Same electronics. Different case. The UV-5R is still shipping. It is the
firmware version, not the case style,  that can determine which is newer.
Firmware versions newer than BFB297 all masquerade as BFB297 when pressing
and holding the [3] key while turning on the radio. You can see the 'real'
firmware version by using CHIRP. Visit the Miklor.com website for details.
