Gopro hero session

Unfortunately, I'm not getting my doubts.
I would like to know why my gopro hero session, when connected to the computer, is named hero4session.
My second doubt and that I've been seeing the gopro hero session on the internet and I saw that the box is white, different from mine that is black, does that change anything?
3 doubts
Is there false gopro that connects to the gopro application?
4devida.
I hope you respond as quickly as possible !!

Re: Gopro hero session

Only GoPro cameras will connect with the GoPro app. The Session was first released as the Hero4 Session. It was rebranded as just Session when the Hero5 cameras came out. There is no difference in the cameras, only a few accessories, the name, and box changed.

Re: Gopro hero session

Since the Hero4 Session and the Session are in fact the same camera, there is nothing to worry about. There is no reason to think the seller swapped boxes out have doubts about your camera. Go out and enjoy it! 👍😉
