Shimano BR-M395 or Shimano BR-M445

I am in the process of choosing a moderately priced bike for my friend and I have a question about low-range Shimano hydraulic disc brakes.

I have Shimano BR-M445 on my Cube Analog Disc 2012. I went to the Cube site and saw that the 2013 model range is equipped with Shimano BR-M395. A lot of 2013 bikes from other manufacturers are equipped with Shimano BR-M395 as well.

On the internet, some people make an assumption that Shimano BR-M395 are the new version of Shimano BR-M445, just named awkwardly. It is believable, but I am not so sure about this. Can someone shed some light on this?

P.S. Sometimes I have problems with noise from my Shimano BR-M445 and I also wonder if Shimano BR-M395 are better in this regard.
