Just received a new Speedy 30 in De and the handles and trim are Matt brown leather rather than the shiny leather like on my 2015 Speedy in de. Is this a new thing? Tried a search but couldn’t see anything obvious in the forum...

It changed to matte trims few years ago.

There are a few threads on the topic (too many to list), but if you search on Matte Ebene you'll get a list of threads on the change in DE Leather.
Thanks. Found some on here through Google. I have also realised that it has been about 5 years since I bought DE apart from SLGs so never paid attention to the change.
