    My dad went to the Glendale holiday store yesterday, and saw all (no black) 920s. He said the cyan was glossy. And he knows the difference, having feeling my yellow one and that one. Also, he owns a cyan 900. We also know that cyan was said to be matte.

    cyan 920 is matte like black 920. Maybe it had a clear protective cover on.

    The one he saw was glossy, it was no case. Maybe it was a screwed up model?

    You should go check it out and bring back pictures for us, haha. That's weird if it really had no case or protective film over it

    Your dad is just a little confused. I own a cyan L900 and have handled friends' L920's multiple times and even though they are so-called "matte-finished" they have a different texture from the old paint job on the 900's. It's a little slicker and finer grain than the old paint job but it still qualifies as matte and feels VASTLY different from the glossy 920.

    @unstoppablekem Your dad aint wrong there are glossy versions of cyan 920, except that you dont get a brand new 920 with one of em. Its available as replacement cover, and is available all over ebay. Its officially produced by NOKIA but only as a replacement offer.

    Here you go:
    Housing Back Battery Cover Door Sim Card Tray Side Button for Nokia Lumia 920 | eBay

    There are 2 options: matte blue or the GLOSSY blue.
    I have verified it with the seller.
