I find it odd, what's your thoughts on it? Why has it got this aluminium bar "style" on the back?

The only things I can think of as a rough guess (and when I say rough, I mean really rough) is:

  • Back panel gestures (like the Vita)
  • Replaced with colouring on mass production
  • Anntenna
  • NFC
  • Protection; not fully glass so it won't smash like the previous glass iterations
