GoPro Hero5 Black came in a grey box

I just recently upgraded from my Hero4 to the Hero5 Black, and while watching unboxing vids I noticed that the color of my box was gray, while those in the videos and even google images are all black! Could mine be a fake?

Re: GoPro Hero5 Black came in a grey box

i've not seen a fake 5 Black yet, but who knows. GoPro do change boxes & styles between models sometimes, can you post a picture please

Re: GoPro Hero5 Black came in a grey box

I've attached the photo of the box. The color of number '5' is white. Most pictures I've seen online have a blue number 5.

 

Can you please confirm if this is a box for a genuine Hero5 Black?

Thanks,

Hajira

Hi, This is the new box for 2018. You have to rip off in the bottom to open the box and have the new logo placement of GoPro.
