My 11 Pro arrived today, and I was a little surprised at the finish of the sides around the screen. While you can't feel scratches or anything, the surface is just irregular enough to catch light. It's not the curved vertical sides, it is the actual edge of the side as it surrounds the phone. The photos make these look like chips, but they are not.

Not like my other Space Grey phones, or my X. Is this common? I am always using a case, but still a bit of a surprise. And even with a case it shows at the bottom.

Here are a couple photos.
