iPhone 11 Pro What will the glass back of the iPhone Pro feel like?

I’m excited for the matte glass finish on the iPhone Pro but I have no idea how it’ll feel.

Do you think it’ll have more grip in-hand compared to XS? Will it feel very similar to the iPhone 5? Has anyone ever held something with glass of a similar finish / texture?

No idea. Gotta wait for reviews to hit or when the phone is released.

Maybe similar to the pixel 3? I ended up going to with an 11. But when I so store pick up I wanna go check out a Pro just to see/feel the finish in person.

I would hope for something like the MacBook trackpads, though they look more like traditional frosted glass which I tend to find feels unpleasant (texture is like nails on a blackboard to me) and is very slippery...
