Question: iPhone 8 paint falling off ring around camera

Hi there

Wondering if anyone has heard of this issue - seven week old iPhone 8 in grey - handled with extreme care at all times has three spots of paint (or anodising) peeled off from surface of the body coloured metal ring that goes round the rear camera. It is in an area that is physically impossible that it has made contact with anything when being placed on a flat surface (on the inside edge of ring near to glass lens). Applecare not very interested at the moment and say they not heard this before.

Thankyou in advance folks.

iPhone 8, iOS 11.1, Space Grey

That's really unfortunate.
