point in the system. While researching the RBS50 and the available accessories, I can across a Negear Orbi RBS50Y at Fry's (and outdoor rated RBS50), but there is nothing on the Netgear web site or anywhere else on the internet?
https://www.frys.com/product/9427871  

 

Is this a product that was pulled? Or a new product that Frys isn't supposed to have on its site yet?

 

I can't believe that none of the consumer mesh or mesh-type systems have an outdoor unit yet?!

Good find, that sounds really awesome.  Best Buy for business mentions it too:

According to this, it looks relatively new: https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Netgear_Orbi_Outdoor_Satellite_(RBS50Y)

It's real.  Available for purchase now at Fry's and other places.  It works with both Residential Orbi & Orbi Pro.  Same RF performance as RBS50, except it's weather resistant, wall mountable.
